Dustin is a gorgeous, gray tabby Maine Coon mix. He has the thickest, softest fur you've ever felt in a kitten! He likes to play with his siblings, and doesn't mind being petted, but is still getting used to people. If he is laying down and you approach slowly, he is happy to let you pet him. He will even sit in your lap if you are gentle. He does purr and make muffins. He has not yet learned to approach people and is easily startled. Dustin will need a quiet home without kids or dogs, but he loves his siblings and will need to remain with one of them to help him continue to acclimate to life with people.
Dustin and his siblings, Elle, Lucas, and Mike, arrived in the Baltimore shelter when they were a little over three months old. Their mother, Molly, was comfortable with people, but it quickly became apparent that these kittens were born stray, and unsocialized. For some cats, this means they may become difficult to socialize and always fearful of people. Mama Molly had taken great care of her litter, and their weights were very healthy. The whole family was treated for fleas and given their shots, and then handed over to Fancy Cats for socialization.
Please note that it is Fancy Cats policy that kittens be adopted in pairs or have an age-appropriate playmate in the home already. We also do not adopt kittens to families with children under six years old without seeing appropriate history/experience with cats.
If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application and a representative will get back to you shortly to answer any questions you may have. The application can be found at this link (copy-paste into a new window): http://tinyurl.com/k5xd2vr.
