Lady Kitties in Need of Home - 2 genteel, attractive, mature (spayed)lady felines seeking full time accommodation. We enjoy peaceful, indoor lodging as napping is our preferred past time. Although we do venture outside for reasonable periods of time if the grounds are safe and secure, we do not like being left outdoors at night. We wish for a n/s, pet free environment without rambunctious annoyances. Our needs are simple; fresh water, dry cat food and a bedtime snack ("Temptations" is our favorite). We especially appreciate being brushed regularly and having a daily cleaned litter box of "Scoop Away" available, discreetly placed. We display affection when our needs are met. We require normal health care and can provide a medical history. Qualified, serious inquiries, please. 612-142-1359
