Juniper and Cherry are a sweet sister pair born to a feral mom in a dangerous location by a restaurant supply store.  They survived by dumpster diving, but fortunately for them they were taken to the San Jose shelter by a concerned community member. They were quickly moved into charm school where they have been perfecting their manners and making great progress.   They are both still a bit shy and nervous around new people and loud noises, but are getting braver and bolder every day. Cherry is the more self-assured and confident than her sister. Juniper likes to let her sister go first and take the risks and then follows her lead when she sees it’s safe.   They may be initially concerned when picked up but with a bit of petting and soothing they will settle in and happily nap on your lap for the afternoon. When they become comfortable, they will initiate climbing onto people and asking for affection and both will eat treats from your hand.  Juniper and Cherry are both quite playful and haven’t met a toy they don’t like. They are big fans of wand-type toys, balls, and their own tails.   They will likely be nervous with new people and may take a bit of time to acclimate but should do so with a bit of time, patience, and treats. Prior to adoption, all kittens are spayed/neutered, tested negative for FIV/FELV, vaccinated and microchipped. Note that most of our kittens under age 5 months need to be adopted with a buddy. These kittens are currently in a foster home. To meet them, please fill out an adoption application so that we'll have your contact information, and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. www.thedancingcat.org/adopt show less

Frankie has a resilience and zeal for life that will capture your heart. She is so much more than her origin story but to understand where she is today, we have to acknowledge how far she has come. Frankie was shot with a pellet gun and some of the pellet fragments were lodged into her spine. Despite great efforts and surgery, Frankie remains semi-paralyzed in her back legs. She is undergoing daily physical therapy to stimulate her muscles, which she enjoys and cooperates with, especially if treats are involved.  Despite her therapy, it is likely she will never walk normally again. This does not slow Frankie down in the least! Wind up a toy and watch Frankie go go go! She zips around with the zoomies like any cat, and chases toys and shadows like a pro. Frankie likes to join her foster Mom on the couch or climb up into her cat tree. Nothing stops this adventurer! Except maybe bedtime with her person, she loves to share the bed or couch.    Caring for Frankie requires some experience with cats. She will need to continue her low-level physical therapy routine. Frankie can't totally control when she pees or poops. To prevent leakage and to avoid clean-up, her bladder is expressed three times a day. Any potential adopter will need to understand, learn and commit to properly caring for Frankie's needs while understanding they may change in the future. Frankie eats out of a slow feeder to help keep her weight at a healthy level.  Prior to adoption, all cats are spayed/neutered, tested for FIV/FELV, vaccinated and microchipped. This cat is currently in a foster home. To meet the cat, please fill out an adoption application so that we'll have your contact information, and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
