It’s that time of year: kitten season! For cat lovers, this time is a love fest of tiny fuzzy morsels of feline fun…but we also know that each litter of unwanted kittens offers a series of challenges. We’d like to introduce you to these five siblings: Blu, Carmen, Cece, Collins, and Spence. At 12 weeks old, they are making their debut and are available for pre-adoption now.
This small family came to SNAP because a SNAP volunteer’s husband heard about a litter kittens in need of care. One thing led to another, and now these little ones are spending their early life in the loving care of a SNAP foster. We got a chance to meet them the other day, and they are every bit as precious as their photos.
Brothers – and twins – Collins (adopted) and Spencer are always plotting their next kitten caper. Even though Collins is more independent than Spence, they are very closely bonded and we would like to see them adopted as a pair. Collins is full of active little boy energy, and likes to hunt toys…strings…and Spence! Collins is also particularly good at tackling his siblings when they least expect it. Spence is a little gentler, although he is never far behind his mischievous brother, and likes to nestle on his foster mother’s shoulder – or even on her head! – when she is seated. Both brothers like to scamper up their kitten scratching post, and like toys that jingle.
Every kitten litter needs an independent standout, and Carmen (Now Adopted!!) fulfills that role for this fuzzy clan. Carmen is a tiny tortie, beautifully marked in blacks, dark browns, and burnt oranges. She has wide amber eyes, set off by a swooping stripe of cream fur that stretches the length of her nose. Carmen has sweet tortie toes, mostly dark, but with single digits in the same unique cream color. Carmen loves to be in the middle of everything that’s going on, but isn’t aggressive when it comes to demanding attention. She patiently waits her turn, like the independent young lady she is. Like Spence, Carmen enjoys snuggling on her foster mother’s shoulder. Although Carmen enjoys her time with her siblings, she could be adopted by herself into a home that has other pets; she does not have to be placed with her siblings. Like every girl, Carmen is fascinated by sparkly things. She adores her toys, and anything that she can bat at that will move.
CeCe and Blu (now adopted) are a brother and sister team of Russian Blues mixes with sleek gray hair and glowing amber eyes. Even though they look nearly identical, you can tell them apart because CeCe, the girl, is smaller than Blu. Blu is all boy, and along with Spencer, competes for his foster mother’s attention and likes to ambush his kitten siblings. One of the kittens’ favorite games is to bat at the strings on their foster mother’s hoodie. CeCe is tiny, and very gentle. Recently at an immunization, we tucked CeCe inside one of our volunteer’s coat collar because it was cold, and the tiny kitten closed her eyes and took a nap. The two siblings like to groom each other, and should be adopted as a pair.
All of these kittens are available for pre-adoption now. They have been spayed/neutered, but have one more round of shots to go before they are ready to go to their forever homes (as of February 20). We’ll be getting more pictures of them soon, and would love to introduce you.
