"Tarcin" is Turkish for "cinnamon." It's the perfect name for a cat that's a mix of sweet and spice!

Tarcin has an exciting, unique story (see below) - maybe that's why he's such an adventurous guy! He jumps like a kangaroo, climbs to the highest spots he can find, and scrambles through the cat tunnel to chase mouse toys. He's very busy and therefore accepts kisses and cuddling by invitation only, thank you very much! Tarcin has loved every stranger he's met and, even though he hasn't met any kids, he has plenty of energy to go around! Except when he's done playing... then poof - he's down for a nap.

Tarcin and his three brothers were rescued in Kuwait! Their amazing rescuer, who is also fostering them, was deployed there and successfully extracted them when they were trapped in a manhole. When the deployment ended, the lucky kittens came back to Austin, too! They've traveled a long way to find their forever homes, need to be adopted in pairs - ideally, they would be adopted together as a family of brothers! - and must remain indoor cats. Read their story in its entirety here:

Tarcin and his brothers do everything together, and it is adorable how they support each other and enjoy each other's company. They eat, play, and sleep together in the cutest forms of cuddling!
