Adoption Pending

Rutland, VT

Talkative house panther with lots of purrsonality

Mercury– Male Kitten: November 29, 2020

Mercury is a character who likes to admire himself in the mirror, but who can blame him – he is certainly one charismatic and handsome boy! He is known for his trademark one white whisker.

Mercury boldly comes out to greet me. He likes to rub up against my legs and likes to have his back scratched.

-Foster Family

Mercury enjoys being the center of attention and if he sees his sister Europa getting too much attention, he will push her out of the way so he can get all the pets. He loves to play with his sister in the morning and late afternoon. The two of them enjoy a good long nap cuddled up together in between their marathon play sessions.

Mercury particularly loves his bungee toy and will drag it into the kitty tunnel or onto the couch. He is a big talker and very playful and curious, climbing onto shelves to see what’s there.
