Blanche, Rose and Dorothy: These three ladies were trapped as part of a TNR project after their owner became ill, lost her home, and they ended up outside with a Lansdowne colony. They were social and clearly not meant for outdoor life, so they were brought into foster together. They are spayed, up-to-date on shots, tested negative, and will be microchipped. These Golden Girls are young, playful, and very loving in their own special ways. After all they’ve been through, it would be a dream if these besties could stay together and become someone’s instant family, but other scenarios are possible. Blanche is super friendly and loves a good belly rub. You’ll find her wherever the human action is! She carries her favorite toy around like a baby, then puts it away. She is gentle and inquisitive, the peacemaker of the clan. Gorgeous Rose is a secret snuggler! When her sisters aren’t around, she’ll jump on your lap for long pets and head scritches. She loves her laser pointer, wool balls and especially treats! Dorothy is more shy and slow to warm up, but once she does, she’s your best friend forever! She adores pets from her favorite humans, and she will serenade you with the song of her people for a few minutes at the same time each day. Put on your best caftan, grab some cheesecake, and meet The Golden Girls! Applications are being accepted.
