A man had left a desperate message on our phone line about four cats that he and his wife
had been caring for. In early May a pretty little torti showed up on their deck, very pregnant.
Not wanting her to have the babies just anywhere they provided her with shelter and fed her
twice daily. The kittens were born healthy and the couple enjoyed watching them grow and
explore their gardens. But there were risks in allowing them to remain outside, and a kitten
was hit by a car on the street in front of their home. Barricades were then put up, but the kittens out grew them and would not be confined to the yard. A local cat rescue said she would
take the mom and the three remaining kittens, Oreo, Licorice and Marmalade, have them
spayed and neutered them and find homes. Then the unthinkable happened. The woman said
she couldn’t keep them and would be releasing them back onto the couples property. Oh no.
They could not find another rescue to take them. Knowing friends of theirs fostered for Pet
Patrol, a plan was put in place and the cats were transported to them and are now under the
umbrella of Pet Patrol. They are safe and sound and adjusting to life indoors very well


Licorice is a handsome boy, lighthearted and playful who loves racing around with his brother
Marmalade. One of his delights is raiding the jar that one of his humans keeps his spongy
earplugs in, and then batting them about. These earplugs can be found all through the house
courtesy of Licorice. He adores attention and throws himself into it after his initial impulse is
to briefly hide. He readily will flop onto the floor and turn from side to side reveling in a full
body petting session. Licorice is a talker and expresses his opinion both verbally and with
energetic moves. After a vigorous full house play session his finds his best bud Marmalade
and curls up with him for a deep cat nap. Licorice is ready to be adopted into his forever
home with Marmalade. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them safely
