The Clifton Times Pet(s) of the Week: Meet Milo and Maddox!


Double your pleasure, double your fun! Milo and Maddox are two stunning tabby striped brothers who are currently at the Clifton Animal Shelter and are looking to be adopted together. They are three months old, up to date on their core vaccines, and will get updated boosters and be neutered once they are old enough.

Milo and Maddox were born on March 12, 2023. Their mom was an indoor cat, who got out once and came back home pregnant. She gave birth to five kittens, her guardians gave one away and the Clifton Shelter took in the remaining four siblings. Two have been adopted and now these adorable brothers are waiting for their turn. Milo and Maddox are super sweet and social and they are familiar with dogs, as they had a dog in their original home, so they will likely be good in a home with a friendly dog. They are super-bonded so would go home together. Two cats are just as easy as one as they keep each other company, pose for adorable pics, and give you double the love!

Having two cats isn’t much extra work as they share toys, a water dish, and a dry food dish, though the shelter recommends having two separate wet bowls. In fact, it can be easier than having one kitten, because they’ll wrestle one another and not your feet! Cats are social animals, who thrive when they have companionship. Left alone, a single cat can develop behavioral problems, and in some cases, even show signs of depression. Cats in bonded pairs are more likely to be better adjusted. Much of this comes from how the two interact and share day-to-day activities, like eating and playing together, and finding comfort in each other.

These little tiger babies are the perfect addition to any home and are ready to bring you lots of fun and cuddles as they explore the world with you.

If you think Milo and Maddox are the perfect addition to your family, please fill out the adoption application at the Clifton Animal Shelter and someone will contact you to discuss and answer any questions that you may have, and to set up a time to come in to meet them. The shelter does this to ensure that the environment is calm and conducive to having potential adopters get a good sense of the personality of the companion animal, and so they aren’t subjecting them to unnecessary stress. The shelter is located in the City Hall Complex at 900 Clifton Avenue in Clifton.

You can also support the Clifton Animal Shelter by donating via their PayPal link or by donating supplies to them from their wishlists (Chewy or Amazon).

Please consider making Milo and Maddox a permanent part of your family! The shelter has many wonderful cats and kittens in need, ready to bring lots of love and joy to your home. Check out their page on Petfinder to see their sweet faces.
