Scout and Murphy, two brothers, are looking for a new home. They are 18 month old neutered male cats. They were rescued after their feral mother abandoned them at 10 days old in March of 2013 in Mesa, AZ. Their owners prefer to keep them together, if possible. They weigh 11.4 and 12 lbs and are current on their annual vaccinations as of August 2014. Their owners are an elderly couple who find themselves traveling more and more and cannot be home for the cats. For more information, please contact Roger or Carol at 952-891-8650.
