Weevil was adopted Saturday, June 18, 2022!
Meet Weevil, proof that one does not need to be massive to be mighty! 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. Weevil was the tiniest kitten of the litter and, early on, needed extra care from her foster mom to ensure her survival. Weevil’s fighting spirit and will to live were strong, and she not only survived but thrived. Her diminutive size has never stopped her. She may be the smallest of her siblings, but she’s also the bravest. She’s the first to explore new areas, test boundaries, and sample new tastes and experiences. Weevil was the first among her siblings to wean and sample kitten food. Because she received extra care and attention when she was a baby, she’s accustomed to and loves to be held and cuddled. She’ll purr peacefully and make little mini biscuits in return. If you allow it, she also enjoys perching on your shoulder!
Weevil 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 mighty mite on her own or with one of her siblings, fill out our adoption application today!
