Purrfect Post Blog Cat(s) of the Month - Mavis and Maude

Mavis and Maude are very special ladies. These sisters came into HSEC together, and they're so close that we would love to see them go into a home together. In fact, if you adopt Mavis, you can take Maude for free - or vice versa!

(Adopting two cats, especially ones that are already friends, doesn't mean twice the work or expense. Take a gander at our post about adopting two cats for more details.)

The girls are about one year old, are both small (around 7lbs) and Mavis has a beautiful solid black coat, while Maude is a gorgeous tortie. They're both just as friendly as can be - the best word we'd use to describe them is 'sweet'. Maude just loves belly rubs, while Mavis prefers head scratchies. They are somewhat shy, and while they would be all right in homes with other pets - they have lived in a home with several cats and a dog - they would probably prefer a quieter setting.
One major reason why Mavis and Maude are such a good pair is the gentle care that Maude provides for her sister. Mavis is a special needs kitty, completely blind in one eye and with limited vision in the other. Her vision is not expected to deteriorate further or to need any special medical attention as she gets older - it's just the way she is!

When the sisters are in an unfamiliar place - like our kitty exercise enclosure at the facility - Mavis makes little chirps. Maude responds by chirping back, and Mavis uses the sound to find her sister and cuddle down together for a good catnap. It is the SWEETEST thing. Once in their new home, Mavis may need some time to become used to unfamiliar surroundings, but with Maude to help her out, these sisters will be snuggling on your lap in no time.

All cats with the Humane Society of Eastern Carolina are evaluated for temperament, spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, dewormed, on flea prevention and tested for FIV/FeLV. The adoption fee for adult cats is $70. All cats must leave in a carrier. You can either bring your own or purchase a cardboard carrier for an additional $6.

We are open Friday through Sunday 2pm - 5pm or by appointment only during the week. You can call (252) 413-7247 or email for more information.
