A woman pulled her car into Pet Patrol’s parking lot and began to unload a humane trap from
her car. Inside that was a lovely orange and white cat who appeared to be quite unsure of
what was going on. This was Jimmy. The manager of the sanctuary wasn’t sure either as we
were not aware of this cat and did not have any cage space available for him at that moment.
But we couldn’t say no to this lovely boy. Apparently, he had shown up in someone’s backyard
in the spring, had been living in the wooded area near the property and lately in the long grass
in the next lot. This was very unsafe for him, as coyote and fox live in wooded areas and
hawks could swoop down and pick him up. The woman decided to rescue Jimmy before she
left on holidays and headed to the sanctuary. It was quite apparent that the timing for Jimmy
was right as he had quite a runny nose and was feeling rather tired and generally unwell. He
has thrived in our care now and is ready for adoption.
Jimmy is a very nice boy, He loves his people and is content to be around them and flop on the
couch for a nice pet and snuggle. He likes to help with your computer work as well, now having
learned that he can’t walk on the keyboard and is entranced with the printer. He has discovered
the mystery of cat toys and how much fun they can be, especially the laser pen light and
kitty tunnel. Catnip mice are the favourite though. Jimmy is at the sanctuary with the other Pet
Patrol cats and would rather a less feline populated environment, but another cat in his new
home would be great. He is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome
him into the family and keep him safely indoors.
