A big, handsome, silky, sturdily-built young black kitty with dark gray undertones. Sweet Emmett has medium-length, fluffy exquisitely soft fur, big furry paws (fur between his toes!), and huge soulful eyes. more photos
Emmett is like a very sweet, very quiet puppy who will never get bigger, never bark, and never need walking. His enthusiasm (and vigorous tail) is unstoppable, his loyalty matched by his desire to play with you and roll around on the floor. Now, imagine that puppy loves to be petted, purrs a lot, has the softest fluffiest fur imaginable, and lives for climbing things and eating treats.
Emmett wants to be your best friend. He wants to know where you are at all times and is happy to curl up on a cushy chair next to you while you work. He loves chasing a feather or a catnip mouse or a whippy twig, and is a fiend for jumping through a hoop for treats. If you treat him well, he'll stay by your side and come running with a thunder of kitten feet whenever you call him. He is very quiet, sweet, and patient, and wants to please you very much.
He also enjoys things to the fullest, whether it's eating food or treats, chasing anything, curling up somewhere soft, or cleaning somebody.
He came to IAR as the big brave protector (and groomer) of his sister Alice (their video). Alice was adopted, and Emmett is now great friends with Tycho the mellow orange kitty. (a few photos of Tycho and Emmett together)
Emmett was found with six siblings in a rural area near Burlington. Apparently they were dumped nearby and left to a grim fate. Now all the kittens have made it to safety, and Emmett has become huge and fairly bursting with life and fun.
