Justin and I will be putting our house on the market in the next few weeks in preparation of moving into the 2nd floor of our building. As we will be moving into a smaller, 2 bedroom apartment, we are looking to find a family or two to adopt our cats, Storm and Norm. While this certainly wasn’t an easy decision, we both agree it will be better for the cats and us in the long run, as many of our friends and family are allergic to cats and can’t really visit us now. While the cats are very comfortable with each other, they are not related, and would not need to go to the same home. We are not looking to sell them, and we’ll include litter and a box, food, etc with each of them.
Storm is a female domestic shorthair (fixed, all shots up-to-date), is about 5 years old and is a chunker – about 16 lbs. She has both her front and back claws, though she is very good about using her scratching pad and hasn’t torn up any of our furniture. She is very good about using the litterbox, as we’ve never had a problem with her going anywhere else. She is very laid back, and is very comfortable with dogs, other cats and older children. While mostly a lazy sleeper, she does have a playful side. She loves having her face scratched, and likes to be around others.
Norm is a male domestic short hair (fixed, and all shots up-to-date), about 6 years old and weighs about 8 pounds. He has had his front paws declawed. Norm is a bit of a sensitive, quiet little cat. He can be very affectionate and loves attention, but is a bit skittish around small children, or anything that makes too much noise (he won’t be in the same room when we watch movies). He is pickier than Storm in regards to the litterbox, as it needs to be scooped and changed regularly and must be a certain kind (scooped once a week, changed every other week, thankfully the brand is a cheaper Target brand). He loves to run and chase around the house. We had him before Storm, and it took about a week for him to adjust to her.
Both Storm & Norm are indoor cats, and have only ever been outside within our fenced-in yard for less than an hour at a time. We would prefer for them to go to homes where they will be taken care of inside.
If you are interested in meeting and/or adopting one or both of our kitties, please contact us as soon as possible (email me at juliebgasper(at)yahoo(dot)com or leave a comment). We hope to put the house on the market mid-September, and have Storm and Norm in their new homes by then. Please feel free to pass on this post to any friends or family who you think would be interested in adding a cat to their family!
