Larry, Harry, Perry, Jerry, Gary and Karrie arrived as sick kittens with giardia and respiratory infections.
Giardia was treated and they have all tested negative multiple times. The respiratory viruses, which most cats have been exposed to, continues to cause some of them to get sick from time to time, sometimes requiring eye medication. Our vet also mentioned cats in a shelter environment are constantly exposed and constantly stressed - that causes respiratory infection flare ups. Once these cats are adopted into homes usually the symptoms go away, although occasional flare-ups may still occur.
Jerry, an orange and white tabby, is friendly and very playful, Jerry craves human attention and interaction and has golden eyes and a pink button nose. Larry is the smallest of the group. He is almost entirely white with steel blue-gray eyes, with one exception: his light orange striped tail. Perry is all mackerel tabby. He has strong black and tan markings and a very discernable “M” on his forehead. Perry is sweet and likes attention but can be a bit shy at first. Harry is one cool black cat, complete with black button nose and green eyes. Harry can also be a little shy but warms up quickly and likes attention. Gary looks most like Larry – almost all white – but with orange around his nose and lighter blue eyes. Gary is the shyest one of the group.
As with most kittens, early human interaction is important to their social development. Play at this stage of a cat’s life is also vital because it increases their physical coordination, confidence and curiosity, and teaches limits while they explore leadership ranking (who’s in charge) and how to be a cat. These kittens will need some special attention and care to make sure they grow into a strong felines. Making sure they eat the right food formulated for kitten growth and receive the necessary vaccinations and spaying/neutering during their first year is also important. Because they are so small we are also recommending these kittens be adopted into families with children 12 years or older.
Please submit an application to adopt one of the kittens. Once your application is reviewed and approved we will contact you to make an appointment to visit us at AALOC to meet the selected cat (or cats!) and get to know him (or them!) a bit.
