When Bergie and Shela’s mom passed away last October, her best friend said she would take them and find them great homes. And she planned on doing just that. It shouldn’t have been difficult. Both cats are sweet and affectionate. They are beautiful, too.
Shela is the long-haired tabby who loves to cuddle in laps and under covers. She craves love and petting and is happiest when she has a hand on her head, or someone is giving her a tummy rub. She’s lovely inside and out. Bergie is her brother — a long-haired black cat who is not as big as he looks. It’s all fluff! There’s no picture of him, but he’s beautiful.
Both cats act like dogs in that they are very affectionate, follow people around, and aren’t shy when getting into laps. They love to play together. Kathy, their current caretaker says:
Both love fish flake treats and to rub around in cat nip from time to time. They both have been very good with my two female Boston Terriers over the last many months and lived with a young boy (10 years old) until October, so they grew up with him.
The two siblings were found under a porch and rescue by the woman who had them for seven years. Not only did she take excellent care of them (they are neutered and spayed and vaccinated), they lived with young children and dogs, and everyone got along. They also lived with other cats until those cats died. They have always been inside cats and should remain inside at all times.
These guys belonged to a dear friend of mine; she ‘adopted’ them from under a porch in Barrington when they were kittens. Sadly, she passed away last October and she had asked me to find them a new home. I’ve been doing my best to reach out to people via email and Facebook, but have had no success. I am now in a bit of a pinch as I am moving at the end of May.
