About Lil Orphan Andy
This little boy, weighing less than a pound, was left at a small rural shelter way far away (down near Bakersfield). He was a “singleton” which is what a shelter calls kitten who is all alone. Where were his siblings and mom? I have no idea. Shelters do not keep tiny young kittens, and especially if they are all alone.
I heard about his urgent need for rescue. I am not one to ever resist red-or as some call them, orange-kitties of any size. So I said, “Absolutely I would take him!” Several wonderful transporters coordinated and brought him up to me in relays. Of course we found he was perfect and super adorable when he arrived.
So Andy is everything kitten. He is full of confidence, curiosity and fun. He loves humans. He loves to explore everything. The world is his toy. He is a “white mitted” kitten. This means he has four snowy white feet. He also has a white bib and tummy to set off his very saturated red, soft, soft fur. His ears are already growing the tufts that Maine Coon’s have. Andy is too young to show whether he will have a ruff or not or to show the ultimate length of his fluffy fur. He has a wonderful, super soft, cuddly tummy. The photos below show him in ages from 4 weeks to 8 weeks.
Andy also has his own girlfriend. Her name is Seven (or more accurately “Seven Eighths” aka 7/8ths ). Seven came to us from a very different Northern California source though she was also a singleton. She is a very Maine Coony brown tabby girl. She has a 7/8th tail since the hurt tip was removed, hence her name. These two lonely kittens were so happy to be together from the first moment they met. We are not going to separate them, ever, companions for life, they must be adopted together.
Andy eats wet and dry food and is litter box perfect.
His foster mom is Harriet in Santa Cruz.
Contact Harriet at (831) 336-2983 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions, or send an Adoption Application. If you are unable to reach Harriet by phone or email, email us at Info@purebredsplus.org.
NOTE: We prefer families with children bring them to the adoption appointment. Why? This allows interaction between the children and the cat. This helps ensure they will be a good fit for each other. A mismatch between a child and a cat is not in anyone’s best interest!
