This week, we have not one, but two Pets of the Week, both of which are hoping their second stay at the Vanderburgh Humane Society will be their last. Meet Noel and Mistletoe.

Noel and Mistletoe's Story

Noel and Mistletoe are a bonded brother and sister who first arrived at the Vanderburgh Humane Society when they were kittens roughly three years ago. They were adopted together at the time and recently found their way back to the shelter. While the VHS didn't share the details behind their return, they do say it is through no fault of their own.

As you can see in the video above, both are very playful, but like most cats, enjoy spending some time snoozing as well.

What Are Bonded Animals?

According to House with a Heart:

Bonded pairs of animals have generally grown up together. While often siblings, non-siblings can bond as well. Although every animal can develop bonds, there are times when these bonds are so close that one or both animals decline when not with the other.

While you could adopt either Noel or Mistletoe individually, it is preferred you take both. And, right now would be a great time to get both as the VHS has partnered with the Bissell Pet Foundation to offer discounted pet adoptions. For a limited time, the adoption fee for kittens, cats, and dogs 6 months and older is only $50. Normally, the adoption fee for Noel and Mistletoe would be $80 each.

If you'd like to get a jump on the adoption process for Noel and Mistletoe, or any of the animals the VHS offers that you might be interested in, you can fill out some of the paperwork in advance on the VHS website.
