This little girl and her siblings were born to a feral momcat, so volunteers have worked hard to socialize them.
The momcat was caught, spayed & tested neg for felv/fiv...yayyy
Here are some notes from the foster mom who has socialized Pepper. Yes we know this is a long write-up - we just want to ensure these kittens make a great match with their new families.
"Pepper is perfect! She is just a tiny fluff ball of spunk and love. She freely gives love, licks and cuddles, doesn't hiss anymore and runs around comfortable and confident.
She's very good with my cats, although they may not be so great with her, lol. My 2 year old is massive in size and pretty much pummels her when playing. Makes me come running to rescue her, but she just bounces right up and charges back at him. Even gives him rubs and kisses. My old lady cat just isnt a fan of any other animal, but Pepper still tries to interact every time she's near.
We have found her favorite toys to be balls of any kind (as long as they are appropriately sized for her tinyness) and wand toys with the long string (only for supervised playing of course-she tends to wrap herself up in it with her rolling around). Cutest of all, she has found her dream bed. One of those snuggly cave type beds that she tucks herself into to sleep.
Even when she cuddles with me when I lay down to sleep, she will always move to her own bed for her shut eye. Honestly not even sure how I'm going to let her go when the time comes, but she will be an awesome little pet for her new guardians!"
We are certain the perfect family is out there! Pepper will need an outgoing, young kitty "buddy" who is fearless, which would be a continuous role model for her.
PAWS adopts out kittens in pairs, or adopts to a home with another young kitty (3 years old, or so).
