Hi, my name is Locket! My foster mom named me Locket because I am all shiny black except for a gathering of white hairs at my throat that look like a locket. And I am my foster mom's very favorite foster kitten! She is so taken with me because I am such an unusual kitten in that despite being VERY timid I also very much want to be loved. My foster mom thinks I may have had some bad experiences as a baby and just need patience and consistency to allow me to blossom into the very affectionate sweet girl that is coming out more and more. I am so timid that my foster mom considers me to be a "special needs" kitten as I really need that extra special someone who will understand and be patient with me. I was terrified when my foster mom first received me but not because I was "feral" or unsocialized but evidently due to something that happened in my past. I'm not hissy or in any other way aggressive or lashing out in my fear instead I was quick to scurry away to hide under the first piece of furniture I saw. But even so I'd poke my head out and quietly meow as if asking is it okay for me to come out? I am getting a bit more confident and love to be stroked. I'll bump my head against your hand hoping you'll pet me or scratch me under my chin. Then I'll plop down on the floor and roll around showing my pleasure that you're paying attention to me! And I'm quite talkative for such a timid girl!! I'll have an entire conversation with you! I'll start it and if you talk back to me I'll keep answering you! So lots of progress made and really hoping to be adopted by that special someone who will understand and be patient with me as I gain confidence with them. I will be so worth the extra time & attention!!
And I'm not shy at all with other kittens or cats! I especially like adult cats who I'll rub up against and I like kittens who I can play tag with! I'm litterbox trained and don't scratch furniture, instead I like to stretch my front paws on a sisal twine scratching post and on the Turbo scratcher. I'm an indoor kitten and prefer to remain so, protected from hazards of the outdoors. And I'm so ready to go home with my own very special someone! Could that be you? Please, please give me a chance!! My adoption fee is only $20.13 for the month of Jan. Please email for more information.
