This week we are featuring a pair of Maine coon girls, mom Lilly and daughter Jazzy. Maine coons are large, long-haired cats who typically have friendly, calm personalities. These girls are perfect examples of the breed.
Lilly, a brown cat with white on her face and chest, is 9 years old and Jazzy, a mostly brown cat with a small amount of white on her chest, is 8. After having been rescued by a woman who heard they were going to be put down, these good tempered cats were brought to us. Eight to nine years old is only middle aged for cats; indoor cats often live to be 15 - 20 years and we hear frequently of cats that live into their twenties. Both Lilly and Jazzy are in good health, have been spayed, and are current with their shots. These cats love to sit in laps and are super affectionate. Lilly even gives people hugs. The two girls are closely bonded. Although in a suite with other cats, they often meet to rub noses or groom each other. So we will only adopt them as a pair but their lucky adopter will be getting two wonderful cats.
The shelter is located at 44 Beagle Lane in Teaticket. Adoption hours are Wednesdays from 4 to 6 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., or by appointment.
