Hi there, I'd like you to meet Express. She's quite shy and has only recently begun to venture out into the room when people are present. Express has been part of our household for several weeks, and just recently, she's stayed in the same space with an adult without retreating behind something. It's been a slow journey, but I believe she's getting more comfortable with the dogs and other cats. It might take some time, but I'm optimistic she'll continue to come out of her shell.

She seems to find comfort in the presence of her brother, and even though she's a bit reserved, we've observed her enjoying meals and playing with her brother from a distance.

Express 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.

If you'd like to donate towards this pet's care, you can donate to our Animal Care Fund.   Our Animal Care Fund supports the medical and veterinary needs for all Ruff Start Rescue animals. You'll be able to enter this pet's name on the second page of the donation form.

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.
