Cats for Adoption: Twinkle and Piglet
Twinkle and Piglet are not brother and sister but both of them have been through a lot and have the scars to show for it. In fact, both of these sweet 10-month-old kittens could be awarded medals for not only having survived ordeals, but having survived them with warm hearts and loving personalities intact. The female Twinkle (left) was rescued as a sick stray kitten with a cold so severe she lost one eye and only has partial sight in the other. The pure-white Piglet, a male with two different colored eyes, has a slight mobility disorder and difficulty walking straight. He had been forced into a tiny plastic box with his siblings and left on a mountainside in the dark of night until he was found and taken to the police. Still, not much slows these good friends down and their disabilities don’t interfere with their care in any way. Indeed, Piglet can get from point A to point B better than most salary-men on a Friday night. Twinkle and Piglet both love people, and Twinkle even plays with puppies. They need a special person who will keep them together and look past their disabilities to their pure natures and the love they have to give. Please give them a chance.
