Have you ever had that joyful experience of finally getting a shy cat to lean into petting with love? Gat & Gal are looking for a Superhero just like you!
Gat (short for Gatita, Spanish for little cat) is the sleek brown tabby lady and Gal (short for Gallifrey for you Dr. Who fans) is her silver counterpart. They came to Happy Cats with their brother Tai when their people moved out of the country.
They were rescued from trying to survive outside, so they have strong survival instincts that make them Funny Valentines, very cautious at first. Once they get to know you, though, they will be your Snuggle Bunnies, both loving little ladies who will curl up next to you with purrs and headbonks.
At only about 5 years old, they love play whenever you bring out the wand toys. Gal tends to hang back, but will pounce and jump with the best of them as long as she’s not overshadowed by someone more confident. Both girls really love ball toys and will take them out of the Turbo Track to play with them!
Because of their early experiences with humans, these are special Superhero Kitties. They will need a family with extra patience, willing to let them blossom at their own pace.
They have lived at Happy Cats for many months and will need at least 2 months in their Safe Room, a quiet space to learn to trust and love their new family, as well as our Hands Off handling to help them build trust. Superhero Cats need to be the only pets in the home.
Superhero Kitties come with a kit that includes their cat-approved carriers, cat tree, confidence-building supplements, a petcam for their Safe Room and their favorite cat toys. They also come with a home installation and training to set them up for success by their favorite volunteers from our Behavior Team plus behavior support for a full year after their adoption.
They are both about 5 years old and need to be adopted together, as Gat helps Gal be brave. But they love their Tai kitty too, as you can see. He can often be found curled up with one or the other of them.
Thanks to a kind donor, their adoption fee will be covered when they are adopted together. Along with their Superhero Kit that includes their spay and neuter, vaccinations, microchips, food and litter and treats for 3 months, and a free well-kitty checkup each to help you get started. If you have room in your heart and home for both girls and their brother Tai, they can all be adopted together for just $80!
