Angelou is a torbie (tortoiseshell-tabby) girl, with great spots on her sides. Both her eyes were infected, but it was extremely bad in her left eye, which was nonfunctional and painful. That eye was removed safely during her spay surgery. The cornea of Angelou’s right eye is extremely scratched, distorting the color of her eye. Her sight is limited, but she can see well enough to run, jump, and play with Hughes. She doesn’t seem able to keep up with very fast movement. Angelou and her brother Hughes are a bonded pair; they sleep with each other, and you will see one of them grooming the other. Angelou might be relying on Hughes’s “good” vision to help her own. Preference will be given to a home that would be able to welcome both.
We'd love to see all kittens go to homes that have another young, playful kitten, or to send 2 of them out as a pair (which gives you a great pair discount rate), but we do not require pair adoptions. If you prefer to adopt just one, and you don't have a similarly aged kitten at home already, please read our information on Single Kitten Syndrome . Then, when you apply for a single kitten, please let us know in the "Comments" field how you plan to deal with the "kitten crazies."
All kittens arrive spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped and with all age-appropriate vaccinations. Adoption fee for Angelou is suggested minimum $50 (more gratefully accepted). Discount available for pair adoptions! All pets are placed with a 30-day money-back trial period, to give pet and family enough time to discover any unknown allergies or other conflicts. Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your donation to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!
