About Marble

Adopted by Nova, Brian & Nate
Born ~6/3 /2013, F, “Unusual Tortie Point” Siamese Mix
Needs to be adopted with Penelope aka Penne

A woman who had three young Siamese kitties sold her home and planned to travel. Someone gave her my name and she called me Monday asking if I could take her cats. Escrow was closing Wednesday and the cats would have to go to the shelter that morning unless someone could help. A friend and I dropped everything to drive north to get them Tuesday. These are three very nice kitties. The male, Toshi, can go to a new home alone. The other two sisters, Penelope and Marbles, are very bonded and need to be adopted together. They are great play buddies. Penne and Marble BOTH have paint brush tails. Both of their tails are dark with a bright white tip as if they were dipped in a paint can. So much fun.

I know Marble the least well of the three and will write more when I know her better. She is quite underweight at 4 pounds 6 ounces. She should probably be the same size that her sister will be at her normal weight -just under 7 pounds.(This is an estimate). These girls are fairly small kitties. Little cuties. Marble is clearly a Siamese mix and what an interesting coat of colors she has! She has a ringed tail with a white tip. She has red and brown patches on her head. Her back is covered with soft brown patches. All told she is unique and great fun to look at. Her owner told me she named her Marble since when she slept she was all curled up in a little round ball, like a marble. Adding to her special look is the fact that she has very blue cross-eyed eyes. She is very cute.

These three kitties were fed high quality dry food ( Origen ) but not really enough of it. Perhaps this owner followed instructions on the bag, I will check, but regardless they needed more food than they got. These kitties like wet food but were not fed it except for a little tuna treat once a week. They will gain weight quickly but you can see their thinness in their photo’s. Though they are a little food obsessed at the moment, they seem to be in excellent health otherwise.

Shy little Marble is a playful girl. She and Penne are still full of kitten energy to put into their play They are often in contact with each other. Penne is the big, confidant sister to gentle Marble. Marble loves being petted. Being a little shy does not mean she holds back from getting some love. She just follows her sister’s lead.

Because they are such tight friends they must go home together.They would probably be all right with gentle non dominant cats. I have no idea how they would be with dogs though they were around dogs as kittens in rescue.. They both need a human who is with them much of the time and will give them lots of attention.

They haven’t had that. These three kitties did not have free run of their home, they spent the great majority of their lives in one small room without their human present. All three seem a bit love starved. Siamese cats need a strong loving connection with their families that includes frequent contact. If you check on Google you will read how Siamese are outgoing “social cats which rely heavily on human companionship.” ( PetMD )They are also known for often being vocally communicative with their families. Penne has a small voice and is sometimes happy to let you know her wishes ( food !) . These three are going through a huge transition from the isolation of their last home to the active world of their new foster home. They are settling in very nicely.

These beautiful little girls will adapt and flourish in the love, attention and space their new family can give them. They are a very entertaining twosome.

My apologies for the blurry photos. This little girl is always moving.

Marble eats wet and dry food and is litterbox perfect.

Her foster mom is Harriet in Santa Cruz.

NOTE: We prefer families with children bring them to the adoption appointment. Why? This allows interaction between the children and the cat. This helps ensure they will be a good fit for each other. A mismatch between a child and a cat is not in anyone’s best interest!
