Meet Tammy and her siblings Jocelyn & Zeke! These kittens were born to a feral momma and lived outdoors until they were trapped at around 7 weeks of age. At that point they were very unsocial with people - they would hiss and run and hide.
But lately they have been coming out of their shells - they are willing to eat right next to me and will climb in my lap to eat. They still hiss occasionally when startled but at other times they let me pick them right up with no problem. They play like crazy and are progressing every day. However, they would like owners who are sensitive to their shyness and willing to give them some patience. They are probably not ready for small children but they are likely to do very well with other animals.
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.
