Katydid was adopted Wednesday, June 29, 2022!
Meet Katydid, a bold, brash, and buzzy little boss babe! 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. Vivacious Katydid rivaled her brother, Mantis, as one of the biggest kittens in the litter. Undeniably, she was the stoutest, sturdiest girl and has grown into an intelligent, independent, and irrepressible force of nature. While Katydid does enjoy playtime with her siblings, her curiosity compels her to venture into unexplored territories and sample everything life has to offer. She can be fearless and adventurous. Yet, conversely, like a little girl playing house, she takes great delight in hiding in boxes, romping within the contained space. We will warn that, with Katydid, you may want to watch your zippers and hoodie strings. She can’t resist them!
Katydid 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 bright and brazen girl on her own or with one of her siblings, fill out our adoption application today!
