Hi there … I’m Chicklet!
Yup, I’m named after a baby chicken … how weird! Truth be told, I was a bit of a chicken to start with and I’m a baby, so maybe it suits me.
The world can be a really big scary place for a little foster kitten, so I used to hide from the world … under tables, beneath chairs or squished into any nook and cranny I could find. One time I even managed to roll myself up in a yoga mat.
Then my human foster mom introduced me to another kitten. His name is Habanero and he is a foster kitten, too! I hadn’t been around other kittens much and oh boy was I socially awkward … yikes! His sister, Jalapeno, thought I was a weirdo … she wasn’t wrong. Habanero was a pretty patient guy though and took me under his wing or … paw. I became his little shadow. He taught me all about the best parts of being a kitten.
I learned to play tag up and down the stairs, how snuggling with friends (human or feline) is the best way to nap, where to be ready and waiting when the chicken pate is served and where all the sun puddles are in the house. Now I do yoga ON the mat with my foster mom. I even learned that the dog of the house wasn’t so scary after all, so no need for all the dramatics … she even lets me nap in her bed sometimes!
The most important thing I learned from my foster family though is it’s okay to be a little weird … what makes you weird is also what makes you interesting, fun and well … you. I was so busy learning all these things from my foster family I realized I hadn’t had time to hide and let’s be honest, there’s no sun puddles in hiding spots anyways.
I’ve been told I’ve learned so much now that I’m ready to find my furever family. But will anyone want a little weirdo kitten like me? To reassure me, my foster mom found me this quote from some guy named Dr. Suess “When we find someone with weirdness compatible with ours, we team up and call it love.” He’s got a weird name too, so he must know what he’s talking about … that there’s a family out there just right for me. Do you think you’re just the right kind of weird to want to love this quirky kitten?
Chicklet is fully vetted and available for adoption.
