Striking short-haired sisters in need of a good home

Meet Opal and Mittens
Opal and Mittens grew up in the same house and would very much like to stay together. People for Cats photo.

Opal and Mittens are two beautiful, exotic looking blue-eyed sisters that just came in to the shelter. They are half Siamese, with striking cream-colored coats overlain with very dilute tortoiseshell coloring. Opal is the paler of the two, while Mittens having a bit of black mixed into her coat is darker. They are short-haired, medium to large in size and 5 ½ years old.

Both girls are initially a bit shy, but they are real “love-bugs” if you spend a little bit of time getting to know them. Opal is the more outgoing of the two, readily head-butting for more pets and rubbing against volunteers to get attention. If one sits down with her she’ll start kneading and purring up a storm. Her only drawback is that she is a bit chubby and could afford to loose a little weight. Mittens is the more reserved of the two, but she is just as affectionate once she warms up to a person.

These two girls were surrendered to PFC because their owner had to go to a nursing home. Since they have always lived together, we would prefer to adopt them together to the same home. So if you are looking for a pair of sweet, affectionate, striking beauties these sisters may be just the kitties for you. They would probably do best in a quiet calm home, where they can get the attention and love they deserve.

If you would like to visit with these beautiful sisters, or one of our other equally sweet kitties, come in to the shelter at 44 Beagle Lane in Teaticket.
