I really hope there's someone out there who can help.
I'm moving to the US later this year so, with great regret, need to find a loving, new home for my pair of old and faithful cats; Eric and Treacle.
They're both short-haired black cats with yellow/green eyes, have been with me for over 19 years and have been through several, domestic house moves during that time but, at this stage of their lives, a 12 hour flight and relocation to another country might be asking a bit too much.
They are in great condition considering their age with no medical conditions whatsoever, are microchipped and had their vaccinations updated in October 2014. Eric's slowed a little and is down to his last big canine tooth while Treacle still
looks and behaves like a 6-month old kitten.
Other than the occasional escape through an open window during the summer, they're both lifelong house cats.
Individually, Eric is big, daft and friendly who will try to follow you everywhere. He does prefer a diet based on small chunks in gravy, however. I'd name the current brand but, because he's a cat, sod's law says he'd suddenly go off it if I did. Treacle on the other hand, is more shy or standoffish...except when she's hungry (and will eat pretty much anything) or wants to be played with.
Despite being siblings, they aren't close. They don't fight but definitely prefer their own space and I don't think they'd mind/notice being split-up if they found separate new homes. They can both be a bit vocal, usually before breakfast, but other than that, are very low maintenance and undemanding so long as they have full bellies and clean litter.
Because of their age and how they've lived the majority of their lives, I don't think a new home with young children or other pets would be be a good idea.
They both have their own carriers that have only been used a handful of times which can be kept by anyone generous enough to adopt the cats. They were a lot bigger than I imagined - one could comfortably accommodate both of them - and could be used as safe, sheltered beds while they settle in.
I've shared almost half my life with these two and the decision to give them up is one of the hardest I've ever made. I absolutely do not want them to see out their remaining time stuck in a small cage at a rescue centre like where I found them so hope there's somebody out there who can give them the lifestyle they deserve during their twilight years.
Just remembered, here's some photos of them:http://i.imgur.com/sNiAh73.jpgEric
