Darwin's foster mom calls him the Lion King because his fuzzy tabby coat is so regal. Click here for more pictures of Darwin and his siblings, Dora, Domino, and Dolce.
Darwin is not quite the biggest kitten in his litter, but he is the strongest, most agile, and most active. When the kittens are not wrestling, however, Darwin is usually snugged up tight to one of his sisters. He is all lover boy. His sisters clearly love Darwin, too, because we often catch them grooming him. (Well, perhaps they just think he's really dirty!) Darwin would love to be adopted with one of his siblings. Perhaps his twin, Dolce, or his partner in crime, Domino.
We were contacted at the end of June by a kind-hearted lady who needed help with a family of kittens that 'adopted' her when she started feeding their mama. She trained the babies to show up for meals and got most of them used to being petted or held by the time an IAR foster home (mine!) was ready to take them. They came into foster care at about 11 weeks old, and as a result it takes them a little while to get used to new people and new environments. They are incredibly bonded to each other, feisty when they're comfortable, and they turn to their foster mom for cuddly reassurance when they're not. She wouldn't trade that cuddling for the world.
