Tommy and Trixie Tripod's Info...
|Breed:||Maine Coon||Color:||Orange Or Red Tabby||Age:||Kitten|
I am already neutered and up to date with shots.
Tommy Tripod : 5 month old red tabby male Maine Coon mix
Trixie Tripod: 5 month old red tabby female Maine Coon mix: ADOPTED 5 11 13
March update: Tommy and Trixie are doing great. They race all over and are definite play monsters. They are happy, healthy gorgeous kittens who just happen to have three legs each. They are super loving to all humans, familiar and unfamiliar. They are slower to accept other cats and would probably do best as the only cats in the household..I don't know about dogs.
Update: Tommy is larger than his sister with a great plume of a red tail. He is currently a little shy but he overcomes that quickly as he plays.He is very soft fur is a glorious deep red color. And his nose is sooo pink.

So there is the mystery. I have no idea how this came about. And never will, I guess, though of course it drives me nuts not to
know. A clue may be that they do not like dogs at all. But maybe
they were just fearful for other reasons. They each get along on their legs very well and are happy, loving, playful kittens.
You can see they are super adorable. Along with much of the world I am a big lover of red tabby Maine Coon mixes.The sweet loving nature of the red tabbies is well known. I know there is a family out there who will take in this pair and enjoy them so much. They need a home without dogs.
I have just gotten them from the original foster mom and don't have new photos yet. More info soon.( It is 1/ 8/ 13 )
They eat wet and dry food and are litterbox perfect. Some kind-heated family will love these beautiful Tripod Twins.
Their foster mom is Harriet in Santa Cruz.
Rescue Group Info...
Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of purebred and other exceptional cats.
Our mission is to educate pet owners, breeders, and shelters about our breeds, and to place our cats with Forever Families who will give them the proper care and love they deserve. We carefully match cats with their Forever Families by evaluating each cat's personality, temperament, and special needs. Then we determine the best fit for both the cat and the new family. Please note that we do NOT ship cats.
Our adoption fee is $175 unless otherwise noted. This fee allows us to provide excellent vet care for the cats that really need it. The healthy kitties make it possible for the sick ones to be saved.
Our cats are neutered or spayed, vaccinated and FELV/FIV negative. We are not a shelter. All of our cats are fostered in private homes. We ask that anyone wanting to meet one of our cats first fill out our online application. These cats are treated like members of our family, and we want to ensure that you will do the same.
When you adopt from Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue, you are saving TWO lives - the cat you adopt and the cat who gets to take its place in Rescue!
READY TO ADOPT?
First, call the name of the foster mother if you are interested in an individual cat. Once you've chatted, she will ask you to fill out our easy online application. Just "Click to submit"! Next, one of our wonderful volunteers will quickly contact your veterinary and personal references. Then they will give you a call to chat and answer any questions or concerns you may have about the adoption process. Once approved we will help you set up a time to come and meet the kitty or kitties you want. If it's a good match all around you will be asked to sign a contract and pay the adoption fee and you can take the kitty home that very day.
Our adoption fee is $175. That includes the kitty, spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, tested for FIV/FELV.
We do not ship pets, however, you are welcome to put in an application and once approved make plans to come out and meet the kitty and fly it back with you.
