Two Winston-Salem Cats In Need of A Fur-Ever Home

These 2 beautiful cats are in need of a loving home.  They are obviously attached and need to be together.  The Siamese is named Sambo & the DSH white is named PT.  Believe they are 5 years old.  Kernersville vet can verify age & that vaccines, etc. are current.  Family may be able to help with cost if not current.  They are indoor kitties who have had access to a porch, but have probably never touched grass.  They have not been around other cats or young children.  They have only seen 1 small dog that used to come with visitors.  The family may be able to help with transport.

Below is the e-mail from the woman taking care of the cats (it came to someone in my area rescue group). If interested, please contact me and I'll put you in touch with this family. C'mon folks! Let's keep these best friends together and find these kitties a good home for the New Year!

My uncle died in June 2010 and his wife, my aunt, died December 2010.  They had 2 cats that I'm trying to find homes for.  Currently, they are still at my aunt and uncle's house, and my mom and dad are going over twice a day to feed, water, and clean out their litter boxes.  However, we can't keep them, and the house will ultimately be sold.  We already have a dog, and my mom says that's all she can manage on a permanent basis. 
One cat is a Balinese male and the other looks like a white Persian and is a female.  The female originally came from a shelter.  Both have been spayed and/or neutered, but they still have their claws.  All of their shots are current, and I can provide vet records if needed. 


Any help and/or information that you can provide will greatly be appreciated.  Thank you very much.

Perhaps Medication Would Help

Today's blog post is more for my benefit than yours. I don't know if we're in some weird phase of the moon or if perhaps latent ADD has kicked in, but scattered is the only word to describe my mental processes these days. I have an abundance of "stuff" begging to be checked off the list but I'm paddling with one oar and going in circles. I thought maybe taking a little breather to just sit back and list what needs to happen in my life might calm me down and provide a little focus.

Okay, all of the above needs to happen before Thursday at 2:30 PM. After that, I'm gone to Blue Ridge to test my legs against some hills. Thanks for letting me vent. I feel calmer seeing it all written out. Now it's just a matter of focusing and going down the list one by one, until everything is done. 

Deep breaths,
