I have to ease myself back into this blogging business, so here is a post about cats. This is the internet, and the internet loves cats. This is a post about my last two foster cats: a brother pair named Sparky (white muzzle and paws) and Singe.
Sparky and Singe belong to a friend of mine. They were temporarily without a home for about two months this past summer and I, being catless at the time, took them in. They were sweethearts.
Sparky and Singe are brothers. I do not remember if they were born in the same litter or not, but they have only known each other since they were kittens. They get their name from a house fire they survived before they were adopted.
My friend fell in love with Singe while looking for a cat to adopt, but since he bonded with Sparky, adopting one meant adopting the other. This is a typical practice in cat adoption, per my experience. Some cats find family in another cat, and it is pretty cruel to separate them.
Singe and Sparky will be 8 years old on their next birthday. Both are playful though Sparky is more curious than his brother. Sparky is a lap cat, and Singe likes to perch.
When giving treats, Sparky is more likely to eat Singe’s share as well as his own, and Singe lets him. Every time, I am disappointed in Singe a little bit, but I guess if he does not really want it then that is his choice.
