Two’s Company: Two Kittens are Better Than One

When Allison B. visited the ASPCA Adoption Center in Manhattan for the first time earlier this month, she left with not one, but two kittens. Allison had considered adopting a cat for several months, and lucky for these kitties, she decided to bring home a pair. She named them Sierra and Tobias.

“My boyfriend and I have wanted a cat since we moved into our apartment back in October,” Allison says.  “I was visiting family for the Fourth of July and on the drive home I just decided it was time. My aunt is a cat lover, and she was the one who suggested getting two.”

While Allison had been to other animal shelters before, this was her first visit to the ASPCA.

“The adoption process was very easy,” she says. “The staff was knowledgeable and friendly.”

Allison tells us it has been smooth sailing with Sierra and Tobias.

“Sierra and Tobias adjusted very quickly to home,” Allison says. “I think since they had each other it made it a lot easier for them to feel comfortable.”

We’re thrilled these two feline friends found a loving home where they can enjoy each other’s company!

Double the fun!
Good job on getting 2!


How wonderful, for you and the kitties - they remind me of two tiny grey and white kittens that were put in our driveway in a box that was ducktaped shut. Named them Tammy and Toby. Toby died from Saddle Thrombosis when he was 7-1/2 years-nearly broke my heart, and sadly, Tammy died of the same thing when she was 13. May your little sweethearts have a long and healthy life. Cats are the most wonderful companions.


God Bless You Both...and enjoy your new family !!

Our two youngest cats are brothers, Cato and Clouseau. They love each other and amuse us endlessly.


Lucky pair of kittens. Enjoy them.


We had one cat for 17 years that was a stray a friend found in the country. The 3 of us had a very happy life for those 17 years. After she died, we adopted 2 kittens...sisters. They are 2 years old now and I can say that it is better to have 2. Twice as much joy and love, but also they provide company to each other when we are not home and play together. I am very glad you chose to give a loving home to 2 kitties and know you will all be happy together. CONGRATS!


So cute + So cute = ADORABLE


So adorably cute I'm thinking of getting a kitten but I feel bad about it being lonely so I might get a pair.


Yes, two kitties are better than one for sure! ; - )


Cats are awesome, I'm getting a new cat next week, I can't wait.
