Meet Blossom (black) and Bella (black and white); they are 2 year old speyed female domestic shorthaired cats that have been with us since the end of February 2007; as they had been left behind by their previous owners and were living in a garden with several other cats.
Unfortunately, one of the other cats was FIV+ and although Blossom and Bella were tested and cleared, it can often take a while for FIV to become apparent and the pair had to be put on hold for three months, whilst we waited to retest them. Thankfully, Blossom and Bella have been given the all clear and are now ready for re-homing, but for some reason they’ve attracted little interest from the public; which is a shame because they are a lovely pair.
They are very pretty sweet natured cats with lovely black and white markings. At only two years of age, this pair is still young and active, enjoying playing with one another. It is possible that Bella and Blossom are related in some way, as the bond between them is apparent; they are extremely close and are always ready to curl up together in their pod.
Bella is a little more timid than Blossom initially, but once she gets to know you she really enjoys a good fuss. Because of this she may take a little longer to settle in a home environment, but once she gains confidence she should prove herself to be a lovely, sweet cat. She is especially fond of being stroked under the chin and rolling over on her back! Blossom is a little more confident and immediately comes forward for attention. She loves to be made a fuss of, although is a bit apprehensive about being picked up. However, is getting used to cuddles and is becoming a really loving cat.
Here in the cattery, they both seem to really enjoy sunbathing and stretching out in their run, relaxing and sleeping the day away. They would probably benefit from a laidback environment in which they can be made the centre of attention and get pampered a lot! Litter trained; good with other cats they are seeking a new loving home where any children in the family are aged 8+.
After being here for so long and having to wait so patiently for results, it really is about time that this lovely pair got a new loving home. Can you offer them a new loving home together?
