2/1/2013 Checkers is now in cat Shack foster care with her brother Murphy. They are FeLV/FIV neg, up to date with their vaccines and have been recently vet-checked in good health.
This is what Murphy and Checker's owner had to say about the cats:
Checkers is a domestic short hair kitty and the sister to Murphy. As the companion to Murphy, she likes to sit back and watch him. She is very quite and likes to oversee what is going on in the house, finding the highest perch in the house and overlook what is happening. She loves to play in boxes, grocery bags and buckets... anything she can jump in and out of. She loves to play with balls as well and can get pretty wound up if she is doing well batting them around.
Also the cats are about 7 years old and siblings, the male is a tabby and is neutered and declawed. The Female is a tortoise and is spayed and declawed. They have been indoor cats from the beginning and are very nice cats, they run away rather then bite or scratch. We believe our 2 year old has some allergies to them, gets puffy eyes when he catches one and pets it.
I work from home and when he is at the sitters the cats come out and play and do cat things but when he comes home they run and hid from him because when he gets one he grabs it with both hands around the neck and lays on top of it. They then tend to bite/scratch and hid for a while tell he goes away.
I apologize for not mentioning this, because I didn't think it was pertinent information but now that I think about it they wouldn't be a good match for people with young children. I also really want them to go to a home and not a shelter because they are wimpy cats and I know they won't do well in one.
