MARION (WSIL) -- Meet Gray and Nickol, Finding Forever Animal Rescue's longest residents.
"They had originally been adopted months ago. They were in that home for about a month or so and unfortunately returned and brought back to us. Now they've been with us for over a month again," says Becca Baird, director of Finding Forever Animal Rescue and Thrift Store.
Baird says they were returned due to family health issues, at no fault of their own, but they are a bit shy.
"When they were returned to us, that was a busier family. I think they're looking for a calmer household, they'd probably come out a lot faster. They like to just kind of hang out next to you. Otherwise, past that, they just want a calm environment to live out their life in."
The 7-year-old cats are the only adults left after an adoption event over the weekend.
"They like to hang out. They do play a little bit, so don't let them fool you. They want to play for a minute, and then they want to nap for the rest of the day."
Baird says, while they came in together, they're not necessarily a package deal. "We weren't sure if they were bonded, but they're definitely not. They are very happy, content in their own spaces, their own bed and scratching posts."
Gray and Nickol's adoption fees are sponsored and are only $40. They are also spayed and up to date on shots.
"If your kid is quieter, likes to hang out, read, things like that, they wouldn't be bad. Same thing for a dog who's a little bit older or doesn't mind cats, isn't going to be chasing them around of anything like that. Probably no puppies, otherwise I think they'd be absolutely fine with dogs if the dog just let them do their thing."
Baird says while these two are the only adult cats up for adoption right now, they have plenty of kittens available.
