Nanuk, her momma, Sakari, and her siblings, Kavik and Miska, were rescued from Devore shelter in early June when she was just two weeks old. They were all very sick with a nasty cold, but with the help of KD’s great vets and fosters, they’re now all thriving in foster care!
Nanuk is the Inuit word for “polar bear”, which is exactly what this gorgeous, lilac-point, snow-shoed beauty looked like when she was a tiny ball of white fuzz. She has grown into a stunning little lady who, having two brothers and several foster brothers, can hold her own in a kitten wrestling match! Her tail seems to get fluffier by the week, and she holds it high when she struts her stuff on the cat-walk (coffee table). Like her momma, she has a sleek, but medium-haired coat of fur. Her foster mom’s favorite thing about her though is her little smudge of a white mustache! Nanuk oscillates between being very playful with her siblings- wrestling and chasing after toys, snuggling and purring with her foster mom, and needing a few moments of quiet time to herself…your typical girl! She will be happiest being adopted with a sibling (may we suggest Miska?!) or into a home with a young/playful kitty that can be her buddy. She gets along with everyone, even the dog when she’s not being rambunctious.
Nanuk was adopted October 5, 2018!

** Please be aware: Nanuk is a highly socialized kitty who has grown up in a foster home with playmates. She is best suited for a home that has other kitties close in age and energy levels or be adopted with another kitten from our rescue. We will not consider applicants who have no other cats and only plan on adopting one kitty.
