Hi there, my name is Cascade! I was born on a farm as part of an unwanted litter before I joined rescue. My siblings and I weren't socialized very well and our mama taught us that humans were a little scary, so as a result, I am a little nervous of people right now. My foster family is working hard to get me to learn they aren't scary, and it's working, slowly but surely!
I am the biggest kitten in our group and while I like to act tough, I'm sort of a scaredy cat! I do like to explore and climb new things, but panic sort of easily, so my humans have learned to take it slow with me. I also love feeding time, but only when my humans aren't around - I don't want them to see how much I eat! I gain a lot of confidence from other cats, so I will need a companion cat in my new home. I currently live with a dog and a human baby, so I am getting used to lots of new noises in my foster home, too. I am not bothered by the crying and the dog is a little scary, but he respects my space, so I bet soon we'll be okay friends. I also will need a patient adopter who is willing to take their time acclimating me to my new environment and has experience with shy kitties like me. I will hiss and gently swipe on occasion at my foster family when I'm panicking if they go too fast with me but for the most part I am a total dude who just likes to chill out! I'll even give you special licky kisses if you're lucky!
Because we are taking our time, they are still learning a few things about me.
In the meantime 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.
Please check out our website, www.ruffstartrescue.org for more details and additional pictures on any of our animals!
