Hi there, I'm Pocky! I’m the more outgoing kitten of my siblings, and I love to wrestle around and play. I enjoy typical kitten things, like chasing balls and swatting at dangly toys. Kitten tunnels and cat trees are fun too!
I use the litter box, but it would be good to start me in a smaller space when I come to your home so I know where to go. While I’m fantastic with respectful kids, no dogs or other cats for me, other than my mama.
From my foster:
Pocky and mama Milk Duds are being treated for feline coronavirus, but, don't worry, this isn't the same as the human kind! This is a very common viral infections that affects the GI tract, and follow up care with the future adopter's vet may be needed. We know this may sound scary, but it actually is very common! 80-90% of cats are infected with feline coronavirus, they are just never tested or diagnosed. You can read more about feline coronavirus here.
Since Milk Duds (mama) and Pocky are a bonded pair, they must be adopted together. They are a part of Ruff Start's Mom & Me Program! When adopted together, Milk Dud's adoption fee is only $25!
Pocky is from a South Dakota reservation and weighs 2 pounds. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an 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.
