Description:

BEEZUS & RAMONA are sweet girls named after sisters in the Beverly Cleary books. The girls have an adorable bond with each other. They pile up on your lap or chest and compete for your attention by purring and rubbing their faces on yours. They need to be adopted together.

The girls love playing with each other – running around, hiding, playing tag, and surprising each other. They also love running through their cat tunnels and climbing the cat tree. They don’t usually chase toys on their own but respond when their foster family plays with them. The girls are both a little timid with new people and in new surroundings, but have made amazing progress. At first they were cautious but very loving. Now they are confident, love to purr and seek the comfort of their foster family. Their personalities also complement each other perfectly.

BEEZUS is smaller and a bit shyer than her sister, Ramona. She has a cute white mustache which distinguishes her from her sister. Beezus loves to purr and purrs the loudest – louder than her sister!

RAMONA is bigger than Beezus and more confident. And while her sister purrs the loudest, Ramona purrs first!

Beezus and Ramona need a calm, patient caretaker who will give them a little time to adapt to change. Their home also needs to be quiet and without young children now or in the future. A home with an older child would be fine. They are very affectionate and need a home where they will get plenty of attention, playtime and snuggling.

These girls came into our care after having lived their first few months outdoors. Their friendly mom cat was literally dumped on the side of a shopping center near a wooded area when she was pregnant. It's incomprehensible to us why someone would do this. A kind person saw this happen, started feeding the female cat, and later her kittens, until others began noticing them living outdoors. Luckily, the mom and kittens were rescued and by the time someone contacted SPCA for help, only these two girls still needed a home.
