‘Yin and Yang were found together as strays, and though there are similarities in their appearance, their personalities are complimentary opposites.
“Yin is a lovely spayed pumpkin-orange kitty with long fur. Yin is an oddity for this because orange female cats are a rarity. Perhaps being unusual is what makes Yin shy when meeting strangers and — with the exception of Yang — uncomfortable with other cats. But Yin longs for the comfort of human companionship and a gentle soul can easily woo Yin and soon she can be found contentedly settled on a lap.
“In contrast, Yang is a neutered, apricot-orange cat with a short coat. He has an upbeat personality and, where Yin hesitates, Yang jumps in. Yang is a confident, happy boy who enjoys the company of humans and felines alike.
“Many people like the idea of having two cats in their household because a pair of cats can keep each other company while the rest of the family is away. Yin and Yang are excellent house cats as they are litter-box trained and would be happy as indoor or indoor/outdoor cats.
“Yin and Yang are a lovely balance of playfulness and contemplation. Yang will entertain with his gentle play or appreciation of attention while Yin can be a comforting presence gracing a windowsill when peace is what you seek.
“Yin and Yang make a complete and lovely whole.
“If you would like to meet Yin and Yang you can contact their foster mom, Jane, at 771-9375.”
