The Clifton Times Pet(s) of the Week: Meet Galaxy and Twilight
Meet Galaxy and Twilight, two beautiful 4.5-5-year-old sister and brother cats who came from a home together and are now waiting for their forever homes at the Clifton Animal Shelter. They are fully vetted, spayed and neutered, and up to date on vaccines. Check out Galaxy and Twilight’s Petfinder profiles and adoption videos HERE and HERE
Galaxy is a beautiful tortoiseshell cat, with golden eyes and very distinctive markings. Her brother Twilight is a handsome black/tuxedo kitty who loves to chat up a storm.
Galaxy and Twilight were in a home with a lot of other cats, so they get along well with other cats and would fit in nicely with your existing cat friends. They are adorable, very playful, and affectionate, and would make an excellent addition to any family. Although Galaxy and Twilight do not have to be placed together, the shelter likes to place two cats together because, despite the common belief that cats are solitary animals, they’re actually very social beings who thrive when they have feline friends from an early age. 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. Having two cats isn’t extra work, as they share toys, a water dish, and a dry food dish, though the shelter recommends having two separate wet bowls.
If you are able to give Galaxy and Twilight the loving start they deserve, 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 (shelter phone number: 973-470-5936).
Please consider adding Galaxy and Twilight to your home! The Clifton Animal Shelter has many wonderful cats and kittens in need of homes, ready to bring lots of love and joy to your home. Check out their page on Petfinder to see their sweet faces.
