Hi there, my name is Patchett!
I initially joined rescue with my sister Pringle when we were live trapped on someone's property. I had never interacted with humans before and was understandably very scared of people as a result! Luckily, my foster mom was very patient with me and has given me a few months to come around. Now, I'm basically your usual spunky and sassy little kitten dude!
In my foster home, I live with my sister Pringle, two other cats, a dog, and a toddler. It's a busy place and I think it is a lot of fun usually! I coexist with the dog but I don't really like him too much, I'd probably prefer a home without dogs in it. I absolutely need to live with another cat though, because I gain a lot of confidence from other kitties and I love to play with them! I would love if my sister Pringle could get adopted with me, but I think I would be okay to go to a home without her as long as I have another young, energetic kitty friend to play and snuggle with.
My new family will have to understand that I am not necessarily a "typical" kitten in that I am still tentative with new people until I trust them due to my lack of socialization when I was very young. Young kids are still sort of scary for me even though I live with a toddler, so if I live with them they need to give me my space when I am nervous. Overall though I absolutely LOVE my humans and act like their little shadow once we bond, plus I love to purr loudly when I'm getting pet and give loving nibbles when I'm hungry! I overall just need a patient family who lets me grow on my own time.

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.
