Name: Alice Age: 4 mos Reason for surrender: stray Animal ID#: A31850305
I'm currently fostering two kittens who are now fully vetted and ready for adoption. Since coming into my care, they've definitely become bonded, so they should probably be adopted as a pair. Here is some information about them:
A31850318 aka Janet is a black female. She is very curious, and sometimes rather mischievous. She is very confident with her jumping and climbing skills and I often find her in places she shouldn't be (e.g. hanging from the edge of the fish tank by her little paws, inside of an armoire, or climbing a radiator cover) Although she is very confident individually, she seems to submit to her sister when it comes to who eats first and who gets first choice of the toys. That's not to say that they don't get along, of course they do -- they're bonded. Alice just seems to be the alpha.
A31850305 aka Alice is a white female with some black markings. She, too, is very curious, but doesn't seem to get into quite as much trouble as her sister. She's a little less confident when it comes to jumping onto high surfaces, but she always wants to follow Janet on her adventures. Alice is quite the snuggle bug and makes herself right at home if she catches you napping on the couch, often batting at your hands to get you to pet her. She also loves to eat. She's the first one to the food as soon as she hears me open a can or top off the kibble (no matter how far away she might be) and will hug my leg while she waits for me to prepare her breakfast or dinner.
As far as the two of them together go, they get along wonderfully. They're very vocally communicative with one another, especially when one isn't sure where the other is or when they're chasing each other full speed down the hallway. Being kittens, they LOVE to play. More often, they're playing together, but they also give each other space to play and explore alone from time to time. They're also obsessed with their canine foster siblings (Janet, especially). Dog tails are very interesting toys to them.
I'm not exactly sure how old they are, but I've had them since mid-June when they were much too tiny to be spayed.
I've attached a few pictures of them both, and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
