Two kittens are so happy to have found each other, and hope for a dream home together.
Q-tip and Tina are best of friendsPenny Richards
Quentin (Q-tip) and Tarantina (Tina), two 3-week-old kittens, crossed paths when they were rescued along with 24 other kittens by Animal Welfare League of Arlington (AWLA) in Arlington, Virginia.
They were the same age and size, and both needed a friend. When they were paired up in foster care, they instantly hit it off as if they had always been siblings. Penny Richards, a foster volunteer of AWLA, welcomed them into her home a week later.
“Quentin (a blue colorpoint) was a big baby, and he absolutely refused to wean. He would yell at me for his bottle. Meanwhile, Tina (a tabby) had been eating from a bowl for a while,” Penny told Love Meow.
They are not from the same litter but share an adorable bondPenny Richards
Q-tip has a diva attitude since the day he set paw in his foster home. He enjoys the company of his people and never hesitates to tell them loudly what he wants.
“He is incredibly loving and constantly purrs, and loves to cuddle on your lap, but he wants all of your attention all the time. He yells at me if I stop petting him when he’s on my lap.”

His unbridled energy rubs off on his sister from another mister, and together they create all sorts of antics, ruling the roost. “When he’s not cuddling, he’s running around like a wild child with his best friend, Tarantina.”
The two share a very special bond and have been joined at the hip since the moment they found each other. “Their energy is so well matched, and their personalities complement each other,” Penny told Love Meow.
“Quentin would absolutely struggle as a solo kitten, but Tina is everything he needs in a companion.”
They do nearly everything together — cuddling, clamoring for attention, and wrestling one another before passing out in a nap together.
Q-tip has a voracious appetite and is a real food lover. “He may only eat dry food, but that boy would protect it with his life. When his bigger foster friends were still here, he would lie his whole body across the bowl and growl at anyone who dared to come near his food!”

Tina is a petite girl with a mighty personality, and Q-tip is a vocal boy who won’t take no for an answer. They make a dynamic duo, partners in mischief.

“Tina is a fun, independent lady who likes to come over for some head scratches and loves to perch on my feet. And then Quentin, ‘chaotic energy’, is a wild ride,” Penny shared with Love Meow.
“Quentin will need to go home with Tina in order to prevent him from going full-blown ‘solo kitten syndrome’. His fur is only going to get longer, and will require regular maintenance — daily brushing to avoid mats building up in his fur.”
