Hi I’m Jaycee! You can see in my picture that I am licking my lips - that’s because I’m the hunter of my group of siblings and cousins. But don’t worry - I’m not even remotely ferocious - just playful, eager and the leader of the pack! I was rescued, cold and hungry, from a feral cat colony behind a restaurant in New Haven, but since then, with just a little TLC, I have shown how awesome I am. What I am hunting for now - the only thing I’m hunting for - is a forever family, so please come to meet me soon!
Hi I’m Kimber! Rearing and ready to go - at all times! I was rescued with my siblings from a bad section of New Haven, cold and nearly starved to death. But, with a little TLC from GNCHP (and a few good meals, of course) I am thriving - I am playful, friendly, sweet and more. I am just 14 weeks old, so I am fully ready to find a family to grow up with. I’m hoping that they will be rearing and ready to go, too, when it comes to playing and laughing at my kitten antics!
