Meet Icy - Bonded with Stella

We are two sweet, beautiful formerly feral girls who met in rescue and now are bonded, so must be adopted together. We are very well-behaved. We are quiet, except that Stella is a purring machine, and undemanding, although Icy would be happy if you would pet her all day long.

We need you to be calm and patient, because we take longer than usual to adapt to new environments (at least several weeks). Can you be willing to sit down and let us come to you rather than walk toward us? However, once we are comfortable, we are fabulous pets. Icy will hang out with you. She often gazes into your eyes as if she is trying to understand every word you say. Stella sometimes likes you to pick her up and put her front paws on your shoulder and give her pets and kisses. Often, we will crawl into your lap and stay as long as you let us.

We are good with other cats of all ages, but if they try to bully us, we stand our ground. We are not as playful with toys as some cats are, but we like our cat tree, and Icy loves her Cat's Meow toy. We like to chase each other at night.

Please give us a chance! Our foster mom can give you more tips on how to help us get comfortable. We have come such a long way from when we were rescued, when we were terrified of everything, and our foster mom is confident that we will advance even further in the right home. Stella's kittens were adopted easily, in 2015. Icy (rescued in 2014) can still get skittish if she doesn't expect something, but she now sleeps with her foster mom and two cat foster siblings. We were in several foster homes for long periods of time previously, and one adoption attempt didn't work out because the adopters didn't fully understand us. Please let us make you happy!
