Bug, dilute tortoiseshell
Bug is a darling female dilute tortoiseshell kitten being cared for at Animal Aware.
Her vaccinations are already up to date, and she's already housetrained.
Bug's current caretakers say:
Meet Bug! Bug is tiny but mighty! She had a rough start in life, but has pulled through and has grown into such a fun little kitten! She is playful and has the spirit that would make daisy chains if she had thumbs! She loves to slow down for butt scratches, but also takes her play missions very seriously. She will turn anything that moves into hours of play, and is seriously always finding creative ways to have fun! She is a gentle girl but also can keep up with her rambunctious brothers, who love to wrestle — a bit of a roller-derby type!

Darla is a female tortoiseshell kitten staying at Animal Aware.
Have no fear: She is already housetrained and vaccinated.
Notes from Darla's caretakers:
Meet Darla! She is one of the most stunning creatures to ever walk this earth and she will absolutely melt you. Personality-wise, she is sweet and mellow. She's playful too, but in her own gentle way. She's an observer and really takes in the world around her. She loves to be held, and will melt into a puddle while purring loudly. She also has an independent side, and will go off and explore.

Nick, domestic shorthair
Nick is an adorable male domestic shorthair kitten being kept at Animal Aware.
He has been vaccinated and housetrained.
Here's what Nick's friends at Animal Aware think of him:
Nick is sweet and loves his butt scratches. He has the most beautiful eyes and weasels his way into your heart before you even notice! Nick is also a playful little monkey! He makes the living room into a racetrack with his best buddy, Sebastian. He is the perfect combination of punk and couch potato, and whoever adopts this little man will be so lucky!

Marty, domestic shorthair
Marty is a male domestic shorthair kitten in the care of Wonder Cat Rescue.
Marty is a social butterfly, and he loves other cats. Fear not: He is already housetrained and vaccinated.
Here's what Marty's friends at Wonder Cat Rescue think of him:
This little guy is so much fun. Lots of playful kitten energy — he cannot get enough of his feather wand toy, chasing his crinkle ball around the house, and playing tag with his older foster brother. Marty is pretty active and rambunctious, and we think he would do so well in a home that has another young, playful, energetic kitty. After playtime is over, he loves curling up on the bed next to (or on top of) you, and snuggles down for the night on your pillow with a happy, relaxed, "I'm so happy to be here" purr.
