Sebastian is a female cat. She’s just over a year old and she’s growing very fast. She used to be a tiny cat, but now she is growing into a large, beautiful cat. Her legs are long and muscular, her chest is wide, her shoulders are broad, her muzzle looks like that of a tiger. Her colours give away her domesticity, however, as she is a velvety gray with a white bib, belly, and paws, along with only one side of her little gray nose, which is perfectly on the rounded part, and nowhere else. She looks like she should have had it on both sides, to be symmetrical, but it looks somehow right on her. She has very large, golden eyes. Each of her little toe pads are alternating colours - one pink, one gray - on every foot. Two of the main pads are gray, two are pink. She’s a bit antisocial, but when she’s lovable, you can hear her several blocks away, her purr is so loud.
Her baby adopted sister, Kero, is a confounding ball of fluff. Kero is about a year old, and even the shelter couldn’t seem to get straight what colour they wanted to call her. She is black, yellow, and white, yes… but it’s too hard to tell if she is a tortie, or a calico. Some patches look very calico, in that they are very distinctly seperate, but on her entire back, the colours are all intermingled like a tortie. To add to this confusion, her calico-esque face, tortie-esque tail and front legs, have tiger stripes, which could make her a torbie, as well. She has an all white bib, belly, and paws, though. And a cute little pink nose, and wide, golden eyes. She’s quite fond of using the Shrek “Puss in Boots” big black eyes look on us. It works as the movie shows us it will. She’s still very small.
Of the two, Kero is the most lovable, and I would like to think it’s because she’s the most appreciative, since we rescued her from the shelter. Everyone thinks their shelter cats have had some horrendous past, and I don’t want to think Kero’s was overly dramatic, but she does have hip troubles, drippy, gooey eyes that we need to tend to every now and then (though she’s healed quite well), and when we adopted her, her entire hind end was shaved for some inexplicable reason - no one we spoke to at the shelter had any idea why this was done to her. Her history is unknown, since they had found her on the streets only a week before we adopted her. Regular trips to the vet have shown she’s improved since we got her in June, she’s happy, healthier, and has gained four pounds since her first visit the day after we adopted her. She loves to sleep in my lap, or more often than not, on my shoulder, much like a baby. She expects me to prop her up with my left hand while lays her head on my shoulder and dozes peacefully - for hours. Hours. I can do housework, cook, dance and sing, etc, with her clinging to my shoulder. Snoring.
