Description:

DOBBIE, DASHER and DW are sweet, playful tabby brothers. They are a little shy with new people and need a patient caretaker who will give them a little time to settle in. They need feline companionship in their forever homes – Dobbie and Dasher are a pair and need to be adopted together. DW needs to be adopted along with a compatible male SPCA kitty or into a home with a young, friendly male cat who wants a buddy. These boys do great with other cats and absolutely adore their Big Brother 'Floof.' If you have a friendly adult male cat who loves other cats, these boys would bond with him in an instant.

DOBBIE (with beige spot on chest) has giant expressive eyes. He is the most outgoing and the boldest of the brothers. He is the first to investigate new surroundings and to get use to new people. When rescued, he looked so much like "Dobbie the House Elf" from Harry Potter that his rescuer gave him that name. Dobbie loves treats and is the first to run over for food in the morning. He adores chin scratches and petting, and meows until he gets them. Dobbie is an energetic young kitten and likes to rough house with his brothers. Dobbie must be adopted with his brother Dasher.

DASHER (darkest in color and smallest) is the sweetest little tabby with beautiful green eyes. After needing a couple of days to warm up to you, Dasher crawls into your lap and demands all your petting and attention. He is the best of the trio at cuddling and has the biggest purr! Dasher loves spring toys and entertains himself for hours chasing one around. After he's done cuddling, Dasher loves to play with his brothers, even though he's quite a bit smaller than they are. Dasher must be adopted with his brother Dobbie.

DW (biggest of the trio) is long and lean and loves to take naps belly up in the air. He loves to play, play and play and is good at entertaining himself. He has an independent streak and is good at investigating new and interesting things to make sure his brothers are safe. DW's favorite toys are long fabric string toys he plays with endlessly. DW is still learning to like being petted and cuddled so he needs someone with patience to show him the magic of a good chin scratch. DW must be adopted with a compatible SPCA male kitty or into a home with a young male cat to bond with.

These boys need quiet homes without young children, or dogs, now or in the future. They also need experienced cat caretakers who know how to make kittens who are still a little timid feel safe and acclimate to a new environment. They all do great with a friendly male cat in their home who they can bond with like a big brother.

These boys were found huddled together under some trees along 4 Mile Run. The person who found them, Denise, heard meowing from the woods as she walked by, so she meowed back. Seconds later Dobbie came bolting out to investigate. It took a little coaxing with beef jerky, but he was easy to pick up. The other brothers were coaxed out a little later with canned cat food Denise got from a store nearby. Once in our care, it was clear these precious boys were dumped in the park to fend for themselves. Who would do such a cruel thing? Now safely in our care, these boys are waiting for loving forever homes.
