DOB: 5/26/2022 ADOPTION FEE: $150 During an afternoon walk, we stumbled on these itty-bitty kittens hanging around someone’s front yard. We immediately knocked on the door, but there was not answer and left a note. The next day we returned and spoke to the property owner. Momma cats (yes there were two) showed up as strays last year and she was not sure how to get help. We didn’t realize how many there were until we started trapping, using a large cage, tethered to a rope and closing it once a couple were inside safely. They were transferred into a carrier, and we started all over again. On the first day we were only able to secure 7 and made it our mission to return for the last remaining black kitten. After two days, BAM, he landed! Both momma cats have been TNR’d and are back to the property – no more babies for them. Peanut is the smallest of his littermates. He was more vocal when we first brought him indoors, we always wonder if he was calling for his mama. We were counting every ounce, every day to make sure he hit the two-pound mark in order to be neutered. Peanut is opening up more, he is quiet, shy, gentle and growls softly when eating soft food, he does not mess around and keeps packing on the weight. It gives us great joy to see him eagerly chowing down. He enjoys wresting with the kittens, even though they are twice his size - he’s a little tough guy. Come meet this beautiful nugget! Applications to adopt can be found on our website lapcats.org. All of our cats have tested negative for FELV and are fully vaccinated.
