At just 12-weeks-old, poor little Piper already has some special needs. She came from a situation where she didn’t receive any human contact, and is quite fearful. Kittens like Piper tend to require a patient, loving home that is dedicated to her progress. Her foster home has already seen her come a long way and she can be held and touched. In order to move this little one onto the next stage of her program, she will need to find a furever home that is sensitive to her needs. Witnessing the breakthroughs with these shy babies are life moments you will never forget. Once they open up to you, it’s the greatest gift a human can be given.
