Adorable calico kitten Fia arrived in a Washington DC-area foster home with foster mom Abby Meltzer. The kitten was only three weeks old and needed round-the-clock bottle feeding, generally needed until four and sometimes up to eight weeks old.
Fia was cute as a button, and everyone fell in love with her little calico face. According to Jackson Galaxy, the beautiful tricolor coat pattern is considered calico when there is more than 25% white. Otherwise, the kitty may be considered a tortoiseshell or a torbie (tortoiseshell-tabby) like our own Jugg and Zig Zag.
But, as, you’ll see, a calico can still have “tortidude,” that lovable feisty purrsonality.
“Welcome Fia! She’s about 3 weeks and just the cutest little calico.”
Calico Fia is A ‘Little Attack Kitty’
Although a calico, it seems Fia has what we call ‘tortidude,’ when she’s hungry. Watching her foster mama eat, she edges carefully forward with one paw, staring at the food.
“Can I have a little bite? Just a tiny little taste, please? You won’t even notice it’s gone. I’m invisibe,” says the TikTok audio. “I’m here just in case you didn’t see me. This doesn’t look safe.”
“I was trying to explain cute aggression to Fia,” Meltzer joked.
“This cat can have all the foods, all the toys, all my money and home.. I’ll just be the butler! Look at this cuteness! 😍” commented one person.
Fia was a “little attack kitty,” with her mama’s hand and was ready to take on the world. Even while snuggling by herself on the pillows, she was working on her bunny kick. But she would soon have a new friend to wrestle with instead of a hand. By having another kitten to play with, she could learn ‘how to cat,’ and about boundaries. That would make it easier for them both to find a forever home.
Wrestling a New Friend Instead of Hands
A kitten with so much energy needs a playmate, and soon Fia meets her match in Fletcher, a pretty grey and white purring machine and “tiny tiger” about her age. Right away, they were wrestling buddies.
“Fia has a new furriend! Meet Fletcher he’s dreamy.”
The two kittens bonded, even forming a little heart, touching toes as they napped between high-energy playtime. Although Fia was always a ball of energy, she also enjoyed nothing more than snuggling with Fletcher after intense wrestling matches.
Fia and Fletcher are another example of why adopting in duos is usually the best idea. These two adore each other and become ridiculously cute best friends.
Adopting a Dynamic Wrestling Duo Like Fia & Fletcher
Someone in the DC area was lucky to adopt this little dynamic duo. If you’re considering adopting kittens, consider a bonded duo. It makes it easier for you and for kittens to adjust to their new lives as your fluffy companions.
