Relish (New Milford)

Type of Animal: 
DSH Tuxedo

Meet Master Cornelius Relish - we just call him Relish, or Relli. He was just a 5 week old kitten when we pulled him out of the Waterbury Pound. Prior to that he had been brought in in terrible condition, and the vet had minimal hope that he would survive.

He's doing great now, but he's very, very shy and will need a home that can give him lots of love and nurturing.

Relish lost his mommy and his siblings, and he's struggling to find his way in this great big world. He's been very lonely, but luckily a momma cat named Josie and her two older kittens have taken him in and given him the love and support he needs.

In fact, an interesting bonding has begun to take shape between Relish and Josie's kitten Markle (the black cat in the photos with Relish). Markle sleeps with Relish and you can tell how much security Relish receives from his big brother Markle.

We had expected Relish to bond with another kitten his age in the foster home but that hasn't happened, so we'd like nothing more than to see Relish and Markle get adopted together. Are you open to that? In just a few short months they will be the same size, and Markle is strong and confident - just what Relish needs to come out of his shell.

Both cats are great with the dogs living in the home.

Relish is neutered, vaccinated and FIV/FeLV negative.
