Athena & Poe

Athena and Poe are two delightful, calm, tightly bonded best friends. They are great companion cats for any human who wants to hang out petting cats…one for each hand! They are Indoor only cats and both are about 1 ½ years old. Athena is a Golden Brown tabby with ticked fur (individual hairs in a tabby-patterned coat that may be banded with different colors) who will let you pet her all day, non-stop. Poe is a gorgeous medium hair black cat with some white areas who loves to head butt and get kisses on her head. She is a bit of a “flopper”-reach your hand to pet her and she’ll flop onto her side for scratchins.’ Both girls have perfect litter box manners, are spayed, have tested Negative for FeLV/FIV, have all vaccinations and are microchipped. Bring a carrier, or two and come and get them.

One of your cat's most beautiful features is her long and graceful tail. It curls around her body softly when she sleeps or sits or floats behind her when she walks, but it also functions as a marvelous part of her anatomy. About 10 percent of your cat's bones are in the tail – up to 20 vertebrae. These small bones are encased in muscles that allow finely graded movements, such as elevation of the tail its movement from side to side, and the lowering or curving of it around the body.

Your cat's tail is a barometer of her feelings. A high vertical tail is a sign of happiness. If that high tail quivers from the base up, it indicates that she is really happy and excited. If that tail goes in the opposite direction and is tucked between the legs, your cat is afraid or trying to avoid a confrontation. If she's agitated, she will wag her tail rapidly back and forth. This is a threatening signal to warn other cats (and you) to back off. On the other hand, a tail that waves back and forth slowly and gently indicates that your cat is relaxed and happy.

All animals adopted are spayed or neutered, have age-appropriate vaccinations and testing, and are microchipped (with registration). Cats are litter-box trained. $50 adoption fee for cats 2 or younger; $40 for cats over 2 or special needs.
