BONDED MOTHER AND DAUGHTER   ***Update**The Girls are doing GREAT in a foster home- Relaxed and hanging out in the cat trees-waiting for their new Mom/Dad to come get them****   Please call the shelter at 423-442-1015 to arrange a meet & greet or…after hours send a message via Facebook to TN Monroe County Animal Shelter.   They will be adopted together as they are VERY bonded. Calico girls Delilah (10) and Allie (Dilute Calico) (9) are in a pickle. Their owner has passed away and they were scared and confused. A little history: ten years ago, Delilah showed up at a home in CA….8-9 months old and VERY pregnant. A kind soul took her in and in a matter of days she gave birth to 4 kittens 2 survived. Often, kittens giving birth don’t have a lot of survivors. One was Allie and the other one was Jimmy (an orange boy (neutered), who is still living in CA). They girls were spayed, adopted together to a friend and transported home to MA. A few years ago the girls retired with their dad to Vonore. Unfortunately, Dad recently passed away and left the girls as orphans.   Delilah and Allie (INDOOR Only) were pretty nervous in the shelter-they had lost their human and their home and now they were no longer “free roaming” in a house-their world was upside down.… None of us like “world-rocking” change….they are now doing great in a foster home. DE-Lilah is DE-Lightful!...she greets people and is a “flopper cat” when you start to pet her…and then her purr motor kicks in…. Allie is a bit shy but it only took a short time back in a home, for her to relax and enjoy human contact again.  She is a bit more reserved than her mom and enjoys her “power nap” time. She is more active, playful and affectionate in the mornings and evenings. At power nap time they both like to sleep in their “cave” made up of pillows and a blanket over the top and sides, it’s nice & warm in there and cats love warmth.….be sure to reach in often and pet them-they love it! The girls need a quiet household with stability to feel comfortable again. We recommend a home with no young children (kids move a bit faster than the girls are used to). Delilah and Allie are very clean princesses and they (as all cats) do require clean litter boxes. “Cat Rule of Thumb” At least one litter box per cat (preferably, 1 more than the number of cats) and should be scooped twice per day for all cats. Some cats will not use a dirty litter box-just a cat fact. They do need high-sided litter boxes and they (2) WILL be provided to the adopter.      They’ll need a bit of time (took about 5 days in the foster home) in a room in their new home (see above for cave “construction”) where they can adjust (again!) temporarily. Delilah and Allie have always loved hanging out in a catio or screened in porch…fresh air makes them very happy. Can you offer these girls a loving, comfortable, safe home for their continuing retirement? Both appear to be in good health. They are spayed, tested Negative, current on vaccinations, microchipped and current on flea/heartworm preventive (Revolution).   Please visit this pet at our shelter this week. We are located just behind the Wal-Mart on Hwy 411 in Madisonville TN. Tues - Friday 11:00-4:30  Sat 11:00-2:00 Closed Sunday and Monday (423) 442-1015  $95.00 adoption fee for dogs and puppies include spaying/neutering, first shots, a microchip and ID tag for all dogs and puppies.  Please visit our web site at  or see our animals on mmmmmmmmmmmmm
