*Bonded with Simon*

Hi!  This awesome litter consists of  Momma  Peaches and her awesome boys - Alvin, Simon, Theodore and Cotton.    

Cotton is especially bonded to his brother Simon and they need to be adopted together. Please click here to learn more about him. 

These are awesome kitties!  Like all kittens, they do lots of playing and lots of sleeping. They love to wrestle with each other and chase toys (real and imaginary) around the room.  They chase each other from one end of the house to the other - up and over the couch, diving under chairs, leaping over shoes.  They explore every nook and cranny they can find; the bathtub was a recent discovery.  They loved sliding around and discovering water :-)  Their play sessions are always followed by naps; any location will do for these tired kitties.  Most of the time, they are snuggled together in a pile but they have also been found in boxes, on iPads and in the dirty laundry basket.   

These brave and curious cats have spent a lot of time around kids and are very accustomed to laps, petting and interactive playing.  All four of them LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE being pet and snuggled.  These darlings love all people - young and old.  And with proper slow introductions, they got along great with the cat-friendly dog in the house. (Since momma cats are often protective of their young, none of this family has been introduced to other cats.  But once Peaches evolves out of 'protective' mode, it is likely (with slow and proper introductions) she and the kittens would get along with other cat-friendly cats. 

All of them have a perfect litter box record, use scratching posts, and are good eaters.  If you are looking to add maximum cuteness, tons of fun and many snuggles to your home, then these kitties might be for you! This family is with a foster in Minneapolis; after applying, you are welcome to visit/meet them. 

Sweet Cotton loves humans instantly and assumes they love him back.  He circles your feet in hopes of being picked up and if that does not work, he stands on his back legs with his paws on your shin and looks up at you and meows. Once picked up, he loves to sit on your shoulder and is happy to stay there whether you are sitting or walking.  Cotton is a "look before you leap" kind of kitten and has often been found in unexpected places. 

Cotton was from a local owner surrender. 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.
