the Shoebox Kittens.
was a stray in North Minneapolis, captured for Trap-Neuter-Return. But
the garage where she took shelter burned and was not a safe place to
return. Plus, life is hard on the streets for a little cat like Pauline.
Volunteers could pet her and tell she was sweet, but she sat in a
kennel for a long time waiting for someone to give her a chance and take her home to foster.
in her foster home, Pauline continued to seem depressed. She was
healthy and ate well but was barely responsive to her foster mom's attempts
to interact and make her happy. Then along came Ivy.
Ivy and her
siblings Wilson and Pippi came to stay with Pauline for a couple days on
their way to another foster home. But when her siblings left, Ivy had
to stay behind for medical care, having succumbed to a bot-fly larvae in
her eye and a respiratory infection that took two weeks to clear up. Ivy
turned to Pauline for comfort. Pauline in turn began to blossom. She
protected and cuddled little Ivy. And Ivy taught Pauline to play.
that Ivy is back to being a healthy and energetic kitten, the two are bonded and would love to be adopted together.
Pauline is still shy with people, though she waits eagerly for food and
other positive interactions with her foster caregiver. Ivy is outgoing and just as loving with
people as she is with Pauline.
Adopting this pair together would be fun
and rewarding. They are just meant to be together. If you think they
might be meant for you too, contact Molly for more information: call
