Meet Jem & Scout! They are finally ready for their furever home and cannot wait to meet you.

Scout & Jem are a handsome grey, long haired brother and sister duo. Jem is the smaller kitty, a dilute tortie with soft peach patches. Scout is the huge handsome one who looks a lot like his cousins the Maine Coons only no fancy papers to go with him.

In September 2021 a sister shelter in Northern Colorado received 30+ animals as part of a hoarding case. Of these, 23 were cats who were all living in one room of this person’s home. The other shelter had no space in their kennels and they were scared and shut down. 

Happy Cats transfered in four from this shelter, including Scout and Jem. They stayed with a staff member for a month prior to transport to Happy Cats and were often found hiding in the dresser or under the bed in their safe room. 

They traveled the 2.5 hours to Happy Cats and found comfort with the consistency of our Onsite Behavior Team members. Now both are trusting humans, playing, and creating bonds with new people! They are volunteer favorites and it is a continual pleasure to watch their growth!

Jem is a “gem” of a cat that will make you smile everyday. She is adorable, playful, affectionate and smart. She loves her big brother, Scout and has shown him the path to trusting people.

Scout is a regal boy with a fun and distinctive personality. He is a deep thinker and likes to observe before jumping into play or affection. Once he is in, he is all in! Scout loves to play and he considers himself a mighty hunter. His favorite “prey” is anything on the end of a string!

Once hand-shy, Scout now enjoys being brushed and will sometimes initiate lap time. He will always be looking towards Jem as his lead in human interaction. Jem is always ready to greet you with her sweet presence.

This pair would do best in a home without dogs or children. A family who has had experience with shy cats before is preferred.

This special pair comes with a home installation by a volunteer from our behavior team who has been working with both Jem & Scout. They also come with a Feliway plugin to calm them and  help with their transition, their favorite tunnel, a large carrier and their favorite bedding and toys. We ask that you come spend time with them for at least a couple of visits to give them a chance to show you their sweet purrsonalities.

At about 3 years old, they can be adopted together for $120, thanks to the Friends and Family discount, sponsored by Petco Love! It also includes their spay & neuter, vaccinations, microchips, food and litter starter kits and a free well-kitty checkup for each one to help you get started.
