Hi there! My mom, auntie and siblings transferred to Ruff Start a few weeks ago. I'm the shiest of my siblings, at least at first, but I warm up very quickly. I'm a typical kitten, full of energy and I love to play! My brother Kramer looks just like me 'cept I have the dark nose.
I love lounging and sunbathing in the window. I'd love to be adopted with one of my siblings or auntie, Miss Athena. In fact, if you adopt Miss Athena too, we would qualify for the Mom and Me Program.
My family and I were recently diagnosed with Feline Calicivirus. This is a viral disease common in large unvaccinated groups of cats. Calicivirus affects a cats immune system and can cause upper respiratory infections and oral infections. Thankfully, our kitty family is asymptomatic and at this time does not require any veterinary care. Calicivirus is species specific, so only affects cats. If we find a home with other cats, it is required the resident cats are fully up to date on their vaccines to ensure a low risk of spread.
Darcee was born in a small rural shelter on March 13th in western MN. 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.
