Cheesecake and Faddie are two beautiful cream-colored cats, abandoned after being taken to the veterinarian.

Being confined to a cage for so long has made them overweight, but otherwise they are healthy. Spayed and 7 years old, they are presumably sisters.

While understandably a bit timid at first, they seem to get along with other cats, enjoy playing and respond sweetly to people. What they need now is love, exercise, proper diet and perhaps better names to suit slimmer figures in future!
