Sarah started out as a mama’s girl and was one of the slowest of her litter to warm up to me. She used to tremble in fear and hide her face if I pet her, but she has blossomed quite a bit the last few weeks!

She is one of the first to come over when I’m prepping wet food and she doesn’t care anymore if I touch her while she’s eating. She loves playing with toys. She will sometimes approach me to sniff curiously. Most of the time, she lets me pet her without cringing but she gets uncomfortable if I come in over her head with my hand. Sometimes when I try to pet her she still cringes away or hisses. I think she’d do best being adopted with one of her siblings, just because she is so very uncertain about everything. I do think she has it in her to be very affectionate with a human, but I’ll be able to tell better in a few weeks.

Look here at a cute video of me playing and another video of me warming up to treats here!

Sarah is from a local impound. 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.
