We adopted our sibling cats, Figaro and Penelope (formerly Figiro and Minnie Mouse) from Marin Humane in June 2019. We had lost our beloved senior kitty to lymphoma earlier in the year, and are hearts were heavy and our home felt empty without a kitty presence.

My daughter and I were at the Red Hill Shopping Center in San Anselmo one afternoon and spotted Penelope in the window of Kitty Corner. We decided to go in and look, and that was that: we were immediately smitten by this coal black kitten and her mischievous, tuxedo kitten brother. We held them and just knew they were meant to be ours. They are now two years old and fill every day with joy. Penelope purrs anytime we’re near and is the biggest cuddle bug. She and my six year old daughter are particularly bonded. Figaro is such a sweet and loving boy who adores laps. They are both so bonded to each other and us. Our hearts were broken when we lost our senior cat; Figaro and Penelope have helped us heal. We’re so grateful to Marin Humane and the wonderful foster who took such loving care of our babies before they joined our family.
