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 little torti cat 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 one day a kitten
was hit by a car on the street in front of their home. Barricades were then put up, but soon the
kittens out grew them and could not be confined much longer. 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 indoor life.


Marmalade is a very handsome boy and like his brother Licorice he had a rough start in life
and is building his trust. He enjoys playing with the other cats at his foster home but Licorice
is his favorite. He totally enjoys attention and shows it by rolling about on the floor, or counter,
when being petted. Marmalade will play with every toy in the house and shows off his soccer
play style by batting them about. He is fast, focused and accurate. This orange tabby loves his
food and both he, and Licorice are first in the kitchen at the sound of a can opening. He also
loves curling up in the sun with his litter mate for an afternoon nap. Marmalade is ready to be
adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family with Licorice, and
keep them both safely indoors.
