Pet of the Week: Apple and Rhubarb, sweet bonded kittens found under an old barn

Meet two of the “Sweet as Pie” kittens from 4Paws, Rhubarb and Apple.

Here’s what the 4Paws Rescue Team had to say about this duo:

Meet Rhubarb, one of our “Sweet as Pie” kittens! He is a friendly Siamese mix kitten. He was found under a dusty barn and he is learning the ropes of being an indoor kitty with his brother Apple, who he is bonded to and needs to be adopted with.

He loves pets, and is affectionate with his human fosters and brother. Though he may not be a lap cat, he loves to either snuggle up next to you or hold your hand. You may also find him hugging his brother while napping.

Meet Apple! This chocolate tabby kitten… quickly bonded with a slightly older foster kitten named Rhubarb and has become his shadow.

Rhubarb is teaching timid Apple that humans aren’t so bad. Apple is warming up to playing with all the toys he can get his little kitty paws on, and doesn’t mind head scratches and belly rubs when he’s sleepy. His brother, Rhubarb, must be close by or he gets anxious. We hope with lots of love and Rhubarb’s guiding paws, this playful kitten will come out of his shell quicker.

The kittens would do best in a quiet home or in a home that realizes they need to acclimate at a slower pace. They are being housed with older children right now.

Are you, Rhubarb and Apple the perfect match?
