*Bonded with Hattie*

If you were looking for a super cuddly and super fun kittens, look no further!!! 

Spookie is a long haired tuxedo who desperately wants to trust and love but did not have much experience with people when he was very young.  He is easily spooked by new things (and people) and will find a safe hiding place. But each day, he is getting more comfortable and he really does love people.  Once relaxed, he will purr and snooze on a lap and play with toys.  Spookie is learning from his litter mates how to trust people and will need a home dedicated to spending time as he adjusts.  He loves to romp and play and snuggle with his siblings and Hattie is often his BFF.  

Hattie and Spookie  are a bonded pair and came to Ruff Start via a rescue in rural Minnesota. They were found living among dozens of other animals and left to fend for themselves.  But those days are far behind them.  During the last few months with a foster family, these kitties have completely adapted to and fallen in love with indoor life alongside human (and cat) best friends. 

All 7 kittens* in this crew are PURRFECT!  They are some of the most snuggly and easy-going cats this foster has ever seen. They have been around lots of children (including toddlers) and adults and are very accustomed to being held and pet and snuggled and hugged. They LOVE LOVE LOVE to be near or on people.  They instantly trust and love humans and they assume all other cats want to be instant friends. They have not met dogs but with slow introductions, it is suspected they would be good friends. 

Like all kittens, this crew does 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 a nap; if there is not an available human lap, they will curl up with a sibling.  They have been found in boxes, on iPads and in the dirty laundry basket.  

All of these kitties have a perfect litter box record, use scratching posts, and are good eaters (and will do most anything for a treat). 

If you are looking to add maximum cuteness, tons of fun and many snuggles to your home, then these kitties might be for you! The kitties are with a foster in Minneapolis; after applying, you are welcome to visit/meet them.  

* Litter consists of Bessie, Lily Noelle, Hattie, Spookie, French Fry, Lucky 13, and Duchess

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.
