Vega C1873

DOB 5/13/22 · Adoption Pending

Introducing the FORD and CHEVY litters. These babies had a really rough start; they were born within days of each other (FORDS on 5/10/22, CHEVYS on 5/13/22), but one of the mamas disappeared and the other was not up to the task of caring for both litters.

By the time they were brought to the shelter, they were near starvation and had almost given up on life. They were quickly parceled out to various foster families, where they were encouraged to eat and drink (and in many cases, taught how), and nurtured back to health. We lost three along the way, but there are 11 survivors to be celebrated - and nearly all of them are ready for their forever homes now! Most have fostered with dogs, and because of the intense care they required, they are all very people-oriented and curious and playful.

The FORDS include:

FIESTA (ADOPTED)
FOCUS (ADOPTED)
FUSION, female black & white, black tail & ears
MUSTANG, male black & white, black head, white cheeks
FLEX, female white with black, right half of head black
TAURUS, male black & white, black spot on L ear

The CHEVYS have:

VEGA, female black & white, black nose
BEL AIR, female, mostly grey with white feet & chest
CHEVELLE (ADOPTED)
CORVAIR (ADOPTED)
MALIBU, female, black & white with 2-dot mustache; Malibu is the only one we are not sure will be ready to go home by 8/20, she is still quite a bit underweight.

We just love the unique looks of this group, and love even more their survivor spirits! Welcome one or two home, and you will see how special they are.

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 pets arrive spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped and vaccinated. Adoption fee for Vega is a suggested minimum of $65 (more gratefully accepted). 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!
