Hi! My name is Uno because I'm number one! I was the first out of momma, the first to eat solid food, and the first to master the litter box. I know. I'm just that cool. I'm a trail blazer amongst my siblings and am very adventurous (much to my foster family's occasional frustration). Food is the absolute best and if I could eat wet food all day I just might. I tolerate being held but would much rather be running around. I also love climbing! Especially my foster papa. His back makes the best cat tree.
I love chasing my siblings and wrestling and would love to go home with my sister, Marianna . She's pretty much my best friend. We play, eat, even sleep together! I hope that you will consider taking us both home with you! Pretty please??
Here’s a synopsis of a day in my life from my foster family:
The day starts with breakfast, which Uno absolutely loves. He makes a beeline out of the pen the second the zipper starts opening and is usually the first one done. Then he runs around like a little whirlwind, tackling and wrestling his siblings the second they are done eating. Sometimes he'll try to push his siblings out of the way and steal their wet food too but it doesn't take much to discourage him from eating others’ food. Then it's back into the pen for nap time. About mid morning (about 9am) my fiance comes out and takes them out of the pen so they can run around and play and nap as much as they want. My favorite thing to do is sit in the enclosure and play with him. The kittens are generally out and about in the enclosure most of the day. If there isn't anyone around to watch them, we put them back in the pen. They have dinner around 7-8, play some more, and then get put back in the pen for the night at about 10. I also love picking him up and kissing his belly. I love it. He tolerates it. As Uno told you, he loves to escape the enclosure and he makes a beeline for the closest thing he can crawl under so he doesn't get caught … he’s a little devil at times.
Are you ready for some kitten fun? If so, Uno and Marianna are ready for their forever home!

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.
