Hi, I'm Culvert Cal! You can just call me Cal, though. You're probably wondering how I got my odd name. You see, I had found myself all alone as a stray 8 week old kitten the Friday of Labor Day weekend and as my luck would have it I was running down the road in front of Ruff Start Rescue! I was pretty scared and when rescue staff members spotted me and tried to catch me I ran into the woods across the street and hid in the culvert going under the road. One nice staff person army crawled into the muddy wet culvert to rescue me and that's how I got my name! When I was found I was underweight, dehydrated, and had puncture wounds from a predator I escaped - I was so scared I don't even remember that part of my life but that's what the nice vetting team had to say.

Fast-forward a couple of weeks and I am a brand new kitten! I'm brave and love to play and explore in my foster home. I LOVE other cats and get along with dogs, too! I'd really like to be adopted by someone who has at least one other cat for me to be friends with. Having all the food I need to grow into a handsome strong cat is awesome, I've gained weight and use my litter box perfectly too. My favorite toys are currently ping-pong balls and balls that spin around on a track. After I'm tired from playing, my favorite thing to do is curl up with my foster humans to snuggle and relax while they pet me. I show my appreciation by purring and giving kisses!

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.
