Nona and her siblings have only been in their foster home for a short time and are still learning to trust humans. While they mostly prefer to hide when someone enters their room, they are slowly starting to come out of their shells. With patience and continued socialization, we believe they will become more comfortable and confident.

Nona has started to show her personality and is an independent and playful cat. She enjoys interactive playtime with her human, especially chasing after any kind of cat wand toys. While she's not fond of being petted quite yet, she will come when called and will gladly take treats out of your hand.

These kittens can be gently petted when approached slowly, and they've shown a particular fondness for Temptations puree treats! Their love for these tasty treats is helping them to start associating humans with positive experiences.

If you have the time, patience, and love to give, any one (or two!) of these kittens could be a wonderful addition to your home. They will need ongoing socialization and gentle encouragement to help them blossom into affectionate companions.

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.
