*Bonded to Marshmallow*

My name is August and I am the cutest little boy you ever did see! Unlike my other brothers, I'm more of an ashy orange which makes me stand out from the pack. I love being picked up and given kisses, even being held like a baby! My purr is loud, just like my love. I'm not quite as energetic as some of my other siblings, but I still absolutely love playing. I’ve been known to be a little territorial over some of my toys but have no real rhyme or reason to which ones I am defensive over … I just want what I want! I was the first of my siblings to learn that climbing is fun! One of my favorite things to do is climb my foster papa and then lay on the back of his neck.

I get lonely if I don't have my sister Marshmallow with me. Because we're a bonded pair, we must go home together. We love to play and nap together. We even eat next to each other! If you're looking to add two adorable, loving, and fun kittens to your home, look no further!

Want to adopt a kitten? We are so glad you're considering 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.
