Leo (Willie Nelson) & Thea (Dolly Parton)
We adopted these two beautiful & loving pair of kittens as they were hand raised together by the wonderful Rose and her mother. We were adding these two to our home that already had two rescued cats from the Wake County SPCA. These kittens have brought so much joy and love into our lives, especially after a tough year of COVID and my lower back fusion surgery. They have been the perfect recovery companions. When Rose says that these cats were held a lot and taught to be loving lap cats you can be assured they are! Leo plops down wherever he is for long naps, but when it’s play time he goes at 150%! Thea is such a vocal kitten. She announces herself when she enters a room. I can even tell by her different vocalizations if she is lonely looking for someone or just playing. Thea meets me every morning for coffee on the couch and climbs up on my chest and falls over under my chin to cuddle. Both kittens are happy to be held and walked around the house… it’s like having kids at the baby stage again. I find myself doing the baby “sway”. They have bonded with all of our family members and now even with the older grumpier cats are playing with them!
I can say that these are two very special kittens that amazingly found our family. If we were to ever add another pair of kittens, it would only be hand raised rescue kittens from Rose and her mom. Like a proud parent we have kept in touch with Rose and inundate her with tons of kitten photos! We look forward to reuniting the kittens with their first parent, Ms Rose once this COVID craziness ends. This has been the perfect match for our family and I can’t imagine our family without them! Thank you for saving these sweet kittens and enriching our family with their love!
