Michelle says: Sylvester was going to be put to sleep at the local shelter because he was a bottle baby. Any kittens under one pound and not eating on their own are automatically put to sleep. Sometimes they call the rescues, but sadly they don't really have the employee bandwidth. So he just happened to be very lucky that a rescue was there that day volunteering. He was brought to my husband and me to care for.

What a spoiled and silly boy he turned into! He was a cuddler and super talkative. He loved to chase feathers, play with toys, sneak and pounce. His favorite "toy" was his foster sibling Debbie! He'd like to be held but then he would DART off to lay and wrestle with her. We nicknamed him Gonzo because he was totally nutso. But really cute. He was adopted with another kitten from another foster home.

His markings look like my kitty's - she has a black chin, too! It's so cute.

Fostering is such a rewarding experience! If you have room and a bit of extra love, you should consider it. I usually get babies with moms since other fosters have adult cats who won't tolerate another adult. My 3 don't care. It's fun to watch their little purrsonalities develop.

Cute picture of Sylvester. He looks very spunky and sweet. Thank you for opening your hearts and home for this little tyke. It pains me that innocent babies are euthanized through no fault of their own.

Sylvester is too cute for words. He has that crazy kitten look here and yet is obviously also a love bug. Bless you for caring for these babies. Glad to hear he found a loving forever home:)

Sylvester is a beauty for sure. What I can never understand is what kind of a person can look at this little breathing piece of kittenhood and have the heart to put him to sleep.

My black-and-white boy was named Sylvester J. Cat. I really love tuxedo kitties named Sylvester, especially when they are as super cute as this little guy! You did a great job with him!
