Story
Hi there! My name is Bumblebee (tabby) and my brother Dragonfly (black) were found at a TNR colony with our other siblings. We are happy in our foster home and now looking to accept applications for adoption. We would love to be adopted together as we are best friends! We are both a year old. We are both pretty rambunctious and playful. Expect lots of running around and romping with one another. We are both also pretty social and sweet. I tend to warm up pretty quickly while my brother takes a bit more time. Please note, I have a bobtail and what is similar to "scoliosis". I also have small kidneys that are not negatively impacting me at this time. Regular check ups will be necessary to catch any early issues. We are neutered, microchipped, vaccinated with our FVRCPs, fecal tested and treated, dewormed, flea treated, and snap tested for FIV/Felv (Neg). I have also had an abdominal ultrasound, xrays, and blood tests to ensure I'm in good health. You can apply directly at www.friendsforliferescuenetwork.com/adopt-la
