Mike has been quite a story of inspiration! His first day in a home, he ran away in terror from people. When his foster mother showed him a ball toy, the noise sounded like a growl to him and he cowered in fear. He had never seen a cat toy before. Within a few days, though, he started to come out of his shell. By the end of a week, he had discovered the joy of play! Mike now likes to play with every toy all the time! He loves to chase, wrestle, hop, leap, and climb. He carries mouse toys in his mouth and kicks ball toys at the same time. Mike not only isn't afraid of people, he is the first to approach when people visit. He's happy to have a scratch or pet, and would like it even more if you'd throw a toy! Mike needs a home where he can be very playful and at least one very active, young cat or kitten he can play with. He would like to stay with one of his siblings if his adopters don't already have a young, playful cat at home. MIke also adores his mother, Molly, and would do well in a home with her.
Mike and his siblings, Elle, Lucas, and Dustin, 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.
