What is a Bonded Pair?
Bonded pairs reflect the natural instinct of cats to form a pack. Kitties have the reputation of being aloof, but they are very social animals. Like their ancestors in the wild, cats thrive in a pack where there is a stable social structure that provides comfort and security.
How do Bonded Pairs Occur?
Observant kitty caretakers get to know the cats in their care. They recognize personality differences, likes and dislikes which enable them to identify pairs of cats that get along particularly well. Once special bond is observed, kitty caretakers try to keep the friends together knowing that bonded pairs do better together. In fact, when separated, bonded pairs often fail to thrive since they are so unhappy. A kind and observant kitty caretaker recognizes a bonded pair and encourages (or requires) dual adoption for the best interest and health of the cats.
