These two have been with us since July 2012 at about 5 weeks old. They came in separately. Initially Sophie came with her brother Spenser, a sweet little round faced orange tabby. Sophie & Spenser were brought to the Bellwood police department by one of their Officers. The first time I saw them, Sophie was all 4 paws on the grate. Spenser had his front 2 on the grate as his back 2 dangled out of the grate openings, paralyzed. Spenser died at the vet due to complications of spinal cord injury the next day. Sophie acted as his legs. He would lay on her and she'd move them from place to place. After Spenser died, I put him in the carrier with Sophie. For the next hour, Sofie lay cuddled close, with her arm around him for an hour. when she came to the front of the carrier, I took her out. It was sad and beautiful experience. Next day, sophie arrived at Bellwood pD, Due to size and condition, we knew they were siblings. Sophie & Sylva have been together since.
They've grown into happy healthy bonded siblings that have great personalities. They're very loving, feisty and gorgeous. Watching them cuddle and play is pure Zen.
