Cicada was adopted Thursday, June 23, 2022!
Meet Cicada, the rough-and-tumble tomboy who just wants to have fun! We received an owner surrender request in March 2022 involving a momma kitty and her five newborn kittens. While the owner could not authenticate pedigree, each member of the adorable family – including the father, who the owner did not surrender to our rescue – was Birman. Birmans are a breed of kitties originating from Myanmar. They feature ear and facial color points, blue eyes, and silky coats. What distinguishes Birmans from Siamese are their white “gloves.” We were delighted to accept this beautiful family into our foster care program.
At 8-months-old when surrendered, the mother kitty, Junebug, radiated serenity and sweetness and was the perfect mommy to her five identical kittens – Mantis, Grasshopper, Katydid, Cicada, and Weevil. This daredevil girl is a delicious blend of sweetness and spice. Sweet, because she loves to cuddle with her favorite human, content to relax in your lap or on your chest, purring contentedly all the while. Gregarious Cicada plays hard, climbs high, and fearlessly leaps on humans from the apex of kitty trees – so watch out! When she’s not performing acrobatic feats of daring-do, she’s happy to be picked up and held. Cicada is not shy about speaking her mind and will throw her head back, emitting an insistent meow. As the most vocal of the litter, she’ll clarify that you best not be late with her dinner!
Cicada is available for adoption now as a solo kitty. However, we welcome adopters interested in adopting two siblings together. If you’d like to adopt this daredevil diva on her own or with one of her siblings, fill out our adoption application today!
