Description:

NAMA & NALA are sweet, cuddly, and affectionate sisters. These girls were the only kittens of their litter and have never left each other’s side. They eagerly greet you at the door when you come home and are happy to have visitors. They are also quite happy to have a caretaker who works from home, seeking cuddles and connection time throughout the day! Nama & Nala let you know when it’s breakfast or dinner time, and especially love their nighttime treats. Their purrs are soft and sweet and both quietly visit you while you sleep and curl up nearby. They are a bonded pair and need to be adopted together.

NAMA (long-haired tuxedo) is smaller than her sister, Nala, with very soft fur. She loves to knead biscuits when it’s time for nap on a cushion close by. She has a curious and goofy personality and seeks out sunbeams coming into her home to recharge in the sun. Nama plays with her many catnip toys, and especially loves her mouse toy that she stalks and pounces on. She is carefree and enjoys being picked up and carried around. Nama also likes to gently lay a paw on your chin to get your attention.

NALA (short-haired tuxedo) has bright green eyes that are beautiful and sweet. She often sits next to you and waits patiently for petting and occasionally gives a little head bump on your elbow to initiate your petting. She doesn’t really like being picked up like her sister, but easily follows you or comes to you when called. Nala sits with you or next to you while you watch TV or work from home, often putting her front paws and chin on your leg to feel close.

Nama and Nala need a quiet forever home where they can bond with you. They love having cat trees for naps and windows for bird watching and letting the sun shine inside. Both kitties are very relaxed, entertain themselves, and are social and easy-going around visitors. They grew up with a gentle 50 pound adult dog as their big brother until he passed away this year. They are not use to high energy dogs though and haven’t been exposed to children. A family with an older child who is use to cats would be fine, but no babies or young children now or down the road.

They have always had a loving home. Sadly, their caretaker, who rescued them from outdoors as tiny four week old kittens, is facing significant life changes that include multiple moves in the future. She is concerned that multiple disruptions would be hard on the girls and is hoping to find them a new home that is peaceful, loving and stable (with no anticipated moves).
