Adoption Fee: $200
My family named me KitKat because I’m a sweet girl. I like to explore, climb up high, and watch everything. I prefer if you respect my boundaries and let me sniff your hand before you touch me. I like pets on my head best, and think being brushed is wonderful. My foster family has kids; I’m patient with them, and like it when they read with me. I have been supervising my foster dad while he works and alternate between napping in the sun on his desk and paying very close attention to his mouse. I’m very tidy with my litter box, and love hard cat treats and dry food. I lived with other cats before I came to Ruff Start. I would do best with a family who can be gentle with me while I open up more, get used to feeling safe, and where I can have more naps in the sunshine.
We highly encourage adopting kittens in pairs for their emotional and behavioral well-being. It is an amazing experience to watch the lifelong bond that forms and that you get to be a part of. We are not trying to push more kittens out the door. If you are thinking of adopting a single kitten we want to prepare you for behaviors you will almost certainly see and have only the kittens’ best interest at heart, and your satisfaction as an adopter and pet parent. At Ruff Start Rescue part of our mission involves education and we would like to make sure you are making an informed decision and hopefully avoiding any issues that can come up. Here is a link to more information on Tarzan Syndrome (Single Kitten Syndrome) and another on the benefits of adopting kittens in pairs.
An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal.
