Our Reno Shelter received two bonded cats one day, a tuxedo and a torbie. These two fabulous female felines were named Blake and Mercy respectively. After their clinic visit, both cats’ FELV tests came back positive which meant they needed to have separate areas from the unaffected cats.
In their new space, Blake and Mercy struggled with the isolation and longingly watched lots of people pass them up for other cats. Their shyness would slowly melt away with certain members of our Cat Staff, though. We even were able to feature them on a Pet of the Week Segment on KOLO 8 News with Rebecca Kitchen!
Their debut on the news was enough to get the attention of Terry and Mike, their adopters. Seeing the two cats on the news was enough for them to tail it to our Reno Shelter and adopt the bonded pair.
Now living in a happy home, Mercy has been renamed to Jodie, and Blake is now Heidi.
“They are both settled in now, with Heidi having taken a bit longer to relax and trust. It’s been a thrill seeing her slowly emerge to a curious, playful kitty. Jodie was “at home” almost immediately. The girls have a special bond and it’s fun to watch when they get the crazies with one another.” – Terry
