Feline by species, Irish by foster mom, McKinney lives-up to his moniker heritage by being a happy boy that loves life. He's just a joy to be around. A typical kitten, he's playful, fun-loving, and a hoot to watch. Put them all together and you have McKinney, a sweet kitty just waiting to take over your life and heart with his charm. He gets along well with his siblings and other fostermates, so should easily adapt to a new family. Thankfully someone was lookin' for McKinney and his siblings, too. Or should we say, lookin'-out for. McKinney and 8 other prewean kittens were found in a box in a handicapped parking space in Hellyer Park when they were just 2 weeks old. Their eyes barely opened, their first look at the world was in a box, but with loving care in their foster home and being spoiled by their human mom, this litter of kittens blossomed into loving little purrboxes. Adopting a kitten is a 10-20 year commitment, is beneficial because they readily adapt to their new home, and will provide many years of love, devotion, entertainment, and companionship. McKinney's ideal humans are those who crave the fun, energy, joy, and inquisitiveness of a kitten, and will happily include him in their daily activities. He'll do best in an active home with another pet (hopefully one of his sisters Gracie or Purrla; brothers Oakley, Rooney, or Willoughby; or a fostermate) and older children to keep him company. With a loving family, he'll be a wonderful and constant companion for many years. Born in March 2014, McKinney is a white with orange spots DMH male, is neutered, has age-appropriate vaccinations (FVRCP), tested negative for FIV/FeLV, dewormed, deflead, and microchipped for identification. He uses the litterbox and scratching post, and must be indoors-only.
