Facts about Calliope

  • Breed: Calico
  • Color: Calico Or Dilute Calico
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
My name is Calliope and I was born in September 2006. Along with my brother Possum (also AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION) and sister Zoe (already adopted), we were abandoned as kittens in a South Plainfield backyard. There was no sign of our mother, just the three of us and a bag of food left ripped open.

Scared and alone, we all cried and cried. Fortunately, someone heard us and came to our rescue. The kind family took us in temporarily, but could not keep us, so they called W&W who eagerly agreed to help. Since then, things have really looked up. My sister Zoe was lucky enough to be adopted by the same nice family, which leaves just me and Possum. Since the beginning, we really relied on each other and now, we are as inseparable as can be. I would hate to think of a time when I did not have my brother around, so with my foster Mom's agreement, we think that the ideal candidate for adoption is a family or single willing to take home both myself and Possum - together forever.

About Whiskers and Wags-4-Adoption

About Our Rescue Group...

Whiskers and Wags-4-Adoption is a 501(c)(3), all volunteer, non-profit organization. We are a small group with 3 foster homes. We pull animals from the Jersey City Shelter, Perth Amboy Shelter, Associated Humane. We also accept turn-ins and strays. We are members of the New Hope Program in New York. All our animals are tested, vet checked and spayed/neutered if age permits. We participate in the NJ State Spay/Neuter Program. Animals taken in by Whiskers and Wags stay with us until adopted. Some will remain with us. The cats are not caged in the foster homes. In one foster home, the cats live with dogs.
