Story
Klaus and his brother Damon are a bonded pair. I am looking for a TEMPORARY HOME for them together. We have a dog, and to keep them safe from the dog, the cats are emotionally neglected and isolated. We can't give these dear kitties what they need. Damon and Klaus came to live with us 3 years ago. They are very sweet and healthy. Klaus loves to cuddle once his gets to know you. Damon is especially friendly and loves to cuddle anytime you sit down. Klaus is a lover of toys on strings and hunting for toy mice. They have no behavior problems. Their actual owner wishes to reclaim them, but his current health and income are not stable. He used to live with us too. The cats have been happy and well-fed, and they go to regular vet check-ups. But ever since their owner moved out, they have been depressed and they get very little attention from us. With my small children and large dog, my home is not a good home for them.

Story
Chino is a fun loving guy who likes to entertain you while his litter sister looks on. I prefer Chino and his sister Charli to be rehomed together. They are bonded together. They are litter trained, enjoys spa baths and tolerates dress up time! I’m truly heartbroken I can no longer keep them because of a sudden change in my health. Charli is laidback and confident. They love to snuggle, preferably sleep on your chest to hear your heartbeat. If you have a loving heart and home please consider loving these babies.
