Katie & Lulu urgently needs a foster home
Why is fostering needed?
During the past few months, I have been in alcoholic recovery and currently living in a Sober House that does not allow cats. It will be more than 4 or more months before I can take them back, and few foster homes will accommodate that type of homing. I am running out of options, and in a loving foster home together rather than leave them in a rescue kennel.
How long is fostering needed for?
A few months
Katie & Lulu – litter sisters
Katie is a black and white “Tuxedo” cat. She has no distinguishing marks, other than being a typical tuxedo. She is lovable and always looks like she’s waiting for you to ask her a question.
Lulu is a white cat, with several large black spots, with a grey-stripped tail. One of her upper canines was pulled when she was little (it was growing outward rather than down) so occasionally, the upper lip gets caught on the bottom tooth, and she looks a bit like a goofy Elvis.
The kitties are shy, but once they know you, they are very loving. They love to lay on out-stretched legs or in a blanket beside you… but really, any place could work.
Once Katie has accepted you, she will cuddle beside you, or on your chest to make biscuits. If you’re sick, she will curl up where she can see you, to ensure you rest and feel better.
Occasionally Lulu will act as if she doesn’t hear you or see things. Her vision and hearing are fine, she just has a quirky and loving personality.
They are both curious but will size up the situation and noise first before joining a room. Once they’re sure it’s okay, they will come out and greet most people, then sit and watch what’s going on.
When ready to play, they like to play by batting at dangling ribbons and strings or chase them along the ground. And of course, they love to chase shiny reflections and best of all red laser dots.
Their favorite word is “OK” – it has always meant that food is ready! It’s how we called Katie and Lulu for meals.
They grew up as indoor cats, with excursions into the 6’ high fenced backyard. They were not allowed beyond the fence. They loved it when it was warm outside and not too wet, sleeping in the grass, on chairs, in the sun. In the winter, they would love it if we made paths in the snow so they could explore a little bit – but mostly, they were satisfied to sniff the cold air from the back door, then turn around and find the nearest heat vent for a nap.
They have not lived with other cats, dogs, children, or more than two people in the house, so it will likely take time for them to adjust.
They are litter mates and have spent their entire lives together, so it’s essential they are rehomed together.
During the past few months, I have been in alcoholic recovery and currently living in a Sober House that does not allow cats. It will be more than 4 or more months before I can take them back, and I am running out of options. I feel it is kinder to place them in a loving foster home together rather than leave them in a rescue kennel.
