Keiko and Chamisa are a bonded pair of catolescent sisters who are great friends and playmates. Keiko is the miniature black panther and Chamisa is the orange tabby with deep amber eyes.
They were rescued from a dangerous situation at a trash company. Mom had them under some equipment right by the trash trucks, coming and going. Can you imagine how noisy it was?
Even though they didn’t have enough food at first, somehow they managed to dodge the trucks and survive long enough to be rescued as older kittens.
Our volunteers spent many weeks gaining their trust and building their confidence. They had a few weeks with one of our loving foster families too.
While both take a little time to warm up, Keiko will be the first to offer sweet little purrs for pets, stretching her tail flat to her back in a gesture of love.
Chamisa will need more time to earn your trust. Playtime is her love language, and that will make her happiest of all. We think she had the worst experience before coming in, as she’s the most wary of her litter.
Both are extremely playful and will love pouncing and leaping for just about any wand toy you have. At just about 8 months old, they are still very much kittens at heart.
The girls are part of our Kitty Superhero program. They will need someone with the patience to let them blossom at their own pace and the commitment to working with them to gain their trust for at least 2 months in their Safe Room. If you’re the one that shy cats are naturally drawn to, they would love to meet you!
Happy Cats will support you all along the way, with advice and equipment specifically tailored to everything we know about these two sweet girls. This is in addition to all our regular contribution, including their spays, vaccinations, microchips, food and litter and treats for 3 months, and a free well-kitty checkup to help you get started with one of our partner vets.
