Hi, I'm Sylvester!  I was born outside the first week of April 2024 to my mom, Sweetheart.  I have 2 brothers, Wiley and Cleo and a sister named Penni. I am a handsome black and brown tabby with a white belly and toes. When my siblings and I were 3 weeks old, our foster dad found us and trapped our mom to keep us all safe inside.

It has been a blast being inside!  We get to play with toys like balls and laser pointers. We have food to eat and fresh water to drink, and we never get cold or wet.   We have litter pans that I enjoy using right after our foster dad cleans them!

I love to play video games on my dad’s  phone or tablet. I also will curl up and sleep on my dad sometimes. I show him that I appreciate being fed by purring for him after I'm done eating.

I really love cuddling up to sleep with one or more of my siblings - it would be awesome if you were able to adopt one of them, too!

Sylvester is from a stray surrender with her mother and 3 siblings.. 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.

If you are unable to adopt but want to help this animal and others in our care, you can donate to support the medical and veterinary needs of all Ruff Start Rescue animals.  

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.
