Need Your Help  
FList, I need your help.

I can't keep my kitties any longer. For many long and complex reasons, there is no way we can continue to keep our boys in the house. I can't take them to the SPCA as they are too old for the SPCA to keep around even though they are gorgeous, sweet and wonderful kitties. Butch and Sundance are brothers, neutered and litter box trained. They are wonderfully affectionate and love people, petting and cuddling.

They are brothers, and I have had them since they were born. Some of you might even remember when they were born in 2003, back in the day when I was under the old LJ name and I posted about the event.

I need someone to take my boys, someone who will love them and keep them together. I am willing to drive pretty far to deliver them to you or to someone you know who will love them and care for them.

Will you help me spread the word? I will have them checked out by their vet and given any shots they are due for and a clean bill of health to whoever takes them in.

Look at my boys - are they not the sweetest faces in the world?



Any help or signal boosting you can give is much, much appreciated.

Signal boosted. I'd take them, but I'm honestly afraid that Meg would kill a new cat :(

*HUGS* Thanks for the help, sweetie. I just cannot handle the thought of them going to the SPCA knowing that it would be the end for them. :(

posted, so sorry I can't help further. I was in similar position when I moved from CT to HI, brother/sister Whisper/Shadow. In the end we found good homes- sending *lots* of good thoughts your way :)

Here via gblvr's signal boost:

I'm in Montana and can't take them. But there's an outfit in Maryland near BWI called Rude Ranch Animal Rescue--they're a no-kill shelter and really awesome folks. Their site is here.

If you can't find someone willing to give your boys a home, you might give Rude Ranch a call--when I was afraid that my ex-husband wouldn't keep our cat (I couldn't), they were willing to take him in.

Edited to fix the HTML, sorry 'bout that.

Thanks for the link! I sent them a request for information. They look pretty awesome - the boys would have lots of company and attention there. :)
Krisquiet000001 on July 30th, 2010 09:21 pm (UTC)
Got here via a signal boost - do you have any idea how they'd do with dogs? (My mom might be interested, but they have a cocker spaniel - we had a cat when she was a puppy, so she's okay with them - and my guy visits them pretty frequently.)
delicate unique caffeinated snowflakeinkandchocolate on August 2nd, 2010 12:28 pm (UTC)
I don't know how they would be with a dog -we've never had anything but lots of cats around. I would like to think they'd be cool but I honestly would hate to put the cocker spaniel in a position to get scratched. My guys have their claws... :(

You are so awesome for posting. Can I keep you on my list of folks to follow up with?

Awww, they're so handsome! I'll ask a friend in the Philly area who might be interested.
delicate unique caffeinated snowflakeinkandchocolate on August 2nd, 2010 12:29 pm (UTC)
I would love you even more than I do now if you could do that. And that's is a WHOLE LOTTA LOVE! *smishes you*

Have you tried posting this to Craigslist? I know they have a community/pets section that deals with stuff like this.
delicate unique caffeinated snowflakeinkandchocolate on August 2nd, 2010 12:30 pm (UTC)
I feel nervous about using Craigslist for rehoming. I know it's probably silly but I worry they would end up in some lab for animal testing or something. I'm probably just paranoid, but it makes me worry.

::sniff:: This made me cry a little. I wish I lived closer, or by myself, or SOMETHING. I suspect they would get along famously with my Buddy.
delicate unique caffeinated snowflakeinkandchocolate on August 4th, 2010 03:28 pm (UTC)
I wish you could take them - that would have been so awesome, bb. *HUGS*
Qsparky77 on July 31st, 2010 01:38 am (UTC)
I will ask around. I might know a couple people who would be interested.

You are made of win - thank you for your help, darling girl.

My heart hurts for you. I wish I knew how to help - I'm up here in the 'Frozen North' so not much use to you. But I have everything crossed and am sending out positive vibes that you find a good home for them. *hugs*

I have someone interested but she wonders where you are. I can't figure it out from your profile.

God, I wish I could take them, but I can barely afford my two. D: I signal boosted this on my journal and I'll ask around with my friends.

I just got 2 earlier this year from a friend of a friend who needed to rehome them, so I hope this works out for you. Also x-posted to LJ and IJ.

Here via a signal boost. I'm in Canada and already have four cats but if you were closer I'd be SO tempted to take these two beautiful boys! I hope you can find good homes for them. *fingers crossed*

Thank you so much for the good vibes - every bit helps!

I saw this on
[Error: Irreparable invalid markup ('<lj-user="rydra_wong">') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]

I saw this on <lj-user="rydra_wong">'s journal... I'm not sure I should post this, since I'd still have to think about it, but lately I've been considering adopting a cat since I miss my family's cats a lot. I'm sort of far away, though--I don't know if you'd be willing to drive to NYC? Or if the cats would be okay in a studio apartment?

Boosted the signal back on my LJ. I hope that your beautiful boys will get a wonderful home.

Adorable.

My son is allergic to cats, so two cats in the house would not be good, to put it mildly. I will however, ask my friends and neighbors (I'm in the Philly area) if they are interested.
delicate unique caffeinated snowflakeinkandchocolate on August 6th, 2010 01:14 am (UTC)
You are awesome - thank you so very much!

Any news?
Just wondering if there is any news on Butch and Sundance? We hope they still have a home, somewhere.

Ppuurrrrring for them both.
delicate unique caffeinated snowflake: nf || scaredy catinkandchocolate on August 25th, 2010 12:37 pm (UTC)
Re: Any news?
They are still with us, no luck placing them yet. Running out of time so please keep fingers, toes, paws and anything else you can managed crossed for the boys!

Thanks for checking in. :)

Help Available for Brothers
I have Expedia.com credits of over $400 to contribute if someone wants to either get the boys or fly them to their location. Have been advised another person will give cash to offset expenses of whoever will take these sweet boys. If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know.
My email is mlgigg AT sbcglobal DOT net (the first is lower case initials for mary lynn giggleman, my name).
Please get in touch with me. I cannot take them as I already am over my limit with 6 cats.
famblykittens on August 29th, 2010 06:08 am (UTC)
Where are the cats?
I'm interested in taking these boys but I need to know where you are and WHY you can't keep them in the house any longer. Further information would be very helpful.
delicate unique caffeinated snowflake: nf || kitty loveinkandchocolate on August 31st, 2010 01:16 pm (UTC)
Re: Where are the cats?
I would be happy to tell you more information. I will send you a message on LJ rather that explaining here.

Thanks for asking!
