I'll let you in on a little secret – P.K. and Patchie are both 15 years old, but don't tell them that. They insist that they are still quite youthful and don't look or act their age. P.K., a short-haired orange tabby, is the more outgoing of the two, while Patchie, a short-haired thin tortie, is a bit more demure. These gorgeous girls are bonded and would like to be adopted together into a quiet, adult-only household.

P.K. and Patchie are available for adoption from ASAP Cats, a volunteer-based, non-profit organization that cares for cats and kittens awaiting adoption at the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter. The shelter is located at 5473 Overpass Road, off Patterson Avenue. The shelter’s hours are Monday-Friday from 9 am to 4:30 pm and Saturdays from 10 am to 4 pm. Their telephone number is 683-3368.
