Rescue Group: Hyde Park Cats
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Black & White Or Tuxedo||Age:||Kitten|
A family of three kittens and a young mom were reported to us a couple of months ago by several different South-of-the-Midway volunteers. One kitten was napped with an old-fashioned string and box method; two others, plus the mom, were trapped by one of our volunteers in collaboration with Jen, upon whose porch the family had landed.
The little family went to the vet, and then Mamacat Claudia went home with Jen. Eden and Eve, the two remaining kittens, went into our foster-care system. They were at the same home as the volunteer who trapped them, where they spend a lot of time with Toby, the adult foster cat.
Eden, the tabby baby, may be shy at first but is a real cuddler at heart. Her human friend Melissa writes that "she sits in my lap, purrs, and rubs against me. She likes her back scratched and even rolls on her back to have her belly rubbed."
At Mary Jean's, where they learned about the indoors and constant food supplies, although they remained very wary of their human visitors. Next they moved to Laura's house, where they had plenty of space and many human and feline visitors. They would squeeze themselves under the radiator to demonstrate their fondness for the humans, but would come out to greet the resident felines, especially their foster brother, Toby.
Eve and Eden never bit or scratched when handled...they were just terrified. But, with the patience and kindness of their human visitors, they have blossomed into sweet, friendly kittens who greet Laura when she comes home.
Eve (the black and white kitten) is the most curious and is constantly getting herself into adventures. Eden is more wary, but once she thinks it's safe, she runs and tumbles without abandon. Eden really wants to be friends with the resident cat, Simon, but he is old and grumpy and not very tolerant. But she continues to try to win him over. They both will climb in bed with Laura in the morning, purring and demanding attention. When Laura works in the living room, they are always nearby, playing or lounging in the windowsill.
Eve and Eden are inseparable sisters. Because they are a bonded pair, who love and groom each other and sleep in each others arms, they must be adopted together.
