These Bronte siblings are up for adoption!

Named after the Bronte siblings, Branwell and Charlotte are two sweet kittens up for adoption at the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.

Branwell and Charlotte are two of the most happiest kittens and would make wonderful companions, according to AWLA spokesperson Erin Shackelford. Branwell is a handsome black and white male kitten, and Charlotte is a beautiful gray and white female kitten.

Both kittens have been diagnosed with FeLV (feline leukemia virus), which is common in cats. FeLV cannot be cured, but those diagnosed can live a happy symptom free life with the right care!

“Their lifespan is usually shorter — the average lifespan of an FeLV+ kitten is 2-3 years, but they can live longer,” said Shackelford. “FeLV+ cats should not live with other cats who do not already have the disease, as the virus can be spread to other cats.”

These two fluff balls are happy, healthy and full of energy!

Like any other kittens they enjoy treats, especially Churus and are very playful. They love playing with feather wands and pipe cleaner toys.
