A litter of six kittens was found in a box in a North Carolina parking lot and wound up at Sparkle Cat Rescue. Out of those kittens, two had a bond too strong to break. The rescue simply couldn’t, in good conscience, separate the sisters, who were always together, cuddling and playing. One by one, they watched their siblings being adopted into loving homes.
The calico beauties, CC (short for Cookies and Cream) and Cara (short for Caramel) went home with foster volunteer Sarah Kelly, so they would not be stuck in a shelter while they waited for their dream to come true. The young cats had begun to fall behind in reaching their growth milestones and Sarah hoped that she could help them rally back.
In the next few weeks, Cara and CC began putting their weight back on. Home living seemed to agree with the gorgeous sisters. Their connection continues, and may even have grown stronger. The foster home reverberates with their group purring, and they snuggle together whenever they are not playing together.
Sleepytime always means cuddle time, and the kittens sleep with their limbs entwined. Sarah feels sad to see her sweet foster babies keep waiting for their forever family. No one likes to be kept in limbo. Sarah even made a letter from CC and Cara to Santa Paws at holiday time, asking him for a “furrever home,” and promising that they behaved “purrfectly” all year, but Santa hasn’t yet responded. The kittens, now seven-month-old teenagers, continue to wait. They will keep up their “purrfect” behavior this year in hopes that Santa takes notice.
