Star

Jojo

Star, a Maine coon/tortie mix, and and buff-colored JoJo are a bonded pair acquired from a hoarder site by Columbia Gorge Cat Rescue. And  they’re now ready for their new home.

Sally at Columbia Gorge Cat Rescue says she would like them to stay together.

“These two are very social and sweet. They decided they needed to help each other out and be buddies. They are delightful, especially when you know what they went through to get here. Seeing them play now is just so wonderful. We hope you will recognize their special love and adopt them together.”

Contact Columbia Gorge Cat Rescue for more information on Star and Jojo.
