My story

This is Osi (Oh-see) and Kira (Kee-rah), they are 9 month-old brother and sister feral kittens. We’ve been working to socialize them for about 2 months and they’ve made tons of progress.

When we first met them they were quite skittish and fearful and mostly stayed at the back corner of their crate.
But they are now roaming around our apartment, sleeping on their backs in the sun, wrestling with each other and playing with all their toys. They love anything with a feather, tunnels to pounce through, and any small rolling object. We’ve been using Churu snacks to get them used to us and they work awesome to keep them engaged. They’ll even sit on our laps and chest to eat them off our fingers and let us pet their cheeks while they are eating.

Kira is the most outgoing one and will usually come sit next to us on the floor even without snacks. Osi is more observant, but is getting much more comfortable with us walking around the house, and generally loves his little hammock and resting in high places.

They don’t seem too sensitive to regular house noises (ice dispenser, vacuum, roomba, etc) but sudden movements from us tend to spook them, so it’s always best to move towards them very slowly, calmly, with eyes averted and from their level or below, instead of leaning over them from above. Osi in particular seems more sensitive to sudden movements and hands.

Since they’re feral they don’t meow at all but they do a really cute squeaks and chirping noises to communicate with each other and when they get really excited.They’re completely bonded and always have really cute squeaky reunions whenever they’ve been separated. It’s been so awesome observing their supportive dynamic, and the process of them learning from each other. Overall, with patience, lots of love and dedication to meet them at their comfort zone, these two will make incredible, loving pets that will continue to surprise you with their insane cuteness.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

All cats and kittens are vaccinated and tested for FELV (feline leukemia) and FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus), and if old enough, are neutered or spayed.
We will ask you some questions about your home and we will be glad to answer any questions you may have. Adopting a pet is a long-term commitment. We ask you to sign the KittyKind Adoption Agreement.
We will always take a cat back FOR ANY REASON. We will also work with you to place her in another good home if (after a period of adjustment) the adoption doesn't work out.
We do ask for a $125 adoption fee to help cover some of our food and veterinary expenses. For certain purebred cats (Siamese, Persian, Maine Coon, etc.), we request a $150 - $300 adoption fee.

More about this rescue

KittyKind is a New York City not-for-profit, no-kill, all-volunteer cat rescue and adoption group. All of us at KittyKind have opened our hearts and homes — and emptied our pockets — to save thousands of cats from neglect or abuse. Every cat we rescue is given food, shelter, medical care, a safe place to lay his or her head and most importantly of all, a reason to purr. We do not believe in rescuing a cat or kitten only to euthanize it if it has a broken leg or needs extended nursing care. We never give up if there is a chance of saving them. We take responsibility for each and every life we save and if a cat or kitten is unadoptable, they have a home with us for life.
We believe that animals are not property to be discarded, disposed of, or killed just for the crime of being homeless or unwanted. We believe that people should be friends, caretakers and protectors of animals. We believe that we must take responsibility for the life of every animal we rescue who through no fault of their own, is abandoned, sick, disabled, old or unable to care for themselves. We are dedicated to relieving their suffering, providing food, shelter, medical care and comfort until we can place them in a safe and loving home.
