***Please read bio*** Hi! My name is Naya and I'm currently living in Kuwait. I am about 8 Months Old. I am hoping to make the next trip to Los Angeles on August 20th. Unfortunately, I cant come until I have a secured foster or foster to adopt home. I am sweet, affectionate, playful and I get along with other kitties. I havent been tested around dogs but I do get along with gentle kids. Important Info: Fosters will be required to isolate me from other household pets for the first 2 weeks minimum. Fosters must be within 40 minutes of Studio City as thats where our vet is. Cats from kuwait are at risk of exposure to ringworm or upper respiratory infections. This is why we quarantine and ask that fosters be comfortable treating these if they pop up upon arrival. The rescue will advise and cover all medical expenses. You can apply to foster at ( Please include the -la in the link or an error will pop up. Thank you!

Caramel has born in March and I raised her and her sister. Both her mother and father were pure breed. I got both of them from Ukraine and Russia and they got adopted a month ago. They had both passport and birth certificates. I got new job and I have to relocate. They don't accept pet in my new place and unfortunately I have to have someone to take care of that. There is an adoption fee. Her sister is 2 months and I prefer both of them be together. In that case, I will give you all of their stuff. Like litter box, fake grass, food, playing stuff, etc Please let me known if you need more pic or info.
