Reason for Surrender and Description:
Clove and Gorilla Badger are two kittens who are keeping each other company until they go to their new homes. Clove came in with four underage littermates who went into foster care until they were old enough and big enough to return to be spayed or neutered and go up for adoption. Clove's littermates are all a bit tinier than she is and still in foster.
Gorilla was very lonely and happy to keep Clove company. He is just ten weeks old. Gorilla loves when you pick him up. Purring is his specialty.
June is Adopt-a-Cat month! Dakin adoption centers in Leverett and Springfield have lots of kittens in need of new homes. Not in the market for a kitten? Come meet our wonderful adult cats. Want to help but can't adopt? Consider being a foster caregiver. Our foster families save lives… hundreds of them every year! From kittens who need time to grow up to dogs who need time out of the bustling kennel environment, we have animals that need your help on a temporary basis (generally a couple of weeks to a couple of months).
