Pets Of The Week: Orange Tabby Siblings 'Penny & Poppy'
Meet Poppy and Penny, Orange Tabby female siblings who are approximately 8 months old. They were found cowering near a water heater during the rainy season in San Fernando. The lucky sisters were scooped up by a nice lady and brought to Purrfect Solutions Feline Rescue for shelter and TLC.
Due to their precarious situation early on, the little ladies arrived in a “hissy and spitty” state. The volunteers at Purrrfect Solutions worked for months to socialize Poppy and Penny and now they greet new visitors and love receiving pets and attention. They enjoy playing and climbing, too. These little lions have mighty purrs!

Poppy and Penny get along well with the other felines at the rescue. They would be fine in a home with other cats, but would prefer to be in an adult home.Penny came to Purrrfect Solutions with a damaged eye that was removed. She has completely recovered. Having just one eye has not slowed her down a bit. She is very brave and loves to chase anything that moves. She has the heart of a lion!
These two sisters have been tested, fixed, and microchipped. They adore each other and are ready for a loving home. These two little lions could be the perfect match for you! Take a look at this video of Penny and Poppy, rockin' to "Eye of the Tiger."
