Introducing Molly and Kirby

Because it's Puggle Season, and because she had nowhere else to go, today I brought home this girl:

Molly is a Puggle mix who was adopted out as a puppy, and the people who adopted her failed to socialize her.  She's been bounced around from one home to another, and recently was turned in to a shelter.  The shelter scheduled her to be euthanized because she has shown aggression.  She is very hand shy and insecure.   I said I'd give her a try at my house and if she was too aggressive we'd have to make the tough decision to have her euthanized.  She's been here for three whole hours now and I'm pretty sure that she's not going anywhere except to an adoptive home eventually.  She's very sweet.  She acts a lot like Miley, except that she does startle very easily.  We will have to find just the right adoptive home for her, and until then I'll be working a lot with her to boost her confidence and teach her better ways to handle her fear.  Right now she's curled up next to me on the couch as I type, and Miley is curled up on her other side.  I think she's going to fit in just fine.

Kirby, on the other hand, is a different story altogether.  I wasn't looking for a foster pet like Kirby.  But when I went to the shelter last week and saw him, I had to rescue him.  He's been at the shelter for three months!  He's been featured as the "Pet of the Week" twice, and still no one picked him.  I can't understand why... one glance and I was in love with this very strange looking creature....
Can you guess what he is?

If you guessed a very unique looking kitten, you are correct!

 I've never seen a kitten with black fur with silver tips.  His tail is almost all silver.  He's gorgeous and extremely friendly - he starts purring as soon as I touch him.  I'm in love.

We had an adult cat just like that at the shelter when I worked there, and he was gone in record time! Hopefully Kirby will have good luck with you!

Molly and Kirby are both gorgeous. I'm surprised no one would snatch up a very different, very beautiful kitty like Kirby.

Molly is so lucky to have been taken in by you. Now, her healing begins!
