Pet Patrol received a message: ” Hi there. I have four feral kittens in my shop. My backyard is
being totally re landscaped. The garden shed that the kittens were born under is now gone,
and the mother has long disappeared. I brought the cats into the shop for them to be safe, but
don’t know what to do with them after that. They are nervous to be around people but my wife
is able to pet them” He mentioned that they were eight weeks of age and thanked us for
calling him back but he had already made arrangement to “drop them off at another place”
Was this a rescue or city shelter? No, it was at a random farm. After a bit of chat, he realized
that the cats would not do well there. They were not used to large farm animals, the food
quality would be poor and they would never receive any vet care – vaccines or to be spayed or
neutered. With three of the kittens being female, there would be kittens born in the next few
months, totaling up to 18 new unwanted kittens. Not fair to anyone. Within a few hours these
lovely cats were at the sanctuary ready to be cared for and loved
Ford and Fuji were very shy when they arrived at the sanctuary and took some time to become
comfortable in their foster’s house. But they are now confident, playful and affectionate kittens!
This brother and sister duo are very attached to each other and even will walk side by side
with their tails wrapped around each other’s backs. Ford is the calm big brother and is the
more adventurous of the two. He loves to be pet and will even flop over to ask for belly rubs.
Fuji is more cautious and lets her brother go first to make sure things are safe. Once she
feels comfortable she is very playful and especially loves to chase her plastic springs. She
loves head and butt scratches, although is not as comfortable being picked up as her brother.
They are ready to be adopted together into their forever home. One that will welcome them
into the family and keep them safely indoors.
