This month’s adoptable pet from Second Chance Animal Aid
Evan the Motor-Powered Kitten
Who Am I?
I’m one of the sweetest 3-month old kittens you’ll ever meet. I was rescued after leaping out of the bamboo at my rescuer, following my hunch she was a cat lover who couldn’t pass by a cute kitten like me. I was obviously right.
My name was inspired by Evinrude and fishing and boating enthusiasts will surely guess why. Evinrude makes boat motors. I purr easily, often and loudly! I even purr on eye contact.
Why I Make a Great Pet!
My Instant Affection for People & Craving for Cat Companionship: I’m not just a lap kitten – I’m a shoulder, chest and stick-my-nose-up-your-nose kitten. I love to snuggle up with people and give kisses – these sometimes progress to washing your face if you let me. I’m definitely not a kitten for someone who wants lots of personal space.
Although I’m active and playful like any kitten, amusing myself running from toy to toy around the house in an occasional whirlwind of (hyper)activity, I’m a gentle and easily trained kitten too. I can get excited when playful and my tiny claws and baby teeth may scratch your hand, but I’d still be a good kitten for older kids as I’m easily corrected.
I’m a perfect kitten companion for a friendly cat. I haven’t met a cat I didn’t like, although I’ve certainly met a couple cats at my rescuer’s house who don’t seem to like me. Hard to believe, I know. Some cats can be put out by my confident takeover of their cat beds, scratching posts, toys and people.
My foster dad best sums me up as “a very loving cat” and there’s lots of love to go around.
My Excellent Health: Like all SCAA foster animals, I’ve received the best medical care possible from SCAA’s vet partner, PAW. I had a great, and unusual, start as a foster kitten – being a relatively clean rescue in good condition. I’ve been treated for fleas and mites (Revolution) and worms (Milbemax) and started my vaccinations (Tri-Cat). My final vaccinations (second Tri-Cat and rabies vax) are due late June.
If I’m adopted soon, SCAA will subsidize half the cost of my neutering at PAW when I’m old enough (approximately 6 months old).
My Ideal Home
I’m a great kitten for cat lovers with enough time to socialize me (I’m young and still developing my bond with people) and indulge my need for attention. I would do well in a family home with older kids and would make a great companion for a friendly cat.
