Cats of the Week: Cupid and Valentine

Julia D Cat of the Week

Hello Cat Lovers!  Valentine’s Day is fast approaching – and what better time to adopt a pair of bonded brothers (who are absolutely adorable)? Our very own Cupid & Valentine.  These playful little rascals are sweet and cuddly and sometimes a bit rambunctious with their kitten shenanigans. They are waiting for their special ‘someone’ to keep these two brothers together forever.

Check out their photo session pics; who can resist their beautiful markings and adorable faces? Their estimated birthdate is approximately 9/16/23. Cupid loves to play with all manner of toys but he’s especially fond of pouncing on the prey at the end of a wand toy, grabbing it in his mouth and proudly prancing off with his catch.  Such a masterful hunter!  He also loves to wrestle with his brother to determine who’s king of the castle.  Once he’s tired himself out, Cupid loves nothing more than to cuddle up on your lap and perhaps will even suckle on your fingertip before drifting off to sleep. Valentine is a happy, carefree little guy who’s full of kitten playfulness and cuteness but also loves his pets and rubs and will reward your efforts with a monster purr.   He loves to romp with his littermate and after he’s had his fill of fun, will curl up on your lap for a restful nap.  Valentine is the sweetest, most precious kitten and this pair of sweet boys will be a loving addition to your home!

It is not unusual for kittens to maybe be a bit shy meeting new people or in a new environment, but with proper consideration given to letting them acclimate, they usually adjust pretty quickly.  They have spent time with older cats, little kids, and adults; dogs are unknown.  If you’re looking for lovable, playful lap kittens, you couldn’t make a better choice than to bring Cupid and Valentine into your home.

The adoption fee for these bonded brothers is $175.00.  They are completely vetted. Both are neutered and have had their FVRCP vaccinations and rabies vaccinations, they both tested negative for Feline Leukemia, have been given a dewormer treatment and a Revolution parasite treatment.  They are also microchipped.  Their microchip has a free lifetime registration and LHAR will register them for the new owners upon adoption.  Your responsibility will be to always keep all of your information updated with the microchip company so you have a better chance of getting your kitty returned to you should he ever get outside, etc.

Cupid and Valentine are residing in the Waterloo PetSmart Store Adoption Center located at 1506 Flammang Drive in the Crossroads Shopping Center area off of San Marnan Drive.  The store is nestled between Hy-Vee and the Barnes & Noble bookstore.  Store hours are 9-9 Monday-Saturday and 10-7 on Sundays; holiday hours vary.  LHAR does not do on-site adoptions but you can stop by the store anytime to see the kitties currently residing in the adoption center.  PetSmart employees cannot show you the cats, but if there happens to be a Last Hope volunteer in the adoption area who is cleaning their living area and socializing the kitties, they may have time to let you meet them.
