2 cats —Hydra & Nix — to be homed separately


Hi, my name is Nix and I am 7 years old. I am the one with the serious face but my foster mum calls me Sweet Pea and Silly Goose, go figure.

 I am not confident enough to sit on laps or be picked up, but I do like fussing over frequently. I will let you know with head bumps. My foster mum knows that when I jump on the side table, I am ready for cuddles and when the brush comes out I get very excited and purr like a rusty engine.  

I didn't use to play with toys, but when someone teases me with a stringy toy now I can't resist and chase it around or lazily catch it while on my belly or back. I am getting quite good at it as long as you keep going too.

I am not sure if I'd like to live with other cats. My sister sometimes tries to get cute with me and we end up fighting till she runs under the bed. I do like chasing her though.

If you have a place with a garden and need a purrrfect forever companion I would love to hear from you.

 P.S. Over Xmas I was a superstar! I did not climb the tree or touch any of the decorations and I let myself be photographed with a silly little santa hat on.

Hi, my name is Hydra and I am 7 years old. I am the pretty one of the sisters and my foster mum calls me her love bug. Although I am not confident to sit on people's laps, I do love some good fussing, specially when it starts on my chest and then goes up to my ears. When you hit the sweet spot I flop over on my side and show you my furry belly. But don't be tempted to touch the belly, that is a private spot!

I wasn't used to play with toys, but now I do like to chase after the crochet mouse and play with the teaser toy. 

Sleeping most of the time is something I really enjoy and I won't mind some soft chin rubbing or ear scratching while I am cozy. I am silky soft and I know that my humans can't resist. 

I used to have my favourite kid in my other home and follow him around everywhere he went. My foster mum thinks I was trying to stay out of trouble this way, since my sister and I sometimes get into fights.

If you have a place with a garden I can roam and need a purrrfect forever companion I would love to hear from you.

P.S. Over Xmas I was a superstar! I did not climb the tree or touch any of the decorations and I let myself be photographed with a little ridiculous santa hat on.

Nix and Hydra are sisters we adopted a little over a year ago (2017) and have been living with us with two young boys (11 and 8).  Both have a very quiet disposition, enjoy the outdoors and are calm mature cats.   Both have gotten along fine with children of all ages.  The previous owners had a dog and while Hydra was fine with dogs, Nix was not and left home, seeking refuge at a neighbours.  This was part of the reason they were put up for adoption at the time.  Both enjoy going outside, but do not venture from the property’s garden.  They stay close to home and enjoy having the freedom to go in and our as needed.  Hydra, in particular, is able to open the front door if left unlatched.

Hydra has a more dominant personality, very independent.  She is a “one person cat”.  She took to our eldest son and follows him everywhere, much like a dog and they are inseparable. However, she doesn’t need or seek affection from anyone else.  She is much more reserved and skittish around anyone not her chosen master.  She has had no health issues while under our care.

Nix is the less dominant of the sisters.   However, she is also the most affectionate, in need of frequent attention.  She is much more social with everyone, though more timid with her sister and other cats.  She adores being brushed and scratched.  She is does, however, have flea dermatitis, which surfaced shortly after she came to us.  She must be regularly treated for fleas to avoid a rather severe reaction and itching.

Their current vet is Sinead Clancy at Pawsquad https://www.pawsquad.com/home-visit/london/sinead-clancy and she has been wonderful with them.
