Hi my name is Mare, but my Foster mama calls me MareBear! When I came into foster I was a little aloof, and my foster parents didn’t know if I would be a lap kitty or not. Turns out I just get a little startled in new situations, and need someone that won’t pressure me like my foster parents. Because once I became comfortable I will chirp and wag my little but and rub my head and face on your legs, chin, body, anywhere you’ll let me!

I was rescued from a farm with some of my brothers and sisters, so I love to play and wrestle with them! I would love a home with not very small children who may startle me or not understand my boundaries. I would also love to have a fuzzy friend or two to play and cuddle and wrestle with, any forever home that will give me so many snuggles and all the love I deserve is all I could ever want!

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.
