Hello! My name is Mercury and I’ve been at the Pope Memorial Frontier Animal Shelter for well over a year. Oh, don’t get me wrong. It’s a great place really. It’s just that my friend Venus and I would really like to find our forever homes. We’re getting older – we’re at least 8 years old - and we’ve been through quite a bit. It’s possible that we’re sisters but no one really knows for sure. You see, before we came to the shelter, we lived with many many cats in a house where people couldn’t really take good care of us. So we know how lucky we are to have been brought to this wonderful shelter where we have plenty of food and clean water each day, and nice soft beds and a lot of friends to play with. And because we’ve been here so long, we’ve met so many other kitty friends, and we get along just fine with them. We can even get along with dogs! We’re a little bit sad though because all of our cat friends that came with us from that house have all found their forever homes and we’re still here. We just don’t know why someone doesn’t choose us to go home with them. Maybe it’s because we’re older, or because we don’t have teeth. But that doesn’t stop us from playing and cuddling and purring. And we eat any food you want to give us! Whether it’s soft canned food or crunchy dry kibble – we gobble it right down! We’re both quite pretty, I think. They call our coloring Tortoise Shell and we look quite unique. Won’t you consider taking one or both of us home with you? We don’t need to go together to the same home, but kitties are quite social creatures and we love having a friend. We’ll spend a lot of time just being happy to be with you. We’ll cuddle when you want to and then we’ll just play together and relax.
Better yet, come and spend some time with us at the shelter. You’ll see for yourself just how sweet we can be!
