*Bonded to Nola*

Hi, I'm Windy! My foster mom would describe me as a perfect balance. I’m cuddly and also love to play. I like to be near you but also get along just fine entertaining myself. My favorite moments are when I can be by my person and soak in the love. I even will bear hug you with my arms around your hand to show you how much I love a good head scratch. I will also roll over for a nice tummy pet as well! When I’ve gotten my fill of pets, I love a good playtime session. I will play with nearly any toy, as long as I can bat it around and have something to chase, I’m a happy boy.

I have an affectionate, inquisitive, and personable personality. When it comes to grooming, I'm fantastic—I enjoy brushing sessions and don't mind having my feet touched. I'm fully litterbox trained. My loves include petting, cuddles, all types of toys (especially rolly ones or wands), cat scratching posts, and wet food. However, I can become nervous around loud noises and am currently hesitant around new people, though this nervousness tends to dissipate once I'm settled. In terms of talkativeness, I'm generally a quiet boy.

One thing helpful to know is I had a hard start to life. I have a scar on my neck where hair doesn’t grow well, and can be very hesitant to new things and people. Having my bonded kitty Nola helps me feel more confident and safe. Nola and I will need to be adopted together.  I just need a home and love from my person to show me the world can be full love and head scritches. If you can be that person, it won’t be long before I give you all the love I have and shower you in affection. With a little time and patience, I will be the best darned kitty companion around!

Windy is from a reservation.

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.
