two beautiful guys

Hi everyone.

I'm finally moving to BC at the end of the month - yay!
These two new rescues wandered into my life in August and I am really hoping someone will fall in love with their sweet faces so I can reduce my travelling companions to a modest ten.

The Siamese X was so sick when I found him, I thought his number was up. Thanks to the miracle of antibiotics, he recovered completely and has already been vaccinated, neutered, and treated for mites and fleas. His colouring may be a little avant-garde, but his character is all Siamese - hilariously expressive. He is generally OK with other cats but after his painful experience on the street he still needs plenty of TLC to improve his confidence. In the spur of the moment, I dubbed him Picasso, but he is more Rimbaud.

Barnaby the tuxedo was found living under a truck in a parking lot behind my house. Someone obviously took good care of this fellow, he is very healthy, with a wonderful coat and a great plume of a tail. He probably spent no more than a couple of weeks outside and once he got on the gravy train (mine lol), he didn't budge. While still very timid, he is just a normal, playful, adorable young cat. Freed of the mob he now lives with, he would be an excellent family pet, laid back, unaggressive and charming.

Welcome back Badger I was wondering when you went.

Picasso is a handsome Snowshoe and Barnaby is gorgeous for both of them

Congrats on the upcoming move, you're gonna love it here

Yes,looks like a Snowshoe for sure,a Birman has the same coloring but a fluffy tail.
He looks amazing as does the Tux.
How do you travel with 10 cats???
Are you flying or going for a very long drive??
The strays in your area will certainly
miss you,but you deserve a break.

Those kitties are so beautiful . I hope they find a home soon, badger.

It was an honour meeting you, badger, you are one of my heros .

Best wishes on your move out to BC, it is beautiful there.

btw, I still can't do what you did at Frenchy's, pick up Rose, the momma cat you transferred from one carrier to another

Badger - how about having them courtesy posted? Are they feline AIDS and Leukemia tested? How about vaccinated and sterilized?

Let me know if this is an option for you. Best to you my dear friend.
