Now that I have that out of the way, I want to tell you about my girlfriends, Veronica and Jellybean (Ronnie and Jelly). Jellybean's the all black cat in the front. They're so sweet and gentle, they get along with other friendly cats or dogs, and love humans. Playful, easy to brush and groom, total sweeties.
Pairs of cats are always harder to place and these two have had to go through it twice. They used to be pretty shy but were adopted by a wonderful lady who helped them bloom into the cats they were meant to be. They're much more people friendly and outgoing now. Sadly, she was unable to care for them any longer, so they're back at Wayside Waifs, up for adoption again.
Jellybean is all black and some people shy away from black cats, which is a shame. Many of the most friendly cats I've met were black. My theory is they're smart enough to know they have a bad rep (undeserved) so they try harder. Their features tend to fade into their fur too, so it's hard to capture them in photos or video. In Jellybean's case, one of her ears is folded back. Her hearing is perfect, but people wonder about it, so pass her by instead of asking about it.
These girls have been together almost their whole lives and are BFF's. They'd be lost without each other, so must go home together. If you're in the market for a great kitty, please consider these two. They'll entertain each other, won't cause trouble and are priced right too. At the moment, Wayside is waiving adoption fees on adult cats. But even after that ends, when you adopt a pair of cats, the second is half price. Vets often only charge one office visit for both cats too.
Here's a link to a video about the girls and see waysidewaifs.org to view all the adoptable pets and more details about these girls too. You won't regret it!
Thank you to my friend, Cathy Sherman, for allowing the use of her photos.
