Sykes came to us with his siblings on October 3rd when he was only a week old. His eyes weren't even open yet and he was living in someone's garage where his mom had gone to give birth.
Sykes was the runt of the litter and is still extremely small for his age. He looks more like six weeks than fourteen. He has a funny little face, too. We can't quite figure out his parentage, but he certainly is a quirky looking little guy.
Looks aside (and to be honest, some people find him truly adorable), he is a very sweet and playful kitten. He has the run of his foster home with five kids, a couple of dogs, and some other cats. Nothing fazes him. Sykes will run around playing with other kitties or, if no one else is in the mood, he's perfectly happy playing on his own. He can always find something fascinating to explore.
He's also a big bed kitty, sleeping in his foster parents' bed every night (along with the afore-mentioned dogs, cats, and sometimes kids).
Because of his small size and his unknown heritage, we have had Sykes fully vet checked and tested. One of his eyes sometimes gets a little watery, but he got a clean bill of health and is ready to start looking for his forever home.
Sykes has had some of his shots, but it will be some time before he's big enough to be neutered and get his first rabies shot. If he is adopted before then, his new family can simply bring him back for a day when he's big enough and we'll take care of getting the rest done.
The adoption donation for Sykes is $100 and includes all his shots (including his future first-time rabies), FeLV and FIV testing (which was negative), and neutering (when he's older and bigger).
Note: You may elect to have the procedures done at a vet of your choice and provide proof and The Animal House will refund a portion of the original adoption fee. Please note that the cost of having the work done at your vet will far exceed the amount of the refund, since we can only refund an amount equal to our greatly discounted veterinary prices.
The adoption donation for all our cats and kittens includes spay/neuter, 4-way vaccination (FVRCP), rabies, testing for Feline Leukemia (FeLV) and Feline Aids (FIV) and, in some cases, a microchip.
Small animals are free of any visible signs of illness and, to the best of our knowledge, in good health at the time of adoption unless otherwise specified. Ages are often approximations.
