Meet Wunder And Marzipan
Hey guys! I’m Wunder!
My sister Marzipan 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 lots of play time, and my sister can be won over with tuna and cheek scratches!
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 we are both very brave as we take snacks right from peoples hands and after just a few cheek and chin scratches Marzipan will melt into your hand, knead her little paws and purrrrrrr!! I love all things food as well and will happily take food from people, but I am still a bit nervous with touch, I LOVE playing though! I think my sister is really cute because when she stretches and yawns she sometimes forgets to put her tongue back in and walks around with a little tongue blep!
We love curling up together for a cat nap in a cozy box or bed, and we can often be seen grooming each other!
Marzipan 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 Mars and I seem like a good fit for you, please follow the steps below!
