Jackie is a very shy, timid young girl and is still building trust with her family. She likes to watch what is going on from afar and see how her siblings interact with people. Jackie likes to play with her siblings at night and hide and cuddle with her litter mate during the day. Jackie will need another kitty playmate to help her come out of her shell more and feel comfortable in her new home.
Jackie is currently okay with being picked up for short periods of time but likes to stay close to the ground. I have not heard her purr much just yet or rubbing up against her humans for affection. Jackie is a work in progress! She has done well with other cats, kids of all ages and can be tested with a cat friendly dog if needed. Jackie uses the cat box appropriately. Jackie is looking for a family to go slow and steady with this her and show her lots of love!

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.
