Marilyn and Pistol

Meet MARILYN and PISTOL, two adorable older kittens who were raised by a foster mom since they were orphaned at three weeks old.  They are super sweet, gentle, playful and loving.  Marilyn, with the mostly gray face, had a birthmark on her lip just like Marilyn Monroe.  Pistol, with the gray and white face, got his name because he spit and growled the first two days while hiding behind his sisters.  These kittens are extremely bonded to one another and must be adopted together.  Once they know a human they trust, they love to be held like a baby on their back and have their tummies rubbed.  Marilyn is the more confident kitty and adjusts more easily to new situations.  Pistol is a bit shy and looks to Marilyn to make the first move.  Once Marilyn is comfortable with someone, then Pistol steps forward for attention.  Since they haven’t had a mother from three weeks of age, they don’t know to “cat.”  They only know confined spaces, love, full bellies and soft toys and must be kept indoors only because they would never survive outdoors.  They are waiting for a home that will shower love on these two precious kittens.
