These fun-loving kitties were born behind a shed in Holtville; their mother wasn't comfortable in close contact with people and was spayed and released to be cared for at a distance once her babies were weaned. The X-kittens were all born with differing degrees of wobbly ataxia, and thus were monitored until they reached their teens to ensure all was well. Xane and Xena still have some impaired balance and coordination but are champs at getting around.

All of them love to play with their toys as well as each other and are social kitties who like to be in the center of the household action, plopping down wherever's convenient (for them) to monitor your comings and goings... and they don't even care if you're vacuuming, they'll just lie down in front of it.
---Xane is highly food-motivated and will come running if you shake a treat container. He is always in the middle of the excitement and has an outsized sense of curiosity. Xane's zest for life is infectious and it is so easy to get distracted by his silly antics and mannerisms. He loves pets and likes to twist over on his back; he's not exactly asking for belly rubs, but he's sure cute! Xane has a pronounced wobble, but he doesn't let his body's lack of coordination stop him from having fun. He has gotten better at jumping up and down but will need a little extra mindfulness to make things easy for him.
---Xena is a curious, talkative, and purry busybody who will be right in the middle of the kitchen or main room... wherever the people and action can be found! She will plant her paws a little wide for extra stability, since she has the most pronounced wobble, but Xena has learned to compensate for a lot and dismisses any concern. She climbs on her own, though sometimes can use an assist getting down and like Xane is best with an attentive adopter. Sweet Xena loves attention: pets, treats, laps, yep it's all good!

Xane and Xena have grown up around many other cats and will each need a feline friend - each other would be ideal! They don't mind dogs and have had exposure to multiple size canines. We recommend older children who can be mindful of Xena and Xane's wobbliness; they have done well around the tweens they've met.

Xane and Xena excel at charm. Will they captivate you?
