Hi my name is Katie Leigh!  I had a RuffStart to life living outside with my brother, trying to find food on our own. A nice person brought us to animal control, but it was loud in the shelter so thank goodness a foster showed up and took us to her home where there was warm beds and all the food we could eat!

My foster says I'm a sweet little girl with beautiful markings. Once I realized I didn't need to be scared I let her pet me which turned me into a purring machine :) I'm super curious and love to check out my new surroundings. Playing is one of my favorite things to do, I especially love the feather toys, chasing string toys & climbing up to the top of the scratching post.

I really like to curl up to sleep by my brother and would love to have a friend in my forever home :) My foster says I have a good appetite and always use my litterbox. I am a quiet girl and like to watch everyone, including the 2 dogs that like to sniff my nose! If I sound like a good fit for your family, please reach out to meet me!

Katie Leigh 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.
