Eileen was part of a colony of barn cats that lived across the road from a young couple, and
the property owner was an elderly man. He was feeding the cats but eventually one day it
became apparent that he could no longer live independently and he moved into a nursing home.
His house is still sitting empty. The young couple took over feeding the cats because there
was no one else around and cats were starving. They started to migrate over to their farm
and have been living in their drive in shed. With no insulated living space in there a kind
woman provided a couple of insulated Rubbermaid totes for shelter and a bit of extra warmth.
The couple have dogs and didn’t want to bring the cats inside nor do they really want them. They
were able to find homes for a few of them. In a message the couple stated “while the elderly
man did feed the cats he wasn’t really nice to them”. Now in Pet Patrol care we want Eileen’s
future to be care free.
Pretty Eileen took a bit of time to adjust to sanctuary living, with new routines and so many cats
around, but before long she was comfortable with the other cats and the environment. For Eileen,
the playroom is like a wonderland. So many toys! She loves to chase balls and wand toys, and she
is also friendly and affectionate with people. Eileen would do best in a home with adults and another
kitty for company. Eileen is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her
and keep her safely indoors.
