Hi, my name is Sprite!  I was picked up by my foster mom with only hours to live. She didn't know what she was getting into, but she did all of the right things so I could survive. I barely weighed 420 grams while my brother was almost 900 grams. She needed to come up with a name and although it wasn't looking so good for me, she saw a spark in my spirit. I was fed through syringe for 3 days, then I moved on to lapping up kitten milk on my own. It took another solid week to get comfortable with wet canned kitten food but now I'll devour it! 

I have come through with flying colors. I have a swagger like Mick Jagger! My back legs can hardly keep up with the attitude that swishes through my tail. 
Since I was so tiny, I might not get to be a very big grown up. It's OK though because I'm strong and can do what I want. I can make the big jump up on the bed and I tumble for hours with my big brother. Sometimes I'll even get cocky and scare the dog and try to tumble with my giant foster sister. 
Oh, and I have the strangest voice, I sometimes sound like a cicada in the woods. I do talk a bunch so if you want a good conversation, I'm your girl. 
Sprite is from a stray surrender with a sibling. 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.
