Rescue pets: Midna and Luna

I grew up around pets my entire life and after I moved out of my parent's house I decided to adopt pets of my own.

My boyfriend, Rick, and I adopted these two tortoiseshell sister kittens on January of 2012 at the San Diego Humane Society. It was perfect; both of them were right in the lobby of the adoption center! It was like they were waiting just for us. They were six months old.

The staff at the shelter told us that, when they found these two (cute!) kittens, there was no sign of their mother or other siblings. So they couldn't tell for sure how long they were both alone without any care. Poor things. Rick and I fell in love with them and we adopted them the very same day. We named them Midna and Luna.

Midna has light green eyes, a cream-colored "tie" on her chest, and a deep orange "crown" behind her ears. Although she can be quite bossy sometimes, she's always down to play fetch with a paper ball. She always lets us know when she's hungry.

Luna is the sweetheart of the two; she's always first in line to be pet and cuddled. She has a cream-colored "scarf" around her neck and she sheds more than Midna does. Even though she loves exploring and climbing, Luna is the chubby one! She loves to play with shoe laces and strings.

Rick and I are so happy to have adopted Midna and Luna and give them the best, most happiest and healthiest lives possible.
