Important Note

Paddington is best friends with Mouse. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Paddington was given to me at just one week old. All 4 were sturdy and healthy, but just didn’t have a mom. I bottle fed them, and then introduced them to a lactating female named Sunny. Sunny immediately accepted them as her own, even though she had 4 biological babies the same age already. I rotated them so everyone could get their share of the groceries and loving comfort from mom. Sunny had 8 babies!
Well, fast forward to December 2014….
Paddington is the ultimate sweet little girl. Around 6 pounds, she will always be quite small. But don’t let that fool you! She is filled with energy and yet very calm and cuddly. It is so funny to watch all of them tear through the house with wild abandon and collapse with exhaustion for a nice long nap. Expect to be entertained for hours.
She will need low maintenance, having long silky very soft hair, she will need her brushing once a week. (I don’t brush her once a week, and she has no mats)
She gets along great with other cats and kittens but we don’t know about dogs.
Her needs are simple…..she would love a quiet home with gentle children over 4, possibly a mellow cat or two, (or his mom or sister) a sunny window, and she is in heaven.
Any of the kittens would do best in a home with older children who would be gentle and kind and not chase them.
If you have it in your heart to adopt sweet Paddington, and have a family that can give her time and attention she deserves, please fill out the adoption application and contact us for information on how to meet Paddington. Your whole family needs to meet her.
