What a difference love makes!

Peanut was brought to ACCT because she was a stray living outside and her kitten siblings were beating her up (probably playing rough) and she had a severe kitty cold.  Peanut was in really rough shape when she was brought in, but a concerned staff member at ACCT fell in love with Peanut and contacted City Kitties to see if they could get her the medical treatment she needed.  She thought Peanut was so special, she even offered to foster her.  Peanut is doing much better now, but she still has some medical issues we're working hard to get sorted out.  We'll update as we know more.

Peanut is great with cats and her foster mom thinks she would be ok with well behaved kids who understand that she is as kitten and sometimes kittens can play a little rough (light play biting and gripping with her paws.) She does allow being picked up and held. Her foster mom thinks she would adjust to dogs with proper introductions. She's pretty easy going and friendly.

Peanut is very sweet and playful. She has the most wonderful purr which is loud and long! She will purr even if you just look at her!

She can happily keep herself occupied with an array of toys including things to bat at, scratch posts and little stuffed toys. She also plays with her foster siblings who are all very tolerant of her cute kitten play and bathes.

She has an adorable little chirp, enjoys belly rubs and loves to curl up in the sun for a warm nap! She will also curl up on your lap and with other cats. She prefers to sleep at your feet at night, typically sleeping the whole night through and greeting you happily in the morning.

She has a soft and fluffy white and tabby coat. She has a unique look and resembles a wild cat with her tall pointed ears with cute white tufts and she bounces around like a little bunny!

Peanut gives the best little kisses with her adorable pink nose. This sweet girl brings so much joy wherever she goes, even when she's napping! She is looking for a forever home where she can snuggle, play and make her family very happy!

We included one picture of when Peanut was first brought in to show what an amazing transformation she has made.

Peanut is 4-5 months old, spayed/neutered, FIV/FeLV negative, FVRCP and rabies vaccinated, received a fecal exam to test for parasites, uses the litterbox, and was treated for fleas and parasites as needed.



About City Kitties' Veterinary Care: We provide high quality veterinary care for our foster cats and kittens. Each animal is spayed/neutered, tested for FIV and feline leukemia, and receives age-appropriate vaccinations (FVRCP and rabies), and flea/parasite treatment as needed. Since they live in foster homes, you can see our adoptable animals in a familiar, stress-free environment, and their foster parents can tell you all about their personalities. If you have questions a week, a month, or even a year after adoption, we're available for guidance and support.

How to Adopt from City Kitties: Our adoptable animals are housed in private foster homes. The first step in meeting an adoptable animal is to fill out an adoption application. To ensure a lifelong match between you and your new pet, our adoption process involves an application, reference check, and a visit to your home at the time of adoption. Our adoption fee is $85 to help subsidize the cost of veterinary care. You can read more about the adoption process and fill out an application on our website, www.citykitties.org.
