Mom found that both cats were very affectionate to her, and to each other. In fact, the two cats seemed bonded. Mom also discovered that Saber was a spayed female, not a male at all. So Saber became Missy, and tan cat was named for their new domicile, Barney. Barney was an intact male.
Months went by, and the thought of the two cats living in the barn bothered the whole family, but J was busy getting settled into her new digs, and Mom was busy assisting. The cats were fine, but everyone knew they were indoor cats, who somehow had been left outside to fend for themselves. Did they get turned out together, or just met up and formed a partnership?...no one knows.
Last week, Mom found a lovely woman who was over the moon to have the two cats. She emails Mom often to say how delighted she is to have the pair. I don't know if Barney was neutered during his barn time; hopefully he was, or will soon be. Another successful rescue story, and this one was for a pair. Hurray for Mom! Hurray for Missy and Barney, who found their way right to the people who could help them.
