Hello, I’m Richard. Nice to meet you! I’m a spunky, playful little boy with a ton of personality. My foster home is filled with play mates for me but for the most part I just play by myself. There’s a dog here and she’s cool as long as she doesn’t want to play with me. Same goes for the other kittens sometimes. I prefer to initiate the play when I’m in the mood, otherwise Grumpy Richard comes out and you’ll hear me complaining from rooms away! I love to be wherever my people are close by and although I have yet to climb up and snuggle my humans, I don’t mind being carried around. I would make an excellent family member and you’ll be endlessly entertained with my goofy self. I have cerebellar Hypoplasia which is a condition that effects my balance. I have a very mild form, so there’s not too much that makes me different from other kittens, except I walk sideways on occasion. My litterbox habits are perfect as long as my litterbox has walls tall enough for me to lean against, otherwise I have stepped into my mess and needed a quick little bath (which I handle just fine). Stairs are a little more difficult for me, so as long as stairs can be blocked off and I can hitch a ride up or down, it won’t be a problem.

All Kalamazoo Animal Rescue cats & kittens are spayed or neutered and feline leukemia tested prior to adoption. They also are given medication to rid them of roundworms and checked and treated for fleas & ear mites, if needed. All are given distemper vaccinations and depending on how long the pet has been in foster care, a booster vaccine may be necessary after adoption which will be the responsibility of the adopter. Additional vet care may have been provided depending on the particular animal's needs. Most cats and kittens are microchipped when they are spayed or neutered.
