Hello I'm RJ. Before Ruff Start Rescue I was living in a barn with no human interaction other than getting fed. I'm learning how to do normal kitten things like playing with toys and being held. My foster mom is teaching me that it's okay to be held, I even liked it so much I fell asleep in her arms! She said I've been doing so good since I've been with her. I'm working on litter box training. I still have to learn how to be a spoiled kitten, but "mom" says she'll teach me! Please keep in mind my transition from feral to a house kitten will take some time and patience, but I'll be a purrfect companion with a little time and love. Located in Clear Lake, MN.

RJ was found as a stray. 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.
