Neal, domestic shorthair
Neal is a darling male domestic shorthair cat staying at Wild Blue Animal Rescue and Sanctuary.
He is already vaccinated and neutered.
Here's what Neal's friends at Wild Blue Animal Rescue and Sanctuary think of him:
At first, Neal sits back and assesses new people, but springs alive during play time. He's a competitive player when it comes to chasing that string along the floor or grabbing that wand, and when he's mentally "in the play zone" he is not interested in being petted (and he'll tell you so). However, once calm, he really enjoys his petting.

Drambuie, domestic shorthair
Drambuie is a darling male domestic shorthair cat staying at Wild Blue Animal Rescue and Sanctuary.
Drambuie is neutered, and he has had all his shots.
Notes on Drambuie:
I am initially reserved, but I warm up quickly when approached gently. I need ample time to adjust to changes. I love to be brushed and petted, and in return I will purr and purr. I would do best in a quiet home where I can slowly develop a trusting relationship.
