Hello, my name is Kierna, which means, little dark haired one.
I thought I had found my forever home but things didn’t work out. I’m still searching for a family that definitely has other furry friends. I like dogs especially big dogs. I like kitties too. I haven’t been around kids so maybe older kids would be best. I’m a typical kitty at that teenage stage. I love to play strong then curl up and cuddle. Sometimes I get so excited I bite my foster mom while playing. She calls them love bites. I came into the rescue at 5 weeks old but the size of a 2 week old kitten. I was tiny but eating on my own. I was treated for a URI that hit me several times. I’ve finally received a clean bill of health. I’m ready to find my fur-ever family!
In the meantime if you have questions or are interested in me, please fill out an adoption application at www.ruffstartrescue.org.
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.
Please check out our website, www.ruffstartrescue.org for more details and additional pictures on any of our animals!
