Maestro and Rythum were part of an unwanted litter of five kittens that were surrendered to the BC SPCA Trail Regional Branch in July 2011. These two little balls of orange fluff were extremely scared and anxious when they initially came into the shelter. It was going to take a lot of time and patience to help Maestro and Rythum break out of their shells.
Hissing and growling were common noises these boys made, they were always unsure of what was going on around them. Maestro and Rythum went into a foster home to help them learn what a loving family life was all about. This helped immensely and when they came back to the Trail branch they were given lots of extra care and attention so that they would stay on the road to a happy kitty life.
Maestro and Rythum were both neutered and tattooed and soon went up for adoption. It took almost three months from the day they came into the shelter, but one day a nice young couple came in and spent time with this twosome. They appreciated the very different personalities of Maestro and Rythum and knew separating them was not an option; they adopted both.
Just wanted to let you guys know they are settling in and slowly starting to be more affectionate instead of just hiding. They have been eating and drinking a lot, and using the litter box. Also wrestling with each other and chasing each other around and playing with me too.
The letter from the new adoptive family was very inspiring for everyone at the Trail branch; it showed them that with commitment, patience, and lots of loving care you can help a feral kitten live happily ever after. Thank you so much to Maestro and Rythum’s fantastic new family for making adoption your first (and second) option.
