Day 7 of the 12 Adoptable Pets of the Holiday Season - Montgomery & Molloy from the Annex Cat Rescue
Montgomery (Monty for short) is very curious and likes to follow, sit near and watch his foster parents. He has started to enjoy pets and brushing, and can be very silly, lying on his back with his feet in the air while playing with his toys. He is still very shy and nervous, but has started embracing gentle pets on his cheeks and back. Monty can be very silly, lying on his back with his feet in the air playing with his toys. He requires a patient and gentle adopter who is willing to spend time sitting with him, giving him treats, and letting him sniff their hand. His foster parents spend a lot of time talking to him in a gentle voice, this has really helped his confidence. Monty spends most of his day grooming his bonded buddy Molloy. He LOVES temptation treats and will almost eat them out of our hands.
Monty and Molloy grew up together in the same colony; they spend all their time together, sleeping, grooming, and wrestling with each other. They are a bonded pair and need to be adopted together!
They will require a patient adopter who has experience with street cats, who understands that it will take some time to open up. They need someone who has space in their home to give them a quiet place to adjust to a new environment, it can take a little while for street cats to open up and feel safe. These boys also require an adopter who has experience getting street cats into a cat carrier, as they do not enjoy being picked up.
Molloy is very playful and silly. He loves being brushed as well as pets and chin scratches. He spends most of his day trying to get Monty to groom him and lick his head. He adorably lays on his back with his feet in the air waiting for Monty to come over and groom him.
When his fosters first got Molloy he was very shy. Then he realized that they have treats and food and he embraced attention and pets. When it's dinner time he squeals in excitement or runs around our legs waiting for food :)
Molloy needs a patient adopter who is willing to spend time with him, and who will give him LOTS of love and attention! He loves pets, and likes to rub up against his foster parents so they keep petting him. He does have a nervous side and will give you a gentle swat (no claws) as a warning.
