Important Note

Pickle (foster care) is best friends with Chips (foster care). Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Pickle and her brother Chips were found outdoors on Memorial Day Weekend. They are 5 month old kittens who want to find a loving home where they can be adored by their humans! Both are spayed/neutered, up to date on shots, FIV/FeLV negative, microchipped, littertrained, and total lovebugs! They would like to be adopted together and could live with other cats and well-mannered dogs.
Chips is completely blind and had both of his eyes removed surgically following an infection. He requires no ongoing medical care and his blindness doesn't stop him from doing fun things like chasing his sister and his other kitten friends, climbing to the very top of the cat tree, begging for people food, or bringing you his favorite ribbon toy to play with! Once you see him in action, you won't believe he's really blind!
Pickle has one eye, which has limited vision due to scarring. Despite that, she's very confident and outgoing! She loves attention from people and will let you carry her around. She loves her toys and is playful, but is also enjoys just napping in your lap while you work. Her remaining eye will require some monitoring to ensure it is still healing, but she has had no problems with it since the initial infection was cleared.
Both of these kittens would love to show you how amazing they are! Come meet them and you won't be able to help falling in love!
