Who doesn't like to hang out wif a couple of lovely ladies? Tippy and Penny haz great purrsonalities and are wonderpurr friends. I sat down wif the ladies after their shift was over at #NipClub and asked about their life.
How old were you when you moved in with your family? Were you a rescue?
Penny: I was 2 and had been returned to the rescue twice. Kathy saw me on Petfinder, said she had to have me and we fell in love the next day. It was so cold in that rescue place. I had a cagemate and we kept each other warm
Tippy: I was less than a year old and had kittens. My former people left me and my new kittens in a box at the shelter in the hot sun on an August Sunday. The people from the shelter found us early Monday morning. They took us in. They fed us and gave us water. It was soooo good. Soon I was spayed they put up for adoption. One Saturday Annie and Kathy came in. Annie was looking for a calico kitty because hers had recently gone OTRB. They let her pick me up. I liked her but had to play hard to get. You know what I did? When she put me down, I ran into my cage and closed the door after me.
What kind of cats are you?
Tippy: I am a Calico and Penny is a Gray/white tuxie.
How was your mom inspired to name you?
Tippy: Well, Annie first named me Libby after the Liberty Humane Society, where I was adopted from. But when I got to my furever home, I always ran around the house. I ran funny so Grandpa called me Tippy Toes. That became my name.
Penny: I was 2 years old when Kathy adopted me. My name was Penelope. She liked my name and wouldn't change it. Then she shortened it to Penny. She calls me both names. Sometimes Grandpa calls me Philadelphia just to make everyone laugh.
