  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 34857399
  • Hair: Unknown

Herkie and Boo lived happily with their human until she died; at that time, they moved in with their deceased guardian's mother and became her companions, along with one other feline housemate, for three years until she became ill and was hospitalized. For 10 months, friends cared for them though they did not get the amount of love they had been used to, and in December of 2016 she passed away. In the settling of the estate, nobody was found who could take on the care of the cats permanently, and the property needed to be sold. The Rescue House was approached about finding them a new home.

Herkie and Boo understandably need a little time to figure out what's going on now in their lives, yet they crave love and will be the sweetest companion kitties ever for their new forever person!
Herkie is especially fond of sunbeams, and if you've got a good piece of hardwood flooring where it regularly hits and gets all cozy warm... that's just the best place to bask and roll, and his black fur is excellent for soaking up sunlight. Though not really a lap cat, Herkie loves his brushes and pets and will follow you around the house.
Boo is a big guy with a big heart. He will sit on your lap until your legs go numb and rub-rub-rub his head against you; bring along the brush and you'll be able to get that luxurious coat of his positively gleaming. Boo's a sucker for love and also for food: the rustle of the treat bag is his favorite sound, and when it's mealtime then Boo insists on having his share first (he can get a bit possessive of his dish and does best fed a little distance apart from others and preferably first). After dinner, Boo would love another petting session and an evening spent in good companionship.
Herkie and Boo have been together all of their lives and are close. We do not feel it would be right to separate them at this stage of their lives: they MUST be adopted together.

Herkie and Boo have lived comfortably with a dog before as well as other cats. They would rather not have too bustling-busy a household, so a calmer one with older children or adults would suit them best.

Herkie and Boo are wonderfully sweet boys who still have years of love and companionship to offer. They know the value of a close bond with a person and they won't settle for less. Will you be the one to open your heart and home to two darling fluffy kitties?
