Rufus C1180

Introducing the Cartoon Litter kittens; they were born 3/19/18, and came to the shelter when their owner surrendered them with their mother, Mini Moons, at 3 months old. Our volunteers are hard at work socializing these cuties, and they should all make wonderful companions for pretty much any type of home. Because they never spent any time outside with their mother to learn street smarts, they are more likely to run TOWARD danger than to save themselves, so should remain indoor-only cats for life.

Rufus, a tuxedo grey kitten, is often seen at the edge of a gathering of playful kittens watching and waiting her turn with the wand toy. She has an independent nature and will often walk away from the center of the action to seek stimulation elsewhere in the room, whether it be engaging with another kitten, perching up high to watch the action, or playing with one of the many toys available. She is good with respectful children and adults, and seems to enjoy being petted and loved on for short periods of time. When she has had enough she will leave, often returning shortly after for more. We think Rufus will blossom in a home environment where she can be the focus of attention, or share your affections with another playful kitten.

We'd love to see all kittens go to homes that have another young, playful kitten, or to send 2 of them out as a pair (which gives you a great pair discount rate), but we do not require pair adoptions. If you prefer to adopt just one, and you don't have a similarly aged kitten at home already, please read our information on Single Kitten Syndrome. Then, when you apply for a single kitten, please let us know in the "Comments" field how you plan to deal with the "kitten crazies."

All kittens arrive spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped and with all age-appropriate vaccinations; most will need one or two booster vaccinations after arrival, and rabies vaccination between 4-6 months of age. Adoption fee is suggested minimum $65 (more gratefully accepted). Discount available for pair adoptions! All pets are placed with a 30-day money-back trial period, to give pet and family enough time to discover any unknown allergies or other conflicts. Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your donation to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!
