Help! Momma & Two Sons need home!
I was laid off when my employer closed in November and have been looking for employment ever since. I have just been offered a job in NC and need to get down there ASAP, but the place I found to live will let me have my dog but not my three cats. Lilly, the mother, was found taped up in a box with another pregnant cat on the doorstep of the vet clinic I worked at ten years ago. She was halfway through her gestation, so I adopted her and nursed her back to health (she was skin and bones with a big belly of babies). She had five healthy kittens. I kept one, Oliver, who is a seal point. The rest I adopted out, but then one (Cody who is a flame point) had to come back because the people couldn't keep him in their apartment. Lilly is very unusual looking and has a mix of gray and orange on a cream-colored base coat of hair, and Oliver got her gray and Cody got her orange. All three have tourquoise blue eyes. They are healthy, spayed/neutered, and still have their claws. However, they have always scratched just on their cat tower and never ever on any of my furniture. If I stand in front of Oliver, pat my chest and say, "Jump to Momma!" he will jump up into my arms and just purr away. He also plays fetch with a little fuzzy ball - I'll toss it down the stairs, he'll run after it, carry it back to me in his mouth and then drop it at my feet. He'll do that over and over for 5 - 10 minutes. All three are big love bugs and even people who hate cats say they love my cats!
If anyone can help me find a home for them, I would be most appreciative! I'd like to keep them together, of course, but will split them up if I absolutely have to. With them, if the new "parents" want, will come a litter box, bowls, toys and a five foot tall cat condo.
