One of Pet Patrol Board members was visiting family and heard a cat meowing outside. It
always seems to happen that the lost cats migrate to her no matter where she is. This little cat
was on the fence crying and the surprised family members had never seen her before. She
was easily coaxed over and pet, it was then discovered that she was very pregnant, her belly
was huge. A little dirty with some leaves stuck in her long hair, she was extremely hungry and
obliviously did not have a home to go to. Our volunteer went knocking on a few doors and
nobody seemed to own the cat or know who did, but she had been hanging around a few
neighbors’ backyards for a while. Notices were posted about her on the lost cat sites, but no
luck finding the owner. By this time the kitty had wandered off with a full belly of food and
sought out shade in the green belt behind the house. Being black she disappeared into the
wooded area but our volunteer sought her out again and brought her into Pet Patrol care. Now
named Harlequin she gave birth to six lovely kittens who have been raised in a dedicated and
loving foster home.


Harlequin is definitely enjoying her life indoors. Her past struggles are behind her, and she has
been able to become a carefree, and happy go lucky girl. From the beginning she has shown
us that she is a very friendly and cuddly girl, coming up to greet people and asking for attention. She loves to snuggle up beside you on the couch, the bed or on your lap, creating a calm
and relaxed moment. Harlequin is starting to play now, something she never was able to do
before, lack of toys and seriousness of survival was her world at the time. But now she will bat
a ball around, follow a wand toy and watch the curser on the computer with interest. She can
be found stretched out on the floor or laying near a window being the neighbourhood watch
cat. Harlequin is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the
family and keep her safely indoors
