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!

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.
