Hey! Pom Pom here. I am playful, sweet, love pets and especially snuggles at bed time!  However, I don't like being picked up and held; it just doesn’t feel safe and comfortable for me at this time. I am good with dogs as long as they are respectful to me.

I come with some extra special things about me! My body doesn’t do well under stress so a nice calm and safe environment with a furry friend who is also seeking a companion would be best. FYI, I have been living with SJ, another pal looking for his forever home; in case you are looking for two amazing fur babies, check out his profile too! 

If I get too stressed out my bladder gets sensitive and I experience pain and discomfort. It’s best to feed me a urinary health diet and have water fountains and fresh water bowls to help keep my body in check. I’m a good boy about the litter box, no worries there. I do tell you with my meows and body language if something is not right and my foster mom would be happy to share her tips on how she’s helped keep my body in check through this. 

I am seeking a forever family who would be attentive and willing to love all that comes with me. It’s also important to me that I find a family who will not think of me as an afterthought, but be a part of all of their decisions now and in the future, should life change. Love, Pom Pom.

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.
