** Bonded Pair **

Shade and Buttercup are practically identical tortie sisters who were surrendered to an urban shelter earlier this year, along with several other cats and kittens from the same household. We got a big surprise on intake day when our vet told us that Shade was pregnant with at least 4 kittens and would deliver in 2 to 3 weeks! The girls had upper respiratory infections so it wasn’t safe to spay Shade, and her FIVE babies were born on March 15. Because the girls are very closely bonded, and Shade even quite dependent on her sister, we decided to keep them together until Shade’s babies were old enough for adoption. Shade and Buttercup are incredibly sweet and very calm kitties. Shade is the more mature of the two, and will sometimes very cutely stand behind her sister to be petted, letting Buttercup be the spokeskitty. Buttercup, is quite playful and an attention seeker: she will roll around, purring loudly and head butting your hand asking you to pet her.  She also loves to explore and spend time with her foster family while Shade tends the babies. The kittens are still nursing, so Shade and Buttercup aren’t quite ready for adoption. But we think once you see the girls together, you’ll be willing to wait to bring them home once the little ones are ready for adoption too. Shade and Buttercup would like to be adopted together!
