Hey there, I'm Serrano! I'm a timid little guy who's actively working on building trust. I'm not quite ready to fully relax around people, so I'm not a fan of being touched much. Sometimes I get frightened and hiss, but on occasion, I'll cautiously accept treats from your hand, though there are moments when I'm still too scared. I have a special fondness for paté, so you might catch me sneaking behind my brothers to snag a nibble.

I came into rescue with two brothers; one shares my apprehension, while the other is teaching me that people aren't all that bad. If you'd like to assist me in discovering that people are kind, my foster mom can provide you with some insights into my dos and don'ts.

Serrano is from a local shelter. 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.
