Spirit and Chilli are a super sweet, very bonded pair that adored each other from the moment they first met. From first entering into foster care, these two have been tied at the hip.

Spirit, a Dilute Orange Tabby with White male is approximately 3.5 years old.

Super laid back, he’s a go-with-the-flow kind of fellow. Loving humans and other cats alike, he enjoys affection wherever he can get it. Don’t let his laid-back style fool you, he’s a quirky guy who loves to play, and will prance around chasing after any wand toy and the sparkly pom toys! He’s not much for being picked up to pack around, but will come and stand on you while you’re sitting or laying, to demand chin scratches. He loves to curl up with his people and Chilli at bedtime, having perfected the art of foot warming.

Chilli (nicknamed Chill Chill) is a sleek black house panther female, approximately 3 years old.

With the help of Spirit, Chili was quick to learn humans meant shoulder scratches, yummy food, and the swinger of the flying feathers (feather wands). At night if she wasn’t draped over Spirit to sleep, she was laying across her foster mama’s feet, snuggled in with the kitty pile of Foster friends. Due to her lack of human contact in her early start of life, Chili can be nervous with new, people/things/experiences, letting Spirit take the lead to make sure it’s safe for her to cautiously investigate. Chilli will need patience as she learns about her new family and environment. She has 2 speeds, lazy sleepy mode, and mock chicken zooming mode. Her previous life taught her to dart from place to place, to minimize exposure.

Both love to be brushed, and playtime is the best time in their opinion!

Spirit and Chili are looking for a quieter home, with lesser foot traffic. Children would not be recommended. Both love the company of other laid-back cats, but dogs are an unknown.

Spirit and Chili have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated and have received preventative flea and worm treatments.

Spirit History Here

Chili started life very spicy and scared of everything but her instant best friend Spirit.  While she has learned things aren’t so scary anymore, she still has the habit of zooming from place to place, which if you’re not familiar with her antics, it can look like she’s fleeing in terror haha!
