“It is impossible to keep a straight face in the presence of one or more kittens.”

What is it about a kitten that tugs at your heartstrings and makes most people with a pulse go “Awww,” followed by a lot of cooing and high-pitched baby talk?
Could it be the pink nose or the little furry kitten face looking up at you with those big innocent goldish eyes? Whatever the reason, Lavender, KCAC’s 3-month-old female black and white domestic shorthair, definitely fits the bill as one of the most adorable baby kittens on record. The minute you see her, an automatic “Awww!” can’t help but escape your lips.
Along with her sister, Lily, Lavender came to KCAC as a stray. A little bit shy around new people at first, she warms up fairly quickly, ready to melt your heart on a regular basis by playing kitten games with her sister. She’s good around other cats, too, and doesn’t mind a cuddle or two in between her playtime and her nap time.
Keeping in mind that Lavender has more than likely never lived in a real home before, her new family will need to show her the ropes in order to make sure her curiosity doesn’t get her into trouble.
Are you ready to spend your days saying “Awww” in order to give Lavender the home she so richly deserves?
