Hello! Meet Katelyn (Kate for short). She was rescued from an outdoor barn life with her mom. Now they’re besties. Kate loves her mommy and follows her everywhere!
Kate is very shy of humans. She hisses when her foster approaches her, but this is just a scare tactic! She is very sweet and gentle when getting pets. Her foster has been trying to build her trust by giving her tuna paste treats which Kate finds irresistible. Once Kate is in her cat cave with her mommy she is easier to pet because she can’t run away. Kate’s foster is learning that the way to her heart is through playing. If you have a little bit of patience and like playing with cats then you might just be on team Kate. In fact, here’s a sweet video of Kate playing.
She is looking for a forever human who can be very patient with her and help show her that people are not as scary as she thinks. Kate’s rescuer had a cat friendly dog that Kate was starting to warm up to. She and her mom Goldie are part of a bonded pair and need to be adopted together . Click here to learn more about Goldie!!
Katelyn (Kate for short!) was found as a stray. 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.
