We are a pair of kittens around 4 months old who, after many hours of TLC from foster parents and several trips to SCAA’s vet partner PAW, are now as beautiful on the outside as we always were on the inside! We’re happy and social kitties and lived up to our tough-as-nails namesake with our stubborn determination to overcome an itchy and contagious fungus.
Our rescuers spotted us outside a small restaurant when we were a month old. We were missing patches of fur from a common fungal infection (ringworm) and lacked basic care, including a proper diet and a safe, comfortable home. We looked like raggedy orphans.
Fully recovered after a little time and lots of effort we were pleased to be released from our isolation to lounge happily on each other, our foster parents, and even snuggle up to their reluctant cat Frankie. We’re so happy we can’t resist telling you at every opportunity. Yes, we like to chat – but at least not in the middle of the night!
Healthcare History: Treated for fleas (Revolution) and worms (Milbemax) and ringworm fungus (Malaseb shampoo and Itraconezole). We are vaccinated (Fel-O-Guard feline virus and rabies) at SCAA’s vet partner, PAW. Ready for spay/neuter at around 6 months old and SCAA subsidizes half the surgery cost at PAW for adopters.
Ideal Home: As growing older kittens, Thelma and Louise need to play and interact with other social animals (if they are not adopted as a pair) and with people. Active kittens with a strong mind of their own when it comes to rough play vs. gentle cuddle time, Thelma and Louise would do well in a home with older children, not toddlers. When it’s time to play, don’t interrupt them. When it’s time to cuddle, be ready!
Like the dynamic duo in the film world, Thelma and Louise make a great pair and are rarely apart any time day or night. In sync with each other and their people – the girls will each claim a lap when their foster parents are sitting at the table and if only one person is around and leaves themselves ‘vulnerable’ on the sofa or the bed, Louise will take your feet and Thelma will claim your chest. They’re twice the fun of one kitten but not twice the work.
