Ginger and Mocha are a plus-sized pair of cats who were surrendered to the Marin Humane Society (north of San Francisco) when their guardian could no longer care for them.

Tipping the scales at over 23 lbs. each, these two plus-size pussycats have hearts to match, and have spent the majority of their time snuggling together since they were surrendered to the MHS.

Ginger and Mocha require an extra special adopter who will keep them on a restricted diet, and monitor Mocha who is in the early stages of kidney disease.

Ginger and Mocha are big cats with big hearts to match, says Carrie Harrington, Communications Manager. Adopting a senior pair with health issues takes a very special and committed person. Were confident that Ginger and Mocha will find the loving home that they deserve.

The Marin Humane Society (171 Bel Marin Keys Blvd., Novato CA) will begin accepting applications for Ginger and Mocha on Tuesday morning (11/10/09). Shelter hours are 10 am to 5 pm. The adoption fee for Ginger and Mocha is $130 ($65 each as members of the MHS Senior Partners Program). For more information please call Adoptions at (415) 506-6225 or visit their website.

About Ginger

Handsome Ginger can work off calories by chasing toys and dining on a lo-cal diet. He will also benefit from regular grooming to keep his fur free of mats.

We think this friendly gentleman will happily bond with a new family who can give him the things he needs most in life: a sunny window with a cat perch (he’ll need a lift up initially!), some toys for entertainment and exercise, and plenty of grooming and petting sessions from you.

About Mocha

A perfect day for Mocha would include lazing in the sun, but she could certainly benefit from some active play time to help her with her figure.

Mocha enjoys playing with feathery wand toys, a great way to get her moving about.

Mocha is in the early stages of Chronic Renal Failure (CRF), a progressive, incurable disease that affects the kidneys ability to function. CRF cats can live for many months and sometimes even years without having major problems. Unfortunately, there is no way to predict how long it will be before Mocha begins to show clinical signs of CRF, like increased water drinking and increased urination. A low protein diet and subcutaneous fluids can keep cats in more advanced CRF reasonably comfortable for a period of time.
