Blue and Oreo are two bonded boys looking for their forever home. They first came to Golden Oldies in September 2020 when their guardians could no longer care for them. They were adopted in October but unfortunately returned to us this April when their human family unit dissolved.
Blue is a 9-year-old short-haired orange tabby. Oreo is an 8-year-old long-haired gray and white tabby. Both boys love to lounge around on the couch or in bed with or without their humans.
They are indoor only cats who have eaten a dry-food-only diet. They have perfect litter-box manners.
Blue got his name because when he was a kitten he needed a bath and he started “singing the blues’ ‘ very loudly … or maybe he was protesting! Blue loves attention and will do anything he can to be close to you, including rubbing against your legs. He doesn’t like to be held, but will happily come over to cuddle on his own.
When you pet him, he does anything he can to get a better scratch, including getting up on his tippy-toes and stretching his back up or pushing his head and face into your hand. He loves to chase toys that have a satisfying “crunch.”
Oreo generally doesn’t mind being held and is also very cuddly, especially if you give him good scratches on his jaw or upper chest! He is a talker and loves to announce where he is, and let you know when he has entered another room
He also enjoys drinking water from the faucet and watching the goings-on outside from a perch by the window. He goes nuts over laser pointers and will happily tell you how much he likes to chase it, fluttering and meowing as he hunts it down.
Both cats are incredibly loving and cuddly and always want to be around their people. They don’t seem terribly bothered by dogs, as long as the dogs leave them alone (and after they have had a chance to warm up).
They also have been good around children. They warm up to strangers and visitors fairly quickly. Both boys have had some teeth removed due to dental issues.
Blue has what his guardians call his “drunk butt.” It seems to be a slight weakness of his back legs that has existed since he was a kitten and creates a little bit of sway to his walk and run.
It has never caused him any pain or discomfort, and evaluations by several vets over the years has not raised any concerns.
All Golden Oldies cats are spayed/neutered, up to date on rabies and FVRCP vaccines, microchipped, FIV/FELV negative and have had a complete blood panel done.
