Shelter Caturday - Molly and Lucky
Every Saturday we run a special feature on a rescue cat looking for a loving home. At the moment shelters and rescues seem to be overwhelmed with pairs of cats who have to be rehomed together - last week it was Romulus and Remus, the week before was Tic and Tac and this week it's Molly and her brother Lucky. They are both waiting for their forever home at the Preston branch of Cats Protection.
This dream team are Molly and Lucky, who came into Cats Protection's care because their owner could no longer look after them. They are both 14 years of age, and as a result Cats Protection would like them to be homed together, as they have never been apart.
Molly and Lucky were dirty and thin when they came into the shelter, but since then they have filled out nicely and have flourished since being moved to a foster home. Their foster says both cats are super laid back and affectionate. Lucky loves to sleep in the sun and at feeding time Molly won't eat until you've given her a good fuss. After spending some time in the foster home, their true personalities are beginnignt to shine through and the twi siblings often bicker like a married couple, although they are very close with one another.
It's a well known fact that black (as well as black & white) cats find it much more difficult to get adopted in shelters. Many cats find themselves losing out to their more colourful counterparts in the search for a forever home, even though they make wonderful companions. This is partially down to superstition and beliefs that cats are 'bad luck' - but how on earth could you look at these two beauties and think that?
As always at Cats Protection, you will get four weeks free health insurance if you adopt Molly and Lucky, which can be continued by you after this period. This way their age is less of a concern, as you will be gaurateed to get health insurance with them, which can sometimes prove tricky with older cats.
These sweet siblings do need access to a garden and could live with other cats, although they have not been tested with dogs or children, so would probably be best suited to a mature family. They will make an excellent addition to any household, and will provide you with much affection and gratitude in exchange for rescuing them.
