Mike and Ike are a bonded pair who must go to a home together. These brothers are two years old and enjoy attention. When they arrived at the shelter they were suffering from an allergic reaction to fleas, which caused hair loss – especially for Mike. Once their hair completely grows in again they will be beautiful.
Mike and Ike can be seen at the Colchester SPCA.
