Chile & Pepper
Hi everyone! Our names are Chile and Pepper and we are gorgeous buff tabby brothers approximately six months of age. We, along with our two other siblings, were living in a backyard in Chalfont. Our mom had left leaving us behind but thankfully the homeowners were kind and feeding us. They wanted a better life for us though so they called Kitty Junction for help. We both had upper respiratory infections and eye infections but with the help of our foster mom giving us medication we were feeling better in just a few weeks.
Chile and Pepper hit the jackpot when they found their new forever home with Nancy and Joe! Shortly after their adoption, Nancy noticed that Pepper was having some mouth issues affecting his eating and called us right away. We were able to have him seen by our vet who diagnosed him with a rare condition with his salivary gland. He had a cavity in his subcutaneous tissue underneath his tongue that was filling up and not draining. It literally forced his tongue to one side preventing him from being able to eat. Thankfully we were able to use our donations from the Betty White challenge to have our vet perform the surgery he needed to drain the cavity and install a permanent draining hole within the cavity to prevent it from happening again. Thank you so much Nancy and Joe for loving these boys unconditionally and for your understanding and patience throughout Pepper’s unexpected diagnosis! They have renamed them George and Fred after one of their favorite tv shows and say that they love them so much They are adorable, lovable and so sweet! They sleep with them at night and one of their favorite past times is watching the wildlife out their big back sliding glass doors:) As you can see from their pictures, Fred and George are so happy in their new home together and what a difference between their “before” and “after” pictures!
