I'm looking for a new home.  My human parents split up and didn't want me and Adelaide, so we need to find a new place to live. Adelaide and I aren't related, but we were both adopted out by the same family  when we were kittens. We're both real sweet, and were raised in a home with children and another cat.  I'm a fetcher: I brought people's toys and stuff upstairs to my human mom every night.

Addie and I are both in a foster home now, where we are getting lots of TLC.  I adjusted easily -- I couldn't wait to explore my new house, and visit with my new foster mom and dad.  I'm a very social cat, and love to play and run and interact with people.  I love to chase my favorite toys around the house, especially that feather-wand-thing which flies around the living room! After I'm done playing, I like cuddle up next to you and be petted and stroked. Won't you please take me home?

Did you know black cats are the last to be adopted, and first to be euthanized at shelters? But did you know that black cats are considered good luck in Britain?  The Fat Cat Rescue people think black cats are really wonderful, and that God gave them great personalities so that people would love them.

My original post about me said:

Hi there!  My name is Mercedes.  I'm a gentle and loving kitten that is as cute as can be.  I will run and greet you and purr when you pick me up. I enjoy playing with my siblings and climbing high up on the cat tree.  I would love to be part of your family.
