Meet Martin & Medgar

When a lactating feral cat staggered into the yard of an East Texas farmhouse and planted herself at the edge of the property line, it was immediately apparent that something was wrong. The finder offered the cat food, water and shelter, but could tell that she was going downhill fast. In the distance, the person heard faint cries of kittens from an abandoned greenhouse on a neighboring property. She called our rescue, and together we discovered three 1-month old babies, alone in the greenhouse. It seemed that the gravely injured mama cat -- we suspect a snake bite -- had overcome her fear of humans, just long enough to alert the nearby homeowner that her kittens were out there and needed saving. We brought the little family to our vet immediately, and the mama cat, her body becoming rigid with paralysis already, was humanely euthanized as we held her three precious kittens and wept.

We named the kittens after Civil Rights Activists, in honor of their mother's brave stand on their behalf. Rosa, Martin and Medgar went to stay with a trusted foster human who has been a devoted caregiver for almost three months now. She has gotten to know them well and offers the following descriptions:

Martin is cuddly, playful, and mischievous... but also very sweet and very human oriented. This handsome tuxedo boy will run around and play, but when he gets sleepy he finds his brother and a human to cuddle sleep and purr on. He loves to be with humans and watching what they’re doing, and he LOVES his brother, Medgar.

Medgar is quiet, shy, cuddly, playful, gentle, and very dependent on humans. He will follow me around all day and just wants to be held and cuddled. I carry him with me while I do chores inside. He loves soft blankets, sleeping and playing with his brother, being in humans' arms and laps.

And both boys like to sit on our shoulders. They are good with kids, dogs and other cats.

These brothers are deeply bonded and must be adopted together. (Sister Rosa is posted separately and may be adopted independently of her brothers.)
