Meet Hickory! Found with his littermates in a woodpile in Loudoun Co., Hickory is now looking for his forever home. Hickory is outgoing and friendly with his fosters. He likes to sit in your lap and be petted. He may seem shy at first, but warms up with a little attention and then likes nothing better than to sit in your lap while you stroke his fur. He loves to romp with his siblings and play with his feather toy. Hickory would do best being adopted with a littermate or with another young kitten.
He is up to date on age appropriate vetting and has good litterbox manners.
Please note that cats adopted through PetConnect Rescue must be indoor only, and may not be declawed (unless already declawed at the time of rescue).
The adoption fee for this kitten is $135, which helps with the cost of routine vet care. This fee DOES NOT INCLUDE spay/neuter if the kitten is not already spayed/neutered. If the animal you are adopting is not already spayed/neutered, you will be required to sign a contract legally obligating you to have the animal altered. We also collect a $100 spay/neuter deposit to help ensure that the procedure gets done in a timely manner.
***Please note that our first step in approving adoption applicants is to complete a vet check. Vetting of current and past pets is very important to us, thus we will be speaking with the vet(s) listed on your application to ensure that your current and previous pet(s) are kept up to date on vaccines (including rabies), spayed or neutered and examined annually by your vet.***
