Hope and Nani - two very special kitties who are looking for a very special home together.
Dear Hope came to King Street Cats from a city shelter in November 2019. A sweet, shy girl she suddenly appeared at a storage facility and the folks that found her knew she needed help. She was scared and not feeling at all well.  They got her started on the road to recovery and we took one look at that face and said yes of course we will help. Hope is FIV+ but we knew that as lovely as she is that wouldn’t be a problem getting her adopted. 
It took some time but Hope finally felt better, she got comfortable around the other cats and visitors were taking notice. Then one day in early March 2020 we noticed Hope was having some pretty bad skin issues. After a couple of months of tests, special diets, biopsies and multiple visits to a specialist we discovered Hope has some allergies to several things that caused the difficulties and she needs allergy medication for life. She no longer needs the special diet but can’t have any dry food. She is feeling so much better now especially because she met her absolute best friend, Nani, while she was recovering and they are inseparable!
Just about the time Hope started having trouble King Street Cats got a request from a shelter to take a young cat who was having some odd breathing issues but was so adorable it was impossible to say no. 
Nani, which means “beauty” in Hawaiian, stole the hearts of everyone at King Street Cats as soon as she arrived. After giving her a little time to rest we took her to a cardiologist and got some not great news. Nani was diagnosed with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy and needs to be on heart medication for life. Nani is not only beautiful and charming, she is a trooper and doesn’t let all this stop her from enjoying all the attention she gets. Most of all though, she loves playing with very best friend, Hope.
Hope and Nani love to wrestle, play chase and knock toys around just like every young cat. They take their medicines like champs and bring a smile to everyone who meets them. Now they are have their paws crossed that they can find that one, extra special family who will take a chance on two extra special kitties. We think Hope and Nani deserve a chance to live in a home where they are loved and can show their forever family how wonderful they are.
After all, don’t we all need Hope and Nani (beauty)  in our lives!
