I received a happy e-mail this morning about Dreamy and Whispurr:
As you know we have found a WONDERFUL home for Dreamy & Whispurr with two great people who are local (which is good ..we can see them any time we want) .. They have been involved in rescue for many years..they have had the girls for two weeks and have already gained their trust and they love them. We were so fortunate to find such wonderful new owners and the girls have been blessed to be in a warm and loving 2nd home.
Thank you for all you did to get the word out we are truly grateful to you and Rose Weber and your contacts.
God Bless you all for all you do.
Bob & Pattie Stanko
I thanked them for letting me know! I don’t always get to hear the follow-up, but I truly love a happy ending like this.
And I also thanked Bob and Pattie for taking in the girls unexpectedly, understanding their needs and being very careful with their new adoptive home, especially after their own loss of the human loved one who was Dreamy and Whispurr’s person.
As I said then, don’t dismiss a kitty because she’s older! I had five wonderful years with Peaches that felt like a lifetime, and these girls are two years younger than that.
Here’s a link to the original post: Two Senior Scottish Folds, Owner Died, Need Home
Two lovely 13-year-olds have lost their mom and need a home. Their person’s brother and sister-in-law are keeping them, but they have allergies in the household and other pets.
My Peaches and Cream came to me in much the same way—yes, that Peaches!
The girls need love and understanding after losing their mom and their home. Here is what their caretaker says of them:
“My sister-in-law recently passed away unexpectedly and she had two Scottish Folds cats that were her “babies” and are now in need of a loving home. They are two female litter mates (a couple weeks apart) who were with her since they were kittens and are now approximately 13 years old.
“They have been house cats all their lives and pretty much with her exclusively. They are current on their rabies shots and as far as we know they are in good health They are really in need of someone to love them. The grey one is Whispurr the white one is Dreamy. Our family is unable to keep them due to allergies and already having other animals.
“We did place them with someone in June but the person ended up not being patient enough, and did not keep them. They will need to be with someone who will understand what they have been through (loosing the only “Mommy” and home they ever knew). In other words, they need time to learn how to trust. They have never been apart nor around other animals.
“We have contacted all the agencies and they cannot help…they are all so overwhelmed. Please feel free to pass this info to anyone who may have room in their heart their lives to give these little girls a new home. My info is listed below. Thanks much!
“Please let us know if you can help…we are running out of time and options..we really don’t want to put them down.”
I have sent this to Scottish Fold Rescue, Inc., and am awaiting an answer, but if you can think of any options for these girls, please pass them along to their caretakers:
