Molly and Mark were raised in Rescue House foster care as kittens and were adopted together; seven years later, their adopters divorced and neither could keep the cats.

Molly is a friendly girl who will snuggle right up to her people—in their laps and under the covers at night. She’s quite the conversationalist and will want to tell you about her day when you get home; the proper routine is to give Molly some attention right away. She’s seven years young and enjoys playing with a laser pointer, catnip, and crumpled paper—Molly is excellent about adjusting her play level to her interactive play partner’s mood, varying from gentle bats to roughhousing.
Mark is quieter than his sister and takes a little longer to warm up to strangers, though it’s said he never does anything wrong and is a gentle sweetheart. Mark is super soft and likes to flop on his back for belly rubs; he’ll nestle next to you though prefers to be beside you versus in your lap or picked up. He also joins you in bed at night. He’s fond of feather and string toys as well as the laser pointer.
Molly and Mark’s relationship is very close—they chase each other for play, sleep together, groom, etc. They were devastated when in the initial divorce separation they were also split from each other, one to each home so that the kids could always have one of their cats; they were miserable until reunited once more. They need each other and MUST be adopted together.

Mark is comfortable with other cats though Molly thinks her brother is the only cool cat and will hiss and swat at anyone else. We don’t know their feelings on dogs. They have done well with gentle kids.

Molly and Mark are a wonderful and enjoyable pair of cats whose family situation became untenable for them; they are understandably confused, yet yearn to find that stability and love once again. Will you give these siblings a home that will last the rest of their lives?
