Hi, my name is Yam! I was found as a stray with 2 other kittens & some nice people from Ruff Start gave us a home. I was the most skittish of the litter, I would always hide when the foster would come in to give us food. I am still a little shy, but my foster mom is so very proud of how far I have come :) I come to my foster mom for attention & even climb on her lap. I want to be in the living room curled up on the couch by everyone. My foster mom say's I have the cutest little squeak of a voice! I always use my litterbox with no problems. I like to have food out so I can eat when I want. I am living with 2 adults that have 2 dogs, that I don't mind, but I will hiss/swat at them if they chase me. I haven't met any kids yet, but with slow introduction I'm sure I would love to play with them. My favorite toys are balls, soft toy mice, & string toys. My foster mom gives me lots of attention & I snuggle right up to her. Once I get to know you my motor won't stop running & I'm such a happy girl :) If I sound like a good fit for your home, I would love to meet you! Thank you for considering me as a possible family member :)

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.
