Is They Is or Is They Ain’t Your Kitties?

LaVerne, Maxene, and Patty were living in a filthy trailer in North Carolina that was packed to the brim with junk. There was little room for them to run and play in the cramped quarters, and the cats were using cockroaches for toys. When one of their owners developed allergies, she called PETA for help. We readily agreed to take on this talented mother-daughters act, and they quickly became the sweethearts of PETA’s Sam Simon Center.

Laverne, Patty, and Maxene: Mother and Daughter Cats in Need of Home

Mom LaVerne is a striking ebony beauty who’s about a year and a half old and very outgoing and gracious with her “fans.” Her kittens, Maxene and Patty, are about 4 months old. They had a little bit of stage fright at first, but with several performances in front of small but appreciative audiences—after which they were showered with rave reviews and bouquets of catnip—they’re now blossoming into affectionate, playful young ladies.
