D.K., or Dark Knight, can be a purr monster just like his sister, Zosia.  At other times he can be a ball of spit fire with his hissing. DK is still getting used to his humans and is taking a little bit longer to trust those around him. Once the trust starts, he does like to purr for affection and to rub up against your legs.

D.K. plays at night with his siblings and hides during the day. He will for sure need a playmate to help him come out of his shell more and feel comfortable in his new home. D.K. is okay with being picked up for short periods of time but does not crawl into laps on his own just yet. 

He does great with other cats and kids of all ages. He hasn't met a dog that we know of...we'd  just need to see how he does. He’s litter box trained and uses the cat box appropriately.  D.K. is ready for a family to go slow and steady with this him and show him lots of love!

D.K. was a stray from Minneapolis. 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 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.
