*Bonded with August*

Hey everyone. My name is Marshmallow and I am just as sweet as my name sounds! I love hanging out with my foster dads and laying in their laps. I also love chasing my siblings around and jumping on them! I can, and will, chew on your toes if you give me the chance. Climbing is super fun, although I can be a little hesitant of heights sometimes.

I like digging in my litter box. If I were a human, I'd be an archaeologist. Other things I like to do are play with wand toys, chew on my siblings, and snuggle with my best bud August.  We are practically joined at the hip and would need to find a home where we could be together.

Some endearing qualities you should know about me are that I will play while laying in your lap and I’m the most well behaved of my siblings. I make my foster family smile as I can be a little clumsy. I hope that you are ready to help me and my brother August find our forever home!

Marshmallow is from St. Paul. 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 are glad you will 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.
