Hello! They call me Thumper. I am a medium hair grey kitten who is quite bashful. I will come by you at night and will accept petting but I’m still working on trusting people. I am 8 months old.
I've learned while being in my foster home that the other kitties come to my foster family for affection. I say to myself “Oh, I wish I could do that too”. I watch and watch and guess what? I have started to come around and be closer to people in the past week. One day I got so brave I hopped on my foster Moms lap when she was watching TV. They call that baby steps but for a shy girl like me it's like one giant step.
Maybe my new family will be understanding on my shyness and can understand that time & patience for me to come to you. I know you'll have a lap waiting for me.
I started my life living in the backyard of a wonderful Chicago family. They took great care of our mom when they realized she was going to have babies. They brought us inside to be born. Thankfully, we were born there not outside where we had no way of staying warm or finding food.
They then called my foster family who sees this quite often; so many homeless kitties and they continued to take care of us in a safe, indoor environment.
I love to play with my siblings and the other foster family cats. In the beginning I was not quite a lap kitty and I’m a bit scared of people but if you are willing to work with me, I’m sure I will build a trust with you.
I’ll tell some secrets my foster Mom learned about me to build my trust. Classical music calms down and I LOVE Made by Nacho treats, well really any treats get this girl motivated!
Know what I also love? My sister Po. You might have seen the pictures of me cuddling with a white kitty. That's Po. She's braver than me and I hope when a family comes to meet me, they can also meet Po and we go to our forever home together.
My foster family has been so wonderful in taking care of me and my siblings. My other siblings have all found homes and now it's my turn. I haven't been around young kids or dogs. I might do ok if they don't scare me. If I get scared I might hide and run.
I will get close to you during day if you have those treats nearby. Please consider adopting me with Po. That would be so nice if I could go with to my new home with one of my her as it will make the transition easier. You will fall in love with them instantly and we can be one big family!
Thumper and Po are located in our foster home in Hanover Park. To meet Thumper and/or her siblings please complete an adoption application.
Thank you for choosing to adopt!
