Name: Loon *Bonded with mom Sparrow*
DOB: June 21, 2020
Adoption Fee: $150
Hi my name is Loon! When I was born in foster care, my mom took the very best care of me, but she got sick when I was only 5 days old. It was then that I had to start getting bottle fed by my foster parents. Thankfully, even though she couldn’t feed me, my mama was still able to help clean me, keep me warm, love me, and teach me the vest best kitty manners. Because I’ve been handled by people since I was born but also had my mama around me, I’m very good with being held, love to snuggle, and am just an overall amazing little boy.
I love to get the zoomies and run all over and play, but then come plop in your lap and sleep. I will fall asleep sitting up, and my little head will bob backwards, which I have to admit is just the cutest. I had a little umbilical hernia when I was born, but that’s all fixed now and I’m on the mend. I have the most nicknames of all my brothers and sisters, but the one used the most is charmer. I adore attention, and will soak up all the love and attention you want to give me.
I absolutely adore my mama, and still love to snuggle up with her, kneed her belly, and sleep and play with her. My mama is a beautiful young lady who didn’t have the best start in life, but with me by her side she opens up and becomes braver and more trusting. She will also be your built-in babysitter if you have to leave the house, because she will always keep her eye on me! If you want a pair of kitties that will love and snuggle each other forever, we are your perfect pair.
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.
