Taffy and Gumdrop's Personalities

Taffy and Gumdrop are not siblings but have lived together for most of their lives. Both cats are VERY loving and affectionate with people, and adore being petted and cuddled by their foster parents. They are also both VERY playful, spending hours playing and chasing each other. They are a great pair and need to be adopted together.

TAFFY (grey tabby) is a tiny girl with an outgoing and confident personality. She is very affectionate and loves to be petted, but also has an independent streak. Taffy is curious and immediately explores her surroundings, adapts quickly to changes and to new people. She often sleeps at the foot of her foster parents' bed at night. And while she is tiny, Taffy is also very energetic. She finally gets to be a kitten after rearing two litters (her second litter, Lollipop, JellyBelly, BonBon/JuniorMint, are posted separately). Taffy is a great mom and is a good companion for her buddy, Gumdrop, who is much more timid.

GUMDROP (brown tabby) is quite a bit bigger than Taffy with a loving but timid personality. He is quite shy at first with new people and in new surroundings. But his desire for love and affection pushes him toward overcoming his shyness to bond with his caretakers. Gumdrop quickly bonded with his foster mom and now follows both his foster parents around their home. He is more needy than Taffy – he always wants to be in the same room with you or with Taffy. Otherwise, he calls out for company. Gumdrop sleeps cuddled up with his foster mom every night.

What Type of Home They Need

Taffy and Gumdrop need a home where people are around to give them attention. They are use to both foster parents being at home during the day either working or in and out. They also need a quiet home because of Gumdrop's shyness. No dogs or young children now or in the future. An older cat-savvy child who knows how to be gentle with a shyer cat would be fine.

Where They Came From

Taffy and Gumdrop's caretaker became ill and could no longer care for them. We took Taffy, Gumdrop and their four kittens into our care when the kittens were only 3 1/2 weeks old. Taffy and Gumdrop were separated into different foster homes for a couple of months until the kittens were weaned and have now been reunited.
