This month’s Adoptable Pets from Second Chance Animal Aid
Name: Chico (ginger male) and Miezi (white Calico female)
Age: 6 months
Health: Treated for fleas, mites, worms, ringworm (a common fungus), vaccinated, and spayed/neutered. All SCAA animals receive generously discounted international-standard PAW vet care.
Ideal Home: These two outgoing and affectionate cats would be ideal for any home with enough time to give them cuddles, heads rubs and a lap or two to cuddle up to. Friendly and youthful, these curious older kittens would be good with kids.
Although they are not siblings, Chico and Miezi share a strong bond, having been rescued as tiny kittens in need of care and introduced to each other in their foster home months ago.
Chico was a wee patch of ginger fur mewing pitifully in a busy downtown park when he caught his rescuer’s eye (or should we say ear?). Chico is one of those rare cats that enjoys being carried around like a baby. Hold him in your arms and he’ll lay his head on your shoulder, after rubbing his face against yours, and purr away like a motor. At less than 5 kilos he’s at least not too heavy to carry (for now!). When Chico isn’t smothering foster parents or Miezi with attention he’s busy playing fetch with his toys.
Miezi was rescued at an even younger age. Found all by herself on the street outside another downtown park (there’s a pattern here…) weighing barely 400 grams and in need of a little bottle feeding before taking to soft food, Miezi was snapped up by an eager cat lover who soon found the task of raising a baby too daunting – something we’re sure a few people can relate to! Since she was placed in SCAA foster care, Miezi has grown up to be a confident and curious kitten who enjoys people and other pets alike . She is especially tolerant of her fellow foster cat mates grooming her and occasionally trying to use her as a pillow. Her foster parents describe her as “a sweetheart” who oddly enjoys being (gently) pinned down when snuggling with you.
Chico and Miezi would be an ideal pair of cats to keep each other company during working hours and would each fit in well as a new addition to a pet-friendly family.
