WINCHESTER — Morris, a 3-year-old orange tabby, and Wheeler, a 6-year-old brown tabby, are looking for a new place to call home.

Kamryn Dixon, an animal caretaker at the Fredrick County Esther Boyd Animal Shelter in Winchester, said Morris and Wheeler are usually friendly around people and other animals, but they can be a little wary of other cats at first, and Morris is known to nibble on people.

“He doesn’t bite people, but he’ll let you know when he’s had enough,” Dixon said.

She said the cats were brought in to the shelter in May.

“Morris has a urinary tract problem and needed special food,” Dixon said.

She also said that Wheeler has declawed front paws, and he could also be anxious around other cats, but he has been well behaved around other cats since his arrival at the shelter.

Dixon noted that Morris and Wheeler are a “bonded pair,” which means that they would be difficult to split up because of the lifelong bond the two cats share. The adoption fee for both cats is $30.
