Smol bear cat. Big bear cat. 🐻🐱
Koda is my only foster fail. He was my second foster ever. I didn’t adopt him so much as he adopted me.
He wouldn’t leave! He just refused!
Koda came to me as a bottle baby. Contrary to popular belief, just because you adopt a kitten, doesn’t mean they’re going to be a super cuddly lap cat.
Every baby has a unique personality and I see tremendous personality development throughout the entire first year. Translation: adopting a young kitten doesn’t guarantee the relationship you want.
Koda doesn’t like to be held and almost never seeks out attention from me. He’s TERRIFIED of new people and places. #mylittleferalbottlebaby
Saskia, by contrast, came to me as an adult and she LOVES cuddle time and begs for love from all people (she loves new people... just like a puppy)! Even Cedar was constantly begging for love and she was an older, harder to socialize feral kitten who I trapped.
Moral of the story: don’t overlook the older kittens and adults! If you’re looking for a particular personality, talk to foster parents (especially those with freeloaders who have been there awhile)! You can also foster yourself so you can take each nugget for a test drive before committing! Fostering is a great way to find the best match for your family, especially if you have pets at home. You can always get your kitten fix by fostering because there will always be babies in need! 🐻💙 #kodabearkitten #adoptdontshop
