Story
This is Watson! She is 1 1/2 of a bonded pair. She MUST be adopted with her brother Radcliffe. They come from a loving older couple who recently lost their home to a flood and now are no longer in a position to care for them. Watson is a 10 year old Tortie with the attitude to match! She is super independent, but is ALWAYS making sure her brother is near by! She’s playful and loving, but headstrong! She’s the queen and she knows it! She is braver than her brother, so she’ll be ready to explore while he sits back and watches. Radcliffe and Watson would thrive in a calmer environment. Absolutely NO dogs and NO young children. Please note that they are both still very loved by their former owners.

Story
This is Radcliffe! He is 1 1/2 of a bonded pair. His sister is a Tortie named Watson and they MUST be adopted together! Radlcliffe and his sister come from a very loving older couple that unfortunately lost their home to a flood and are now no longer able to care for them. Radcliffe is a very loving, very cuddly and squishy boy, but he can be skittish so new places take a while for home to get adjusted to. He is 10 years old, but you would never know it! If he sees a feather he is pouncing on it! When he creates a bond with you he will always want to be near you, no matter what and you won’t be able to say no when you look into his eyes! He is quirky, but super sweet and loving. Both Radcliffe and Watson would do well in an environment where there is not much activity. They need a home with absolutely NO dogs and NO young children. They look forward to meeting their new fur-ever family!
