Rescue Me ID: 17-08-27-00226Coalie, Bobby, Flaxen (male)

American Shorthair Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello! Our mom is an outdoor stray - she is not a wild/feral, but she is very cautious about people and everything because she is a smart mom! She got combo tested, spayed, and vaccinated and then went back to live where we all came from. We were young enough that the Feline Felicity lady decided to take us in and try to get us more used to people so that we could be adopted and hopefully have an easier life than our mom has. Coalie is the blue silver gray tabby. Flaxen is the smallest and very pale orange - almost like blonde/buff/apricot tabby. And Bobby is the darker orange and of course, bobtail, hence his name. We all get along great ... (Read More)and have been introduced to other adult cats from 1 yr olds to seniors as well as a couple of very cat-friendly dogs who are about 45-55 lbs. We prefer people who are very cat experienced since we were born as feral kittens. And we do not like a lot of unpredictable chaos in the home, so young children and lots of coming and going company and stuff would probably not be good for us. We have all been combo tested negative, dewormed, have flea prevention applied, have three sets of fvrcp vaccines, our rabies vaccine, and two sets of leukemia vaccines. So, our annual exams and vaccines will not be due again until 2018. If you do not have any other cats, we would love to be adopted together so at least there are two of us and we will have a kitty friend all the time. We love to play, and we like company. We are still getting used to human companionship and will probably grow more loving toward people over time. As of right now, Coalie is the most attached to Ms Felicity. He sometimes talks to her and will give her little affectionate licks. Flaxen is the smallest and kind of a high-pitched cry-baby sometimes ... especially for food or attention. Bobby is brave and adventurous and has a human foot fetish, so you have to be careful he is not winding around your feet/legs when you are trying to walk. We are all very good boys about using the litter box - we use an extra large uncovered box and prefer the pine pellet natural litter (Tractor Supply's equine pine pellets in the 40# bag are the most cost effective) and we mainly eat TSC's 4Health All Life Stages or Purina One Indoor Advantage. We love just about any canned food. All we want for the 2017 is our forever tlc responsible family and indoor home! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-08-27-00210Twinkle (male)

American Shorthair Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Hi! I'm Twinkle. I'm not abused, just neglected - have been mostly shut in a small bathroom alone with one window for almost two years now. I showed up at the back of a property with a small covered shed-like area where straw bales were stored (the straw was put in dog houses for the outdoor dogs to help keep them warm). Little did the people know that I was watching them when they went out to take care of and feed the dogs. I soon made myself known because I was just a kitten, and it was getting so much colder. I needed help and wanted more food than I could catch or find as winter came on. The people tried to make sure I had warmer, more ... (Read More)sheltered spots under there and they added canned food to my dry food when it got below freezing. They were afraid I would die because I was so small, young, and on my own - but they kept trying to win my trust. Finally, I started looking forward to seeing the people, not just the food & fresh water, and I would come out a little and meow to greet them. On warmer days, I would come out fully visible in the back yard and play and play in the sun and even nap in the sunlight out in the open. In April, I was trapped and taken to a place where I was combo tested negative, neutered, fvrcp & rabies vaccinated, and left-ear-tipped. Now I have decided once I get to know you, I LOVE kind and gentle people attention! I want to find some people and an indoor-only home to call mine! Could it be you? (Less)
