Helene and Maria: will be in Berkeley tomorrow at George Shop on Fourth Street

Helene and her sister Maria are super lovable, active, playful, affectionate kitties. These great girls are in a foster home now in the East Bay. They need a real home now. They are great cats!

Fun-loving, but also purring lap kitties, they have been with The Milo Foundation since May of 2010, and are desperate for a loving home.

They are friendly and sweet with people, and are adorable together, cleaning and preening each other.

They are beauties with different styles that complement each other. Helene is the fluffier beauty, and Maria is the caretaker and protector, playing games when they get a chance. Maria is more interactive with people, Helene is more independent. Maria will wash your face for you.

Come meet Maria and her sister Helene at our East Bay mobile adoption events. Next for the gals: Sunday March 18th, 12-4, at George Shop in Berkeley, 1824 Fourth Street, in the parking lot area.

Berkeleyside’s weekly column, “Adopt a Pet”, hopes to help match pets with a home and loving owners in our community. We partner with the Milo Foundation to introduce, every Saturday, just one of the many pets that can be adopted. The Milo Foundation, a nonprofit, no-kill organization, provides an alternative for homeless pets throughout Northern California, through education, adoption services, and sanctuary until permanent homes can be found. Contact them directly to find out the more than 300 wonderful animals that are available for adoption.
