Muffin (and "Sister" Sandy) Want a Warm and Loving Home!
In July 2011, five tiny kittens were left outside Beethoven on Leninsky in a cardboard box. They were taken into the store and given a temporary, albeit very hot (almost no ventilation) home in the small critters section. I went back for three days, and on three day (two kittens had by then been adopted), I couldn't look at the three poor remaining babies suffering in their little glass enclosure anymore and took them home. They looked hot, sick and exhausted ...
The kittens were just over a month old (most likely, no one knows for sure and as it turns out, they cannot possibly be related, more on that below). They quickly made themselves at home at my place and received initial veterinary checks and worming medication. One kitten (Tasha - she was adopted in September 2011) was significantly larger than the other two - Muffin (a little brownish fur ball) and Sandy (grayish, at that stage it was very difficult to accurately describe their color). A few weeks after I picked them up, Muffin got very ill with a virus. Whether she caught it from foster kitten Tariq or vice versa I don't know, but they were both very ill, but thanks to the excellent care they received from our vets at Movet, both survived after a week of touch-and-go. Tasha and Sandy never got sick in the first place, so Muffin and Tariq spent some time in isolation in my bedroom.
As mentioned above, Tasha was adopted quite quickly, but no one wanted kittens this past summer so Muffin and Sandy stayed and I still have them. As she started growing, it became clear that Muffin is at least 90% Burmese (if not pure-bred), and Sandy is a typical British Shorthair or possibly a Chartreux! Muffin's fur color is brown, and this color does not occur in nature/stray cats at all. She does have a small lighter spot of hair on her chest, so this may have been the reason why she was given away or deemed "not sellable". No one has been able to figure out what could possibly have been wrong with Sandy - she is perfect and has the typical British build and beautiful fur color.
Even though Muffin and Sandy cannot possibly be real sisters, they grew up together. They sleep together, eat together, play together and would love to go to the same home, preferably one with no young children since they are a bit wary of strangers and noises. Both Muffin and Sandy are loving, cuddly, playful, litter box trained and know everything seven-month-old kitten girls should now! But they will not come to you right away - they both will need some time to get used to their new surroundings, but once that has happened, they will love you! Both girls love sleeping in a bunch with other cats, and they adore the bedroom :-)
Muffin and Sandy are fully vaccinated, have been neutered, have micro chips and veterinary passports.
