This pair of sisters was rescued during a trap, neuter, and release event. They were both very shy at first, quite typical of colony kittens. They have adjusting to brushing, scratching, and attention in general. The canned food they had no trouble adjusting to at all and now mew to let me know their turn is taking way too long to come around! They are purring, liking scratching and petting, and no longer hiding from me at all. They have had no litter box issues, they love to sleep together, get along great with all other kitties, and growl at each other when eating (also common in kitties from feral colonies where competition for food is fierce). In working on their personalities I know Alaina is the more dominant sister, she often eats first but will share with her sissy quickly. There is no aggression between the sisters, just talking about who eats first! They play and chase, and wrestle, and cuddle; typical siblings! Since I started with a hockey theme I decided to go with it and the girls are Mariel Lemieux the tortie and Alaina Lemieux the white with black and with a moustache to boot. This was a slight modification of the first names of Mario (one of my husband’s favorite all time hockey players) and his brother! Mariel is Heartland #10464 and Alaina is Heartland #10464. The girls are spayed, up to date on shots, micro chipped, treated for parasites, and negative for FIV and FeLV.
