*Bonded with Taylor*

*Meet Swiftie and Taylor!  They are a bonded pair and will need to be adopted together.*

Hi!  I'm Swiftie!  I'm pretty shy, so don't expect a lot from me for a while. I hide under the bed a lot at first, but I’m starting to be a lot more social.  I'm always watching and learning.  Please be patient with me.  My sister, Taylor, and I were found in a window well, starving and in bad shape, but we are sleek and happy now, and will make good pets for you.  I always use my litter box and I like high places where I can look out the window.  I just love to play with Taylor!  She is my best friend, and so smart!  But I'm the one that keeps her exercised and lean. 
A small apartment or a house would be fine with me.  I can handle other cats, though it may take some time to warm up to them.  I've never met a dog, but I think I would be ok with a quiet old lump of a dog who is patient and kind.  I don't think I'd be good with young children, but almost anyone else would be ok in time.  If you can take me (and hopefully Taylor!) home, we would be your best friends ever.

Want to adopt a kitten? We highly recommend you consider bringing home two instead of one! Adopting kittens in pairs has been proven to be beneficial for cats’ emotional and behavioral well-being and greatly improves the likelihood of long-term adopter happiness as a result. Adopting more than one kitten also reduces the risk of “Single Kitten Syndrome” (also known as Tarzan Syndrome), a symptom of under-socialization during a kitten’s most formative weeks. Kittens who are under-socialized may develop aggressive tendencies toward both other animals and humans as they grow, creating lifelong behavioral issues for owners.
