I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and good with cats.
Belinda and Provolone make the perfect couple. Yes, she is a bit older than him, but there is nothing wrong with being in love with a younger man, or an older woman!
How did these two love-birds meet? I will tell you:
Belinda was adopted from the shelter when she was a kitten. A few years later, she was returned to Good Mews. She was so depressed she had to be force-fed. She did not understand why she lost her home, so she did not want to go on living. But we were not going to let her die! So we fed her by hand, and gave her tons of love and told her not to worry, life would get better!
Provolone also came to the shelter as a kitten. He was the shyest kitten in his litter. He watched all his siblings go to forever homes, but nobody ever picked him. Before he knew it he was removed from the kitten room and placed in the shelter with the big kitties. So he made the best of it and tried to make friends. Then one day he saw a sad kitty sitting all alone. He went to comfort her and soon Belinda was back to her happy self. She found someone to love.
These 2 are always found together, snuggling. Lots of times we will see Provolone lying right on top of Belinda, I don’t know how she breathes. But she is not bothered by it.
Both are a little shy, but still love people. Once you start to pet Belinda she begins to purr…and she has the loudest purr!! Provolone is a very sweet boy and is starting to enjoy people petting him and showering him with affection. He feels more comfortable when he is with Belinda and will allow you to hug and kiss him, as long as she is around. They are seeking a quiet home together. If you are looking for 2 extremely bonded cats, please come meet this couple!
Belinda is 9 years old, so she is eligible for our Golden Companions Adoption Special - anyone 65 or over can adopt one of our older cats for $65 (Belinda and Provolone together for $125). Everyone knows that senior pets are harder to adopt than their kitten or young adult friends. Research has shown the medical benefits of owning a pet, especially as we get older. They lower stress, lower blood pressure and make us happier. Senior felines make a great match for senior humans!
