Hi. My name is Dakota and I'm just a little kitten. People say I'm adorable! Do you think I'm cute? My favorite things at the shelter are snuggling with other kittens and wet food. When you adopt me, please adopt a kitten buddy with me. I even have a sister here, her name is Hazel, maybe you can adopt us both? That will help me to feel safe in your home. After we get to know each other, I'll follow you everywhere, but please don't rush me. I have trust issues and will tell you if I'm scared with a hiss. I'd probably feel better in a quiet home with adults, but might be okay with older children if they are gentle with me and give me alone time when I need it. Just like people, cats and kittens need time away to rest, and providing a space to do so is necessary in order to keep a happy home. This can be as simple as putting up a cat tower or setting up a baby gate so that cats can have time alone. I'll need a lot of time adjusting to a whole house. Please let me stay in just one room for a few weeks or more so I can get comfortable. But I know, if you give me a chance and take things slow, we'll be best friends fur-ever.

Please come meet me in the Coral adoption room.
