Misty & Shadow's Story
Why hello there, we are Shadow and Misty. Misty is quite shy, so I'll do the talking. I'm Shadow, the solid grey one, and my sister Misty is the tabby. We were surrendered to ARTS because we were living with small children and we really disliked having such a busy household. Now we are being fostered with just adults and we much prefer the slower pace. We've never lived with any other animals, but our old owners told the people at ARTS that we are good with dogs, so they might be okay. We've never lived with other cats, but our foster family isn't sure we'd like them very much, so a home without them is preferred.
We are very typical sisters, we don't really cuddle and we sometimes argue, but at the end of the day we love each other very much. We are friendly girls and will sit on your lap if you let us, although we don't always like sharing your lap with each other (a little sibling rivalry!). I am the cuddlier of the two sisters, but that's only because Misty is more timid. She will probably hide a lot when you first bring her home, but I promise she comes out of her shell with a little patience. Just be prepared to give it a few weeks, and don't be alarmed if she hides so well you think she's gone missing!
When Misty does come out she is really sweet and friendly. She loves pets and attention. However, she is afraid of kennels and trips, so it's important you handle her patiently and calmly when it's time to go to the vet. We are both pretty jumpy about loud noises - dropping things, or stomping around in work boots will send us scurrying!
We are good with our litterbox but we don't like being brushed, so that might be something you have to work on with us. Next time we are the vet she said she'll give us something called a shave, which doesn't sound fun!
After having the same home our whole lives, we are going to need someone who can help us adjust to a new environment. We promise to pay you back tenfold in love and big fluffy purrs. Are you the one to help us? Please apply here if you are.
