Mom ‘n Me Program:  Adopt a kitten at regular price ($200) & mom comes with for just $25

Hi, my name is Calinda which means Sun in Hindi.  I originally came from the reservation out west.  My five kittens came with me and have been adopted.  The vetting staff thought I was pregnant when I went in to be spayed.  Luckily they were wrong.  Long story short, they discovered I have an enlarged colon and a hernia.  During my spay, the vet removed a few bad teeth & fixed my hernia.  I’m fully recovered and doing great.  My foster mom says I’m a protective momma kitty.  She noticed I seemed down after my kittens were adopted so she decided to introduce two other foster kittens to me, Socks and Boots.  I immediately perked up.  I love being a momma but no more babies in my future. Instead, I’m looking for a home with no other cats because I’d really like to be adopted with a kitten like Boots or Socks.  There are other cats in the house and I’m not a big fan.  There’s a dog too but we haven’t been introduced.  Slow supervised intros are recommended.  I’m shy at first but love to be pet. Im ready to find a home & humans for myself and a kitten, hopefully Boots or Socks since I already know them.
