Bonnie is your typical kitten. She’s adorable, fun, playful and fearless. She runs and jumps on the other kitties enticing them to join her in a game of chase and tumble. When she gets tuckered out she likes to sit on her temp mom’s lap or lay by her to get affection, pets and love. This sweet little girl would make the perfect companion for anyone.
