Jalapeno's delicate buff and white coloring and diminutive size make him look like a mild, little pepper at first glance. But once you get to know him, you will realize this little guy is very much like the hot pepper he is named after...full of zesty flavor and pizzazz!

Jalapeno is a very bright kitten who has been ready to go from the start. He was only a few days old when he came to live in his foster home and after just a few tries he learned how to drink from a bottle, allowing him to thrive and become the leader of the litter! He was first to open his eyes, to figure out the bottle, to eat from a dish, to use the litter box, and is always the first one to look for an adventure! His best buddy is his brother Jorge. They've been close friends since they were born and would love to be adopted together!

Jalapeno is a great combination of explorer and love bug. Even when he is running and playing he will come over to his foster mama for a cuddle and kitty kisses. He'll cutely roll on his back for belly rubs and skillfully make his way to your shoulder to say hello. Jalapeno loves to run and play, and will boldly climb to see what he can find. When he's all tuckered out from playing he will come over to be held while he takes a nap or will put himself to bed in his crate.

Jalapeno would quickly adapt to any home where he can play, receive lots of love and have cozy companionship. He would likely be happiest with a furry friend to play with and for snuggles. Jorge would be an excellent choice! If you're ready to add the sweetest kind of spice to your world, contact us to meet Jalapeno!
