Post Leads to Happy New ‘Forever Family’ For Two Black Cats

We at Reston Now are very happy to share this email we recently received from Meghan and John, who say they are loving life with the new pair of cats they were inspired to adopt after seeing their photos in our weekly Pet of the Week column.

See photos of Stout and Porter above, and read what Meghan and John had to say about their new furry friends:

In debating what type of pet we should get (cat or dog), we “compromised” by agreeing to adopt “two cats and a dog,” even putting it our wedding vows.

While a dog isn’t feasible for us right now, we’ve kept our eyes out for a pair of bonded cats. Cue the “Pet of the Week” post about Werth and mention of his brother Harper. After meeting them and hearing that black cats are usually the last to be adopted, we knew we had found our cats.

We’ve had them about two weeks now and it seems like they’ve adjusted to all of the new sites and sounds (and humans) of their new home. Stout (née Harper) is energetic and the bolder of the two. His favorite activity is tumbling in the air as he plays with a feather toy. Porter (née Werth) is more subdued, but has one of the loudest purrs we’ve ever head.They both have a tiny, adorable “mew,” sounding just like little squeaky toys.

We’re so glad to have these guys – thanks for introducing us!
