Chatons Orphelins Montréal, a rescue organization in Montreal, Canada, that has been entrusted with assisting and rescuing homeless felines, received a call regarding a couple of little felines in need of assistance. The kittens seemed to be around seven weeks old, in terrible health, terrified, and unwilling to be separated from one another.
They were covered in fleas, and it appeared that they had not yet been weaned, so they huddled close together, consoling one another. Two of the rescue center’s volunteers were the ones that hastened in their search and brought them to the shelter.
Celine Crom of Chatons Orphelins Montréal explained:
“There were three kittens at first, but one of them unfortunately died.” The litter’s parents were unable to care for the remaining two sisters.
The kittens named Zelda and Safira stayed together at every step they took, rubbed each other, and were alert to every movement not to separate, even though their temperaments seemed very similar.
The girls were treated for an eye infection and gastrointestinal issues before being put in foster care. Marie-Lyne and Pat, two shelter adoption volunteers, welcomed tiny Zelda and Safira, who immediately began exploring the area without being separated.
In the foster home they learned to eat solid food and gradually became pampered kittens, now they enjoyed games and sought to attract the attention of their humans with any mischief, but always together at every step.
The girls enjoy spending time near the window, and they appear to enjoy observing everything that goes on.
“They are mischievous, daring, and inquisitive about everything.” Closed doors irritate them, and they will climb on everything they can get their hands on. Safira talks a lot and enjoys having chats with her adoptive family, although Zelda is a little more autonomous than Safira.
These sisters are never apart and run around all over the place. When they feel exhausted from her games they usually cuddle up and Safira hugs her sister, she is always watching out for her.
The kittens have grown a lot, are quite active, and very happy since they were rescued by the shelter a few months ago. Safira is often imitating her sister Zelda, who is overprotective of her sister and watches her every action.
When the four months are out, these sweet sisters will be ready to find a permanent home where they will be loved unconditionally.
“They have a soft spot for people and other animals.” They’re laid-back and ready to meet their ideal partner.”
