These little girls came into rescue separately but have teamed up and would love to find a furever home together. Bessie was found living alone in a box behind a Bradford takeaway. Dot had been bought from an irresponsible breeder, full of fleas but given into rescue because she ran around a lot …. and wanted attention! Despite their tough starts in life they’re both lovely little girls. Dot loves to climb on a lap and snuggle. Bessie less so, but when she’s stroked revs up the most amazing purrrrrrrrrrrr. Dot rushed to greet Bessie the minute Bess arrived, before she’d even got out the carrier. They started by just playing together but now can mostly be found snuggled up asleep together too.
They’d fit quite happily into any home. They’ve been used to being around lots of other cats here, they’d be fine with sensible kids and I think would cope with careful introductions to a friendly dog.They’ve been wormed and fleaed and microchipped, and have started their vaccinations – second vacc due in a couple of weeks and already paid for at Vets4Pets Millhouses. They’ll need to be spayed at 6 months old, or earlier if your vet does earlier neutering, and to stay indoors until then. After that they’d like a safe garden to explore though we very strongly recommend that they are kept indoors during hours of darkness – especially with them being black cats they’re at risk on roads at night.
We always homecheck prior to adoption and ask a minimum adoption donation of £60 per kitten. There’s more about our adoption process here: http://www.8livescatrescue.org/adoption-process.html and you’ll find some more photos and stories about them (and our other cats) on our blog: https://8livescatrescue.wordpress.com/ and facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/8Lives/
