Don't let the sweet name fool you, this girl is spicy. We lovingly refer to her as Sassy Pants. She and her litter were born to a feral mom. They had no human interaction for the first 8 weeks of their life. While all of her litter mates found homes, she's still looking. She is still mistrustful of people, but is very slowly warming up. She will need special adopter willing to work with her on trust. She does great with other cats/kittens. She'd do best in a home with another confident cat to show her the way. If you have questions or are interested in me, p lease 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.
