Adoption Pending

Rutland, VT

Timid to trusting, this sweet boy is ready to love once you give him time to adjust.

Rooibos: April 1, 2020 – Male Kitten

Rooibos is a bit timid. He is a bit of a wallflower and needs a home that is comfortable giving him time to get used to his new surroundings and new people. He has been with me for several weeks and still has problems if I walk up to him too quickly. He is food motivated though, so he will “work” for treats and at mealtime by fighting his inclination to run. You can pull him out of his safe space with food which will help him expand his trust.

Rooibos: April 4, 2020 – “Well hello!”

Rooibos and his sister Hibiscus are two beautiful, fun-loving, playful kittens were once extremely hand shy but have come a long way. They have some residuals of that today but with the right home, they are very loving kitties.

Rooibos: March 27, 2020 – Lap nap.

Both Rooibos and Hibiscus LOVE to play and wrestle. I have a fishing pole-type toy that they both dive after with abandon. Rooibos goofy side comes out when he is playing, and I can see it when I scratch his back end just right, so I know whoever gives him the chance to blossom is going to end up with an extremely affection and goofy kitty.
