WOODSTOCK – Batman, an all black kitten, got his name because of his allergy to hay. He had lost all his fur and looked like a bat when Gerry Langland, of Woodstock, found him in her barn last June.

Batman’s brother Peanut, a brown tabby, was named for his size; he was especially tiny when Langland found him. Both kittens were 3-week-old feral barn cats when Langland took them in. Now they’re 7 months old and looking for a forever home they can share.

Langland, has been fostering the kittens since she found them on June 15. She is working with the Humane Society of Shenandoah County to find the brothers a loving new home.

“They play together really well and are best friends,” she said.

Playful and affectionate, both kittens love attention. They like to play in forts and climb onto high spots.

“They’re explorers,” she said, “If you make a puzzle they try to figure it out.”

Peanut is very curious. He loves to cuddle and give kisses to anyone, she said.

Batman is a little shy at first but becomes a cuddle bug once he gets to know you, she said. He also loves to be brushed, and all of his fur has grown back since his stint living in the barn.

Fond of toys, the cats enjoy playing with balls and feathers, and they love running through a tunnel.

Now indoor kittens, they need a home where they can continue to be indoor cats. They have not been socialized with other animals or young children.

“Whoever takes them just has to be patient because they are scared. They haven’t been exposed to a lot of people,” Langland said.

They eat both dry and wet cat food and are still on kitten food. They also love their treats.

They are up-to-date with all their shots and have both been neutered.

There is no fee for these kittens. She just wants them to have a warm and safe home where they will be loved and cared for properly. Langland said she would like to keep the cats together. They have been together since birth and she doesn’t want to disrupt their bond.
