Peter & Tinsel The Odd Couple



Peter and Tinsel are not brothers, but became bonded so quickly, they now seem like brothers.  Peter went into foster care after coming into the shelter covered in used cooking oil.  The thought was he was so hungry he was going for a meal of anything and fell in.  Five baths later he still smelled a bit like a French fry.  He was fearful of new things and people coming at him, but did not mind being held and patted.    It was thought that having a feline companion would help him come out of his shell, and so Tinsel came off the adoption floor and went into foster care. 

Immediately Tinsel was very good to Peter.  He took on the roll of big brother, playmate and friend and took delight in the job.  He pushed Peter out of his comfort zone when needed, and even knew when to back off and let Peter figure things out for himself.   With his new friend Peter blossomed and started seeking out the attention he so craved.  Both Peter and Tinsel are lap kitties, but Tinsel is much more so.   Peter is still cautious in new environments and will take some time to adjust to his new home once adopted.  It would be best if you set them up in one room for a few days to let them adjust to their new home.  Because of Peter’s nature, it would be best if they were to be indoor only kitties.

They went up for adoption  at the beginning of the year, but the right home did not come along.  After being available for a while, both came down with “URI” and needed to go on medication for 10 days.  Both responded well to the medication and got over their cold quickly.  Both of them also had a bit of a reaction (a little swelling) to the vaccine they were given.  This should be mentioned to their vet.

They are a lot of fun, love to play, LOVE to snuggle, and are very good kitties.  They have been eating a mixture of canned and dry food, and been using scoopable litter.

They are in Southern Maine, and currently up for adoption at a local PetSmart.

  3. I posted this on Facebook and Twitter. (No response from my efforts, but I'm a bit farther away in VA.) I bet Connie would LOVE it if you'd also post on Facebook (especially since you live in the NE).
