Dior and Gucci
The Designer Kittens
DOB: August 2016
Meet Dior and Gucci, our Designer Kittens. They showed up with their mom at a small colony feeding station in the yard of one of our volunteers in October 2016.
Now in foster care with us, Dior and Gucci are flourishing. Their mother obviously was previously someone’s pet as she is sweet and very friendly. However, it was very obvious that Dior and Gucci had never had exposure to people at all. They were frightened and would run and hide when their foster mother approached. They are now making great strides, but still have a distance to go. Presently, they are comfortable with their foster family. They start to purr when you enter their room, and love being petted. They arch their backs when they get the full-body rub. They like to play with their toys and enjoy play sessions with their foster family. If you set them on your lap they will stay for a short while and enjoy being petted. They are still uncomfortable being picked up, and are easily startled by quick movements and noises.
“Hi. My name is Dior. I am a tuxedo girl and very pretty. My fur is very shiny and soft. I have big, round, yellow eyes and a charming beauty mark on the right side of my nose. Some people might want to call it a black spot or freckle, but designer kittens only have beauty marks. I like playing. My favourite wand is Da Bird. That bird is very smart, but I have caught it a few times. Ha ha. I’m smart AND pretty. I like the feeling when my foster mom pets me. It feels so good, but still sometimes I’m scared when she moves too quickly towards me. Sometimes people I’ve never met before come to visit me and that scares me too. After a while, if they try to play with me, especially with Da Bird, I can’t help myself and I start to chase the bird and am less scared.”
Dior and Gucci will be a fine addition to a family who is willing to take the time to allow them to get comfortable in the new home on their own terms. Once the girls get used to the people in their new family, their sociability will continue to grow as they gain confidence..
