If these two were not black cats they would have been adopted long ago. But there you have it. Black cats, black dogs are simply hard to place. People who love black cats really love black cats but those people are far and few between.
Take Breeanne and Breelyn as an example. They landed in an animal shelter April 2010 as four week old kittens. Cared for in the shelter when they were 8 weeks they were placed in adoption. And there they stayed for over a year. That is a long time to spend in a cage, and that was their entire kitten-hood.
The shelter called us and asked us to please consider them. The two cats had certainly run out of time but shelter staff had fallen in love with them long ago. And that is how we ended up with these two black cats.
When I first brought them home they were funny. I kept them in a cage first so they could get use to their new surroundings. When I let them out, they just stared at the walls and the ceiling reaching out their paws to see how far away it was — ooops, can’t touch it – too far away. They were so funny. They had no depth percetion at all. But if you know cats, you know this didn’t last long and soon they were zipping all over the place re-living their lost kitten-hood.
Now they are settling into what cats should be: lounging on the couch, hanging by the door, running after that pesky little red light, devouring toys, enjoying cat nip and rubbing up against my leg.
These two girls are a delight. One is more timid but I could not tell you which one as they look so much alike. One has a spot of white which can be seen at certain angles or in some photos.
They are both great with other cats — actually, they are very social. And they are fine with dogs. One of them likes to rub against Telly or Zoe.
They are incredibly healthy!
