There is nothing at all going on with me, I am super healthy and sweet. And I’m soooo happy to be out of that box and that DOA is taking care of me now! I’ve been checked, get food and cuddles, and going to foster home soon. So nice! That also means, unfortunately, it is not possible to adopt or book me. Because a lot of people have asked about me already. And I think that’s super sweet, but I’m going to grow up first. But there are here at DOA many more kittens and moms!
