BLUE & MUNCH are amzing cats! A true bonded pair. They are always together; sleeping, playing, just hanging out. As long as they have each other, they will be fine.

MUNCHIE has a little hair lip, so people are constantly overlooking him because he's not the prettiest cat. But, he's actually one of our favorites because he's so sweet.  BLUE is an absolutely perfect Russian Blue mix.

They love people and are looking for a quiet home where they can get a lot of attention. BLUE & MUNCH enjoy chasing the laser pointer and if you're on the couch they will join you for some cuddles.  They will also sleep in bed with you if you'd like the company.

BLUE & MUNCH get along great with cat-friendly dogs. They have lived with two pitbulls and several small dogs and have done well with all of them. If you have an exceptionally friendly dog they will cuddle up in bed with him, especially BLUE.

They get along with cats, but in all honesty, they'd love to live in a home where they are the only cats so they can get all of the attention.  After everything they've been through, they are desperate for attention.

BACK STORY:

Back in late 2013 Passion 4 Paws adopted out two little kittens named BLUE & WHITELY (renamed MUNCH). They were not related to each other, but were the same age and had formed a tight bond in their foster home so they were adopted out as a bonded pair.

They were adopted to a young couple and moved on to what we believed would be a glorious life together. But alas, behind closed doors things were not perfect. For a time things were ok, but took a turn for the worse during the summer of 2017. First there was a move to a new home to make room for the baby that was on her way. Then the baby was born prematurely and tension in the home was higher than ever. There was an escalation of substance abuse, verbal and physical abuse, and eventually the wife fled the marriage with the baby, but left BLUE & MUNCH behind.

Poor MUNCH is a sensitive cat. The stress he endured caused him to lick and chew his fur until lick granulomas (open sores) appeared all over his body. His legs, elbows, even his entire lower abdomen was one large open sore. The condition is called eosinophyllic granuloma complex and in MUNCH's case was perpetuated by severe stress.

His owners took him to the vet, but all the vet ever did was inject MUNCH with steroids and eventually prescribed a chemotherapy drug called Atopica which is often used in animals with allergies. None of those drugs worked, because MUNCH didn't have allergies. He was living in a psychological hell and the only way he knew how to deal with it was to chew himself raw.

In early March 2019 we were finally contacted by the previous owner and were able to rescue BLUE & MUNCH and return them to their original foster home.

Both BLUE & MUNCH came back in terrible condition, but they are now back to their original AWESOME selves. MUNCHIES wounds have completely healed and his fur has grown back.

As you can see in the video, they are loving, friendly lap cats.

BLUE & MUNCH are ready for their forever home. One that is peaceful and quiet, no yelling and stress. A home that will love and cherish these two boys for the rest of their lives.

BLUE & MUNCH are great with dogs and have lived with both small dogs and large. They are good with most cats, but wouldn't mind going to a home where they are the only cats so they can get all of the attention.

BLUE & MUNCH are a bonded pair and must remain together.
