CRITTER CHATTER: Double the fun with these furry twosomes

North York Mirror

The column theme for this month is pets in pairs looking for forever homes.

Often overlooked and harder to find adoptive homes, bonded couples of cats and dogs are frequently found in shelters and rescues. In this month’s column you’ll meet Marvin and Mindee, a tabby twosome found on the city streets, and Kai and Peeta, a Pekingese pair that lost their home when their owner lost her job.

Hopefully, they’ll be home for the holidays but if not, they are all in loving foster homes.

Marvin and Mindee are gorgeous tabbies that were living outside this past summer, found almost completely furless due to an infestation of fleas. They were also extremely emaciated.

They have come a long way, thanks to the cat organization that stepped in to help them. They have regained health and hair!

According to Urban Cat Relief volunteers, “They both adore lots of attention and will follow you all around, purring and look lovingly up at you. They especially want to be cuddled and given lots of kisses. Despite the trauma they’ve been through they have wonderful personalities.”

Marvin and Mindee are approximately five years old, fully vaccinated and spayed and neutered. For more information on M and M, contact Heather at 905-897-8273 or

Kai and Peeta were surrendered to Save Me Rescue because their owner was faced with a serious financial situation.

This pair of purebred Pekingese have been together since they were six weeks old and are very bonded so a home together is required.

Kai is an eight-pound, blond, neutered Peke with a sweet and loving disposition. Peeta is a black male, 16 pounds and equally delightful. Both dogs are now two years old, neutered and up to date on their vetting.

They enjoy going for walks, car rides, playing in the snow, cuddles, their foster family and most of all, each other. Foster parent reports that both dogs have nice temperaments, get along well with other dogs, love running free in the fenced backyard (they had never had access to a secure fenced area before) and provide daily entertainment with their antics.
