Hello! My name is Guava! 

I'm your typical playful social kitten! I'm learning that fingers and toes aren't toys. The way to help me continue to learn that would be to play with me using toys and then let me bunny kick them and then feed me! Kittens have a natural instinct to "hunt" so if I play, then attack the toy and then eat it fulfills my hunting desires and teaches me the difference between toys and humans! I LOVE humans! I think they are the absolute best! I would probably love me some kids too! I haven't been around dogs but I think with slow introductions I would be pretty good! I'm the kid who will always make you laugh. 

My litter mate was diagnosed with feline coronavirus which means I probably have it too. It's not as scary as it sounds. It's actually something super common in cats and usually isn't tested for. So what is it anyway? It can cause some irritation in the digestive tract so I could have bouts of runny poo but so far I haven't shown any symptoms and in all honesty I probably won't. The vet even said I'm safe to be around other kitties! 

If you have questions or are interested in me, p lease fill out an adoption application at www.ruffstartrescue.org.

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.

Please check out our website, www.ruffstartrescue.org for more details and additional pictures on any of our animals!
