Luke and Leia
Luke is a rather special boy. Named after that famous Star Wars hero, he’s a very spry 10 year old who was adopted as a kitten along with his sister Leia. A new member of his human family had a very severe immune response to the dynamic duo, which is why they are in a foster home now in search of a loving forever home where they can remain together.
Luke is incredibly affectionate and loves to get in as much lap time as you’ll offer. He’s a big fan of lying in the sun, and likes to play with cloth mice (ones with catnip are his favorite!) He believes in daily post meal siestas and frequently naps in a comfy spot of his choosing, either in a cat bed or on a corner of the sofa. When he stretches, his tail curls up like a monkey. So adorable!
An intrepid explorer, Luke can’t resist checking out new things, whether it’s a cool new box that was delivered or seeing what’s coming out of those grocery bags or getting to check out a closet. He’s an indoor kitty, but loves to look out the window or the front door to see what’s happening outside. He’s fascinated by birds.
Master Luke has a healthy appetite and seems to tap into his inner Labrador whenever food comes his way. He tries to beat his own speed eating record at every meal. And, to let you in on a little secret, he can be a bit of an opportunist when it comes to meat. He’s not shy about telling you how much he’d love to taste whatever you’re having, but if you let him know it’s not for him, he’ll eventually give up and watch…just in case you change your mind. Luke will greet you every morning with a verbal hello and then will quickly show you the way to the kitchen, just in case you forgot.
Luke can be a bit shy around strangers at first, but once he determines that they’re okay, he’ll come out and join the gathering. Especially if there’s food involved!
Meet Leia, who was named after that famous Star Wars Princess. Leia was adopted as a kitten with her brother Luke and after 10 years, a new member of her human family had a very severe immune response to Leia and Luke, which is why they are being fostered now and searching for a loving forever home where they can remain together.
Leia is reserved initially and takes a little time to get to know you. Once she feels comfortable and begins to show her love and affection, she will melt your heart. This little girl is incredibly lovable, and respectful of your space, and her own. She prefers to curl up next to you. But the better she gets to know you, the more likely she will decide that she wants to spend some time on your lap and she’ll curl up and sleep as long as you let her.
She has an adorable voice. It’s a very lady-like “mew.” She doesn’t speak often, but at times it seems like she’s trying to express how happy she is and how much she loves you. She’ll also provide gentle encouragement at meal time.
Leia is a slow eater, but if given the time, she’ll finish what you serve. And because her brother used to finish whatever she didn’t, once she walks out of the kitchen, she doesn’t usually go back. She will take some short breaks as she dines. Her preference is wet food and pate style is her favorite.
Leia loves to be brushed. Her fur is a bit dense so it’s helpful to do a daily brushing to avoid those unlady-like fur ball moments. She has a cat bed that she adores. And if it is near you, she’ll nap there for hours on end. She also likes to nap in cozy protected places, like in a corner behind some curtains or on the couch behind throw pillows or under a blanket during cooler weather. When something makes her nervous, those are her go to shelter spots, but her favorite is under a bed.
