*Bonded with Emmie*

Hi, my name is Elenor. I’m gorgeous and I know it!  I’m a beautiful Tortie with a patch of white making me a calico.  I’m shyer than my sister. I tend to lurk on the side and take everything in.  I tend to hide when new people visit. Don’t worry though I’m watching your every move. I’m much more confident with my sister, Emmie.  It’s taken time but I now look forward to cuddles from my foster mom and even seek her out for attention. So I’m looking for a human who will be patient with me while I adjust to the newness. I promise once I settle in we’ll become Best Buddies.  Emmie and Elenor are bonded and need to be adopted together.

Elenor is from a stray momma who was TNR’d.

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.
