Meet Marzipan And Wunder
Hey guys! I’m Marzipan!
My sister Wunder and I had a pretty rough start to life, but we are so so ready to find our forever homes! We love the staff here at the shelter, but we do really want a home to call our own!
We are both shy little ladies who take some time to warm up, I can be won over with tuna and cheek scratches, and my sister can be won over with tuna and play time!
The perfect home for us would be one that is quiet, patient and understanding, and willing to work with us to continue the socialization work the shelter has been doing with us. We are making really great progress!! A home with no small children would be best too, because loud noises and fast movements scares us! People with previous experience with under socialized kitties like us would be amazing!
The people here say that I am very brave as I take snacks right from peoples hands and after just a few cheek and chin scratches I will melt into your hand, knead my little paws and purrrrrrr!! Wunder loves food as well and will happily take food from people, but she is still a bit nervous with touch, she LOVES playing though! I think my sister is really cute because her little tongue sticks out of her mouth sometimes like she forgot to put it back in! Wunder loves wand toys and jingle balls especially.
We love curling up together for a cat nap in a cozy box or bed, and we can often be seen grooming each other!
Wunder and I do need to go to a home with no other cats, because we tested positive for Calici Virus, an upper respiratory virus that is contagious to other cats. In times of stress and anxiety this may flare up and we might get a bit of a cold, but usually this does not affect us! We also need to be kept as indoor only kitties so that we do not spread this virus around to any cats in the neighborhood!
If Wunder and I seem like a good fit for you, please follow the steps below!
