Marlin and Luca were rescued a year ago. They had been left behind, in filthy conditions and without food and water, on a foreclosed property along with over 60 other hungry cats.
Luca was the first cat to be rescued. She was so hungry that, despite her shy nature, she hovered around our cars when we pulled up with food and quickly went into a live trap. Luca spent time in three different foster homes, where she lived with other cats and learned all about trusting people again—especially people with food. Luca loves her food!
Marlin, who often prefers to stay undercover, was unknown to volunteers until he turned up in one of the live traps we set in the living room of the foreclosed house. He was the only cat already neutered out of 60 we found on the property. Marlin was scared and had a big hiss, but you could tell he was a sweet, gentle, undemanding guy. Over the next few weeks, he was a comfort cat for many of the other cats we rescued from the property. You could always find a little girl cat—Little Turnip, Trix, Libby, or Luca—snuggled up with Marlin in his carrier. Marlin has always preferred sleeping in a carrier. Even in his foster home where Marlin came out to play, purr, and give head-butts to his foster people, Marlin liked to be able to retreat to the safety of his cat carrier.
Many of Marlin and Luca’s friends have already found loving homes, and Marlin and Luca are waiting for theirs at the Feline Rescue Adoption Center. Marlin and Luca will do great in a home with patient, understanding people. Feed them regular meals of yummy canned food to keep them healthy, and you will see them come out of their shells even faster. Here they were at playtime/snacktime with their buddy Trix (who's been adopted) in their foster home.
If you’re looking for a couple of cats that are sweet but quiet and that get along well with other cats, spend some time getting to know Marlin and Luca. Don’t judge them by how shy they are at the adoption center. Once Marlin and Luca get settled comfortably into a home, you will discover how sweet and entertaining they really are.
