Looking for Home Sweet Home

A day late and a dollar short, that's me, but that won't stop my introducing some kitties in Fairfax, Virginia whose situation was brought up by Maine Coon Cat Rescue. I'm a proud member of that group since I was once a stray myself.

It was Black Cat Appreciation Day a few days ago and we missed it, but we want to tip our hats to a couple of beauties: the cutest, most adorable black furries ever:




While we're waiting for them to turn around and say hello, we want to introduce Sparky, a member of the black cat family.

He's a kitty just a kibble more handsome than I am at 5 years old. He's checking on his looks in the mirror just like I do, making sure they're still there. He was only 2 months old when he was left behind and found his home.




Now, we have the cute Sweet Pea, daughter to Peanut. Sorry, turns out mumsy's a bit camera shy.


Their dad, father to Sparky, too, has to give them up and he is heartbroken. He has to be out of his apartment by August 26th and would like to find homes for them by then. He rescued Peanut and Sweet Pea at an RV campground when the owner of the place said he would catch them (they were feral) and have them put down. That was a year and a half ago. Peanut, the mother, is 3 and Sweet Pea is 2. They both have their shots and are spayed. Sparky, too, has all his shots and is neutered. They have been kept indoors.

Their temperament? Sparky is a lovebug, but can be aggressive when he plays. Sweet Pea is shy until she gets to know you, and Peanut, is a sweetheart.

If you know anyone who would like to adopt them, keeping the mother and daughter together if possible, please email us.

Thanks a bunch!

Hi Tom (and Julie)!
We got our mom to e-mail her sister and niece who live near Fairfax so they could put this on their Facebook. We're sending all three kitties many purrs.

OMC, this is another family where the kitties have to go away. We are so sorry. We wish we could do something, but we just can't fix anything.
