Fred & Barney

Fred is a shy and endearing grey tabby with four white paws and a white chest. Despite the fact that he is both larger and stronger than any of his littermates, he has a gentle and soft approach when playing with them.

Fred is bonded with his foster brother Barney and adores cuddling with him. Although curious about the shaggy dog of the house, he keeps his distance—as he does with the two adult cats.

He is quick to play and enjoys exploring. He responds well to a soft gentle approach and quickly expresses his appreciation to any affection with a loud purr.

Barney is a shy boy like his foster brother Fred. He has striking classic tabby markings along with a white chest and paws. Like Fred, he is a gentle soul and has a soft play style with his litter mates.

Barney is very curious about the adult cats in the house and, if they allow, tries to snuggle with them. He has become used to the large shaggy dog and ignores him during play.

Barney is bonded with Fred and is frequently found snuggled with him. He loves affection and warm laps and lets it be known with a loud purr.
