Animal Bio:

Isis is a sweet and active indoor cat. She would do best as an only pet. Since she can be shy and a bit skittish, a child-free home would be ideal. She loves little stuffed animals (especially if you fill them with catnip), running on her wheel (which is yours if you’d like it), and fuzzy blankets, and has been known to sit back and watch TV — especially if there’s another cat on the screen. She may take some time to warm up to strangers… if you show her patience and love, she makes the wait worthwhile.

Animal Bio:

Otis is legendary. He’s a big boy with an equally big personality, heart, and purr. He forgets his size sometimes and wants to be a lap cat. He’s an indoor cat, though with a harness on he loves supervised time outside. He’s good with kids and some small dogs… but isn’t so sure about large dogs and other cats.
