Taffy and Espresso were rescued from a large cat colony in Glidden, Wisconsin, and came to Helping PAWS Pet Rescue for a better life. Since then, they've been nurtured in a wonderful indoor foster home and have become fast friends. Taffy is a petite and pretty light-orange tabby who loves to be petted. Espresso is a bit more independent and a little shy, but enjoys attention from people. Helping PAWS Pet Rescue, Inc., 715-513-6106,
