Hi there, I'm Eponine! I joined rescue from a local impound from a hoarding situation with lots of kitties just like me and my sister, Cosette.
Because of our background, I was a little undersocialized when I first came to my foster home. I was very scared of everything, especially the humans! After some patience, love, and lots of treats, I am coming around though. I have a super loud purr and when I am comfortable with you I love to get pets and tell you how much I love it! I would love to have a family who loves me at my own pace and understands I might need a little more time to come around than your standard kitten.
I get along with my foster cat brothers really well, I absolutely look up to them for confidence! I also get along with my foster dog brother but we definitely don't cuddle or anything. I do think I'd do my absolute best in a home with another kitty, as they could show me the ropes and hopefully get me out of my shell a little sooner since my mama thinks I may regress a little in a new environment - I can be kinda shy. I may be a little nervous of kiddos because of the fact that they usually move suddenly and are loud, but I am very sweet and gentle so I could probably live with younger children if they were respectful of me needing my space.
As my foster family gets to know me more they will update my profile, but if you are interested in meeting or adopting 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!
