Hera (shown here) and Athena are 16- and 15-year-old mother and daughter. They would like a home together, as they have always lived together. They came to the shelter when their owner became unable to care for them.
As older cats, it will probably take longer for them to be adopted, but they are beautiful, sweet cats who deserve a good home for the rest of their lives.
Hera and Athena are spayed, microchipped, tested for FIV, and vaccinated. They are at the El Dorado County Animal Services shelter in Meyers, along with many other dogs and cats who are waiting for their new homes.
Go to the Tahoe animal shelter’s Facebook page to see photos and descriptions of all pets at the shelter.
