Gabe and Spruce love each other and all people! These boys are a bonded pair and must be adopted together - and they'll make you so glad you did!
Spruce (Russian Blue mix) may seem shy at first and takes a little longer to adjust, but once he does, he is truly the most loving cat around. He wants to get petted and head bonk you all evening, and enjoys sleeping with you too! He can't get enough affection, and would make a great therapy pet for a shy person. Sprucey has some playful energy too, but he's pretty laid back overall.
Gabe (gray tabby) is a big guy and enjoys belly rubs! Despite his size he's fairly active and loves to play (a lot of that chub is actually muscle!) Gabe LOVES catnip and is so cute when he finds some - unlike some cats where they get spazzy, he just relaxes and rubs all over it!
Both cats are super gentle and never lash out in any way. They could live with kids as long as they were on the quieter side - Spruce gets spooked by sudden loud noises. They would do best as the only cats in their new home (though they live with a few other foster cats and do OK with them). They haven't been around dogs.
These boys need to find a new home because their owner has passed away. They were very well loved house cats!

PAWS is dedicated to saving the lives of Philadelphia's homeless, abandoned and unwanted animals and is working to make Philadelphia a city in which every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home.
