Liza and Stella

This cat is bonded to her sister Stella, they MUST be adopted together

Have you ever stopped to reflect that the vast majority of cats that share our homes and our lives are born as a result of natural selection? Un-neutered cats that roam free “choose” their own mates, and the shelters swell with adorable but unwanted kittens year after year. But the intrinsic cat-ness has changed little over the millennia. Dogs, on the other hand, have been bred by humans for over 10,000 years, selecting for the traits that we most love: affection, loyalty, and obedience. The breeding of cats, the “selection” of breeding pairs only began in earnest 200 years ago. Bengal cats were bred for their wild markings; we humans find it attractive to have a pet that looks like a wild animal, but isn’t. Because of their rarity, it is very costly to purchase Bengal kittens from a breeder, which makes them also a bit of a status symbol. But despite their exotic look, they’re basically just cats.

Imagine, then, these two stunningly beautiful Bengal sisters being dumped. Not once, or even twice. Four times, despite lovely affectionate personalities and no obnoxious habits. Why? Because humans are complicated and our lives are messy. Our pets often become victims of our bad life decisions, or they share the unfortunate turns that can happen to any of us. Liza and Stella did not deserve the upheaval they’ve had to endure in the past few years. The family they loved, who bought them for the price of a luxury European vacation, who hand-raised them from kitten hood decided to get a dog. And the rest is history. Unwilling to share, unable to adjust, the girls landed on Kijiji. Re-homed, they were luckily safe and wanted again, but their second family shortly welcomed a new baby and the Bengal girls were back on Kijiji. Once more adopted (actually, purchased) they should have been able to put it all behind them. But the newest owner lost her job, and passed the girls on to a relative. The relative tragically left them on the doorstep of the shelter.

How far they came! And now, once more, Liza and Stella are looking for a home. We want this to be their last one. Maybe this time, adoption rather than purchase will be the magic they need, because it will find for them someone who just loves cats, who wants to repair the damage done to their innocent lives, who will enjoy exploring their unique personalities rather than their exotic look. Like other Oriental cats, these girls are active, and vocal, affectionate and loving, smart and curious. They require a lot of interaction with their humans with play and exercise a big part of their day. Like all cats, they need a quality diet and regular vet care. But mostly they need love and security, unconditionally and for the rest of their lives.

Applicants for Liza and Stella MUST have Bengal or Siamese experience, in a home without small kids or dogs. Suitable applicants must have a well documented history of pet ownership and supply vet references. Because of high demand for this pair we regret we can only respond to such applications.
