Kitten siblings S'more and Graham Cracker are named after a famous twosome for a reason.

The Siamese rescue cats are inseparable. On Dec. 19, the duo arrived at Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe, California, via a rescue transport from one of Helen Woordward's shelter partners.

Even though the kittens were only weeks old when they arrived at Helen Woodward, one of the felines had "extreme damage from an untreated neonatal illness."

S'more has difficulty seeing because of untreated corneal ulcerations he got early in life. The ulcerations and conjunctivitis, which have since received treatment, left the kitten with heavy clouding and scarring on his eyes.

The staff at Helen Woodward is used to seeing young animals initially struggle with the transition into shelter life, but S'more is calm and collected after moving into Helen Woodward.

The rescue quickly realized S'more was gaining confidence from his sighted sister, Graham Cracker, who always stays close to her brother to help him navigate the world.

At Helen Woodward, Graham Cracker bravely explores new areas and meets new people first, and then S'more quickly follows behind her. Like this, the kittens have become friends with the vet techs at Helen Woodward, and now the cats are ready to use their social skills to woo an adopter.

"Their names definitely suit them," Breanne Sneddon, an animal health supervisor at Helen Woodward, said in a statement. "They are sweet as can be and have definitely come through a lot together in their short lives. Cats are normally terrified simply from being transported such a long distance, never mind having to do so with the limited vision S'more is dealing with. You can tell the bond between them is one formed by love and need."

Understandably, Helen Woodward is adopting the duo out as a bonded pair so the kittens aren't separated. S'more and Graham, who have spent the past few weeks growing and relaxing at Helen Woodward, will be available for adoption starting Feb. 2.

Helen Woodward is searching for an adopter who will set up their house to be safe for S'more and is willing to keep their furniture in the same place once S'more learns the pathways in his new house. S'more does not require any further treatment for his eyes. He and his sister are just looking for a loving home where they can grow up together.
