*Bonded with Miss Dolly*

Little Rhett is an incredible survivor, the lone kitten who made it out of a litter of five born to Miss Dolly in mid-April of this year. They are bonded, and must be adopted together. This makes Miss Dolly eligible for the Mom & Me program, where Dolly's adoption fee is only $25.

A little background:

Little Rhett was the only surviving kitten in the litter. He received attention from RSR vetting just in time! Due to a respiratory virus that was spreading among the barn cats, he suffered a respiratory infection, an eye infection, and infected rear foot pads. The vet prescribed oral antibiotics, antibiotic eye drops, and daily Hibiclens soaks for his paws. Remarkably, Little Rhett made a full recovery and blossomed into a loving little companion. He craves companionship and delights in being petted and held.

While Little Rhett has been exposed to three different large dogs, he hasn't particularly warmed up to any of them. On the other hand, he gets along well with my four resident house cats, although he primarily plays with Miss Dolly. He hasn't had any exposure to children, but it's likely that he would thrive in the presence of older, gentle, and kind children.

Little Rhett is from a stray 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.
