Meet Francine

This is Francine an 8-month-old, playful, and affectionate kitten looking for her forever home!

Francine is a very loving petite kitten and will want non-stop pets and snuggles. She is still learning how to be a cat and doesn’t always understand how to communicate. She does play-bite sometimes or wants to grab your hand to play with her, but this has not been aggressive. She is doing well with learning the appropriate way to play and has come a long way. Francine is a very curious kitten that wants to see everything that is going on and explore what everything is.

She does get nervous with a lot of activity around her. She sometimes hisses or growls when she is talking due to not fully understanding how to communicate. She would do well with someone that understands cat body language. She has not been aggressive towards anyone or any pet in the foster home but may make someone nervous if they are new to having a cat as a pet. She loves to play with our resident cat and usually initiates play, but then hisses to communicate. If she is alone in her own space around the house, she is great and will let you know when she is ready for some extra snuggles.

Francine’s favorite toy is her crinkle balls and will do zoomies all around the house carrying her prized toy. She loves to be up on the back of the couch or on a high perch on a cat tree to see as much as possible.

Francine loves to lounge around during the day and is great at locating a hidden toy that rolls under furniture. She currently has her room and will let you know when she is ready to go to bed at night. She loves her own space that can just be hers.

Francine is currently living in a foster home with 2 young school-age kids, a cat, and an elderly dog. She has full access to the home and loves the space during the day, but prefers to go to bed in her room away from any distractions at night.

Francine would probably do best in a home where she is the only pet and has a quiet, calm atmosphere. She gets a little anxious around other pets and smaller children, and communication may come across more aggressively than she means it.

Francine has had a rough go. She has had diarrhea for most of her life. She was spayed in September and they found a large hernia that they repaired. She did well for a few weeks then she got an internal infection just below her incision site and diarrhea returned. She has been on prescription Biome dry cat food and has been doing well. The infection and her incision site are fully healed but will need continued monitoring for any complications from her hernia. She may also need to continue on her special food moving forward. Also, she is great at using her litter box without any issues of relieving herself in alternate locations. It would be recommended to have a covered box as she kicks a lot of litter out of the box. When her diarrhea is acting up (it can be explosive) and it may get outside of the box. She also occasionally doesn’t cover her bowel movements and this can be quite smelly.

There is no guarantee of age and breed as a rescue animal's history is unknown. All ages and breeds are the best estimates.

Adoption fees include a mandatory sales tax of 7.525%.
