Radco here! I joined the rescue in August, as a bottle-fed kitten estimated at 2 weeks old. I was rescued from an overpopulated cat colony with my siblings. I've been through a lot in my short life so far. My siblings and I were named after truck toppers/auto shops because we were found living under a truck topper.

I give the best Eskimo kisses! I like to act all big and strong, but I can scare easily and will hide behind my foster mom. I'm a lover, not a fighter. I've gotten so big and strong! My favorite spot to hang out is on the shoulders of my humans. Exploring is the name of the game. I like to go exploring and play hide and seek.

The vet says my siblings and I have what's called kitty coronavirus. Don't let that scare you. All it means is that I need is a loving human to provide me with a solid food plan, vitamins (probiotics) and a daily routine to help prevent stress. You may notice runny or softer poo if I become stressed in my environment.

In a typical home environment where there is not a lot of stress, there is low risk for cats 2 years of age to 12 years of age of contracting coronavirus from a carrier cat (assuming they are otherwise healthy with no immune deficiencies.) Cats under 18 months or over 12 years or cats with any disease (renal disease, diabetes, herpes virus carriers, etc.) are at a higher risk if introduced to a coronavirus carrier. In the event medications or prescription foods are sent home with your adoptive cat, we recommend setting up an appointment soon after adoption with your veterinarian to continue any future care. We recommend the use of probiotics daily to ensure optimal gut health .

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.
