Hi! My name is Noir and I’m looking for my forever family. I was found on the streets and my foster mom has been taking care of me.
I love to play with string toys! I always pounce on it when my mom lets it wiggle on the floor. I try to take it away to a safe place, but it seems it is attached to my mom, so I drop it and we play fetch some more. I can be easily over stimulated, so lots of play time helps calm me down. I do love playing with my foster mom’s kitten under the door. Once we’re done playing, it's a good idea to make me chase after treats as this helps me calm down.
I am not scared by other cats or dogs. I am a bit leery of unexpected noises like a lawn mower and people going up and down creaky stairs. With time, I should get used to these noises.
I would love to be adopted into a house with another kitty or a fun-loving dog! The resident dog here is not a fan of my playful attitude.

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.
