She'd rather be growing up with YOU!

A frightened little kitten arrived at the SPCA in June with no mother, no siblings, and no kind human to care for her. She was so frightened of everything that she would even hiss at the nursing mother cat who took her in as one of her own! We named this spicy little kitten Paprika. She’s been growing up at the shelter for the past five months, and is getting big, strong, and friendlier by the day.

Paprika is still shy at times. She’s no longer a tiny adorable kitten, although she is beautiful with her bright yellow eyes and striking calico fur. Paprika takes a little time to get to know new people, but she recognizes her friends and purrs and rolls around on her bed when they give her attention. Paprika is almost six months old now, and the most comfort she has known has been what we can provide her at the shelter. Who will take a chance on this kitty, who has had such a rough start to life? We’re seeking someone gentle and patient to give her a loving home.
