Meet Spittoonia, a spirited kitten whose name reflects her initial spunky nature. When she first arrived, she was wary of human contact and would spit as a defense mechanism. However, with a little patience and some tasty treats, Spittoonia quickly warmed up. Within a day, she transformed into a loving, purring companion who enjoys being held and cuddled.
Spittoonia is now an independent kitten who adores playing with toys, especially stuffed mice. She also has a playful side and enjoys interacting with other pets. While she quickly befriended a large dog, she needed more time to adjust to other cats in the household. She has a curious nature and enjoys playing with her dog companion's paws.
While Spittoonia isn't a fan of being picked up or held for long periods, she does like to be near her human and animal companions. She enjoys receiving pets and doesn't seem to have any particular spots she dislikes being touched. If you're looking for a playful and independent feline friend who will keep you company while respecting your space, Spittoonia could be the perfect match for you.
Spittoonia 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.
