Acorn is so sweet. Acorn’s foster mom was mistakenly told Acorn was a boy. Being such a gentle, pretty and sweet soul – lacking any kitty aggressiveness – Acorn’s mother had to look under the wraps and determine whether or not Acorn was truly a boy. And she discovered that indeed he was a she. Because Lady Acorn has the most beautiful eyes and has such an elegant look, her foster mom gave her the nickname Jewel. Acorn/Jewel is also friendly and affectionate. She loves to rub her head against you, and she is also quite the kisser! Acorn loves to give kisses - sometimes followed by a gentle love bite. Acorn enjoys a little wrestling and playing chase with the boys, but she is also very adept at entertaining herself while the boy kitties wrestle or play mouse. She prefers batting balls around and playing chase and running thru a play tunnel to wrestling. At night, Acorn sleeps flush to her foster mommy’s side – they keep each other warm. Sometimes she lies right on top of foster mommy’s legs. Acorn is just a wonderful and beautiful girl.
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.
