Hi there! I'm Dewey!
I am your typical adorable, snuggly, and playful kitten! Besides your usual kitten shenanigans, my brother and I are just the sweetest. We use our litter box great and are happy boys! When I was brought to RSR, they said I was positive for Feline Leukemia. It doesn't affect me much although much and I am a happy & healthy cat otherwise. This is a virus spread from cat to cat through their saliva. This is a virus that affects a cat's immune system. Although there is no treatment for FeLV, they can live happy, healthy, long lives. Because of the transmittable nature of FeLV, a positive cat should be the only cat in the home or with another FeLV positive cat. FeLV is only spread from cat-to-cat so there is no harm to my doggy counterparts.
If you are interested in getting to know me better, please fill out an adoption application at www.ruffstartrescue.org/adopt/adoption-application . An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.

Want to adopt a kitten? We highly recommend you consider bringing home two instead of one! Adopting kittens in pairs has been proven to be beneficial for cats’ emotional and behavioral well-being and greatly improves the likelihood of long-term adopter happiness as a result. Adopting more than one kitten also reduces the risk of “Single Kitten Syndrome” (also known as Tarzan Syndrome), a symptom of under-socialization during a kitten’s most formative weeks. Kittens who are under-socialized may develop aggressive tendencies toward both other animals and humans as they grow, creating lifelong behavioral issues for owners.
