OLM Pet of the Week- Meet Pin and Pip

For this week's OLM Pet of the Week we're excited to introduce you to two adorable siblings Pin and Pip! Pin and her brother Pip were born last fall in a small feral cat colony. The siblings are a bonded pair who are looking for a forever home together through Cat Rescue Network.

Since they were born in the wild to a feral mother, the siblings were very fearful of humans and were often difficult to spot. Through regular feedings, gently playing with them and a LOT of patience, their trust in humans was slowly developed. Once temperatures started decreasing, their rescuer one day opened the door to their warm apartment and waited. After about half an hour of indecisive lingering, both Pip and Pin came marching into the apartment as if were theirs and they'd always been there!

Both look quite similar to each other and can only really be told apart when they're snuggled next to each other- which they often are. Pin is the more slender of the two, as well as the more adventurous one. Both are very playful and affectionate with their foster mother and get along with the other cats in their home. They are still shy however around small children and initially shy around strangers, but they consider older children as the perfect playmates! Both can also be picked up and held without too much of a fuss.

Pip and Pin are deeply bonded and do everything together from snuggling to playing with toys. Their ideal home is one where they can continue to be together for the rest of their lives. They can both be found on Petfinder for more details. If you have room in your heart and home for these two cuties, you can download an adoption contract here, and email it to flora_louise@yahoo.ca.
