Copper and Rusty

  • Breed: DSH- orange tiger
  • Gender: Male
  • DOB: 0018-04-28
  • Size: Medium
  • Hair: Short

Copper and Rusty were rescued from an Iowa animal control facility where they were scheduled, along with their litter mates, to be euthanized. HELP stepped in and they made their way to safety in Illinois. They look so much alike they could be twins. We had to mark Rusty’s ear so we can tell them apart. They love to play together, so I would like for them to be adopted as a pair. Copper likes to look out the window to watch the birds and butterflies (and squirrels, and chipmunks). Rusty loves to bat his toys around and carry a bottle cap in his mouth (his favorite toy). They are very sweet and when it is time for bed, I say “time for bed babies” and they follow me up the stairs. They get along with the other fosters in the house. They have not been around dogs, but with their sweet disposition they should be fine with a gentle dog. They are completely litter boxed trained.
