The Odd Couple

Meet Richelle and Holly! Richelle is the round-faced tortie and Holly is the sharp-dressed tuxedo cat.

Holly became my foster kitten just before Christmas, so that's how she got her name. She was found all alone in the middle of nowhere. A nice young man found her and took her to his local Animal Control, but he was panicked when he found out she would be euthanized if she wasn't claimed. He called Feline Rescue and I went to get her. She is a very shy kitty, so she has been living in my bedroom isolated from the other cats. She is smart and playful and very cute.

Richelle (or Rikki) came along a couple of months later. She was found as a stray in the city and friendly as could be, but she is also living in my bedroom because my resident cats decided that they liked to pick on her. Living on the streets was tough on her. She had terrible ear mites and had scratched her right ear until it was bloodied. The mites are long gone, but that ear still turns out a little giving her some extra personality.

I wasn't sure how this roommate situation would work out for Holly, but over time they have become great friends. They play together like mad which keeps Holly happy and Rikki gets to mother Holly which keeps Rikki happy. They sleep together in their little bed at night. I think it looks like a little boat with them snuggled up so comfy.

I'd love to see them go to a home together since they have this special bond, but the adopters would have to understand that Holly may never be a lap cat. Rikki, on the other hand, LOVES all the attention and petting and cuddling she can get.

Please consider adopting this special pair!
