Once again, I’m hoping the wonderful Balloon Juice community can help some wonderful cats find homes.
Last November, I took in three cats – Cornelia, Julius, and Portia. They’re pretty unusual, in that they’re an actual family: Mom, Dad, and daughter, and both parents dote on their child. My plan was to try and get Mom and daughter adopted together, which is hard enough, but it’s become clear Dad is equally attached to his kid. They’re so adorable together, I’d really like all three to go to the same home, but that’s almost impossible to do in rescue.
Here are their PetFinder bios:
I know most orange cats are males, but the orange cat in the photos is Cornelia. She’s the most confident of the three. Then there’s the Dad, Julius, who’s a small brown tabby. He’s timid at first, but once he comes out of his shell, he’ll sit in your lap all day long or perch on the back of the chair and put his paw on your shoulder. Their daughter, Portia, is a perfect combination of the two, a fluffy torbie (brown with orange patches) who was born on July 18, 2012. She’s fascinated by computers and loves to watch me work.
They’re some of the most good-natured well-behaved cats I’ve ever fostered, and I’ve fostered lots of cats. They like to be held. They like to sit in laps. They have excellent litterbox manners. They’re good with kids, dogs, and other cats (though Julius can be a bit of a bully at first). It’s a joy to watch them play together. The other day, Portia was hiding in a paper bag and both parents were batting at the bag. They’re fostered through the Montgomery County MD SPCA – http://www.mcspca.org/. So if anyone was interested in adopting them, they’d have to fill out an application and get approved, but that also means they’ve been fully vetted and are spayed/neutered and up-to-date on shots. Also, as their foster, I’d be more than happy to answer any questions anyone might have.
If you’re interested in a ready-made cat family, or know someone who might be, send me an email at annelauire (at) verizon dot net (click on my name in the right-hand column) and I’ll put you in touch with Mel.
