    Meet Rita!

    Rita came into care with her 2 brothers when she was around 2 weeks old as an orphan. Don’t let her size fool you! She’s the smallest of the 3 by quite a bit but definitely the most mighty! She was always sassy, even as a 2 week old kitten. She could fit through the bars of a wire crate so she was always the first to be fed because her poor brothers were too large. She’s the reason they had to be kept in a hollow shell crate when they were itty bitty, haha. Even today, at over 3 months old, she is tiny.

    She is almost all white with the coolest calico tail! She loves to play with anything and everything and likes to give ‘love nibbles’, as we call it. Lets talk a bit about her ‘love nibbles’… Well, she likes to bite, haha. She didn’t have a momma to show her not to do this so we are doing our best but needs a home that will continue to work with her on this. She’s very independent and would do fine in any home but if you have a dog, it MUST be a kitty friendly dog because this little one has absolutely NO fear when it comes to dogs and likes to give them some ‘love nibbles’ when playing with their tails.

    Rita and her brothers also suffered from something called upper respiratory virus. This is a kitty cold that is similar to a human cold. They were on antibiotics and eye drops but this is now cleared up. With that said, this is a virus that can represent itself during stressful situations such as moving to a new home. This should be considered when applying to adopt Rita or her brothers. Rita’s foster family resides east of Didsbury so although you’ll have a bit of a drive, I promise, she is worth it!
