Zena and Athena are sweet and social 9½-month-old bonded female siblings who need a new home as owner was allergic to cats. Athena is a beautiful silver tabby and Zena is a striking brown tabby with apricot highlights. Athena is very active, playful and curious whereas Zena is more calm and relaxed. Both are very social and love people; they are good with kids; other cats and dogs are unknown. They would enjoy sleeping next to you if allowed. Since these beauties are tightly bonded, they should not be separated.
Lao Tzu said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” and that’s what has happened for my friends, Mango, Moses, Bookstore, Riley, Petro, and me. Although our starting point wasn’t exactly that far away, we did come quite a distance in order for TALGV to save us from a shelter that is closing. It’s taking us a while to settle in after our long trip, but if you just spend a few minutes with us, you’ll see how much we’re all longing for human companionship and interaction – especially that wonderful ear and chin scratching! And purr? Well, let me tell you! We’re all “yearlings” who have tons of time ahead of us to be able to fill your heart and home with love – one purr at a time.
They say it’s what one does that makes you beautiful, not superficial appearance, but in my case, I’ve got them both covered! After my human died, his family was unable to keep me, so at the glorious age of 12 (which qualifies me for Free Vet Care for Life), I’m looking for love all over again. My people said that I was a very gentle lady who got along fine with the dog (I wasn’t crazy about the kids that visited though!), enjoyed playing with “stuff,” used my scratching post religiously, and was just generally a sweet, no-sweat companion. Twelve really isn’t all that old in cat years (some of us live into our 20s!), so take advantage of my life experience (and free vet care!) and let me pour some sugar on your heart!
You know how Frank Sinatra used to be called “old blue eyes”? Well, my brother, Marvin, and I could well be called “old yellow eyes” (except that we’re not old at just one year!). Our mom had us since birth, and loved the dickens out of us, but when her health declined to the point that she needed help in her home, she simply couldn’t care for both of us, another cat (our mom), and her dogs too. Being teenagers, and still playful as all get out, she knew that we’d blend into another family in a jiffy. We got along great with her small dogs, but when the big ones visited, we made ourselves scarce, so a home with “little creatures” would be perfect for us. I’m betting yours would be just the ticket!

You know, “gets on furniture” shouldn’t be considered “problem behavior” because most people like cats on the furniture next to them! Since all the other comments about me were positive: “gentle/tolerant, quiet/laid back,” “doesn’t react to other pets – i.e. playful dogs,” I ought to get high marks in the deportment department! I also like to be combed, enjoy belly rubs, and will give you a dog-like lick now and then to show my affection. I do live up to my name, however, at 17 pounds, but as you humans say, that’s just “more of me to love!” Or with your help, I could become a Weight Watchers adherent and slim down,too! I’m old enough to have Free Vet Care for Life, so let’s get together and enjoy life!
If you ever needed an example of “exponential,” then my siblings and I are it! It started, as it always does, with two unneutered cats back in 2013, and by March 2015 the total was 15. We were all forsaken by our owner, but at least she left age and personality information about us on our carriers, and judging by our health and temperament, we were all very much loved once. My brother Biggun and I are sweet, outgoing, and engage in all the typically endearing kitten things that make you fall in love. You could make us all happy by taking both of us home for Christmas!

When my senior dad died, mom moved to Colorado to be with her son who lives in one of those “no pets allowed” places, so my brother, Spirit, and I got left behind. After spending ten years with the same quiet people, you can understand, then, why we’re both pretty introverted at the moment. Mom said that although we’ve always been the shy, retiring types, we do bond well with older people once we feel comfortable. I’m a lovely lady though (especially if you’re one of the many classic tabby fans!), and I come with Free Vet Care for Life, so if you have a peaceful abode that you’d like to share, please think of me and my brother, too — we’re awfully attached to each other and need to be adopted together!
