He is already house-trained and has been vaccinated.
A bit about Sega:
Hi, I'm Sega! I was born to a feral mama and my rescuer decided a different fate for me. My daily routine right now consists of napping, running around with my siblings and eating yummy kitten food. I love playing with cat toys and my siblings, but nothing beats one-on-one attention from a human. I'm a purring machine! Come play with me today!

Gareth, domestic shorthair
Gareth is a winsome male domestic shorthair kitten in the care of Friends For Life Animal Shelter & Sanctuary.
He has already been vaccinated and house-trained.
Notes from Gareth's caretakers:
A small boy with a big heart, Gareth came to Friends For Life with his sisters after being rescued from another area shelter. Gareth, despite being the only boy, is the smallest of the bunch, and often gets picked on by his sisters. You can usually find him in a human's lap begging for attention.

Elsie is a darling female calico kitten currently residing at E-Rescue-Houston Inc.
Elsie would do best in a quiet home with no small children under the age of 12. Rest assured, she has already been vaccinated, spayed, house-trained and microchipped.
From Elsie's current caretaker:
Meet Elsie. She is a super adorable kitten, but a little shy at first. She is a playful little girl who needs someone willing to be patient with her, and who realizes she will warm up once she trusts you.
