One of Pet Patrol’s volunteers has a feeding station on her property and a trail camera. She has it running often and one night this handsome orange tabby showed up. It was the dead of winter and he went straight for the food dish. He would show up randomly here and there but not every day. A few months later he started coming daily and would eat all the food and then disappear again. Difference was his coat was not as clean, he looked rough and then he started to limp. Kosmo needed medical care and she set up a humane trap to rescue him. It was not so easy, since Kosmo is a boy from the street and quite wise to anything different. It took over three months for him to finally be convinced to go into the humane trap and onto safety. By this time he was barely putting weight on the limb. Immediately Kosmo was taken into the vet and assessed. No broken bones and no wounds so it will just take time and patience. He now moves around without any issues.
Kosmo is a very observant boy and watches every move the volunteers at the sanctuary make. If they get too close, he will head across the room away from them, to watch from a different vantage point. He likes the comforts of being indoors, like a soft place to lay down and sleep, endless food, and other cats to hang out with but people are not his thing. We feel that Kosmo would benefit from a life on a safe hobby farm. One that will provide him with the necessities of life and keep an eye out for him as well. He would be a great mouser. Kosmo will come for treats in the evening which will be an easy way to get him indoors when the barn is closed up. He does like to have a buddy cat, and will snuggle up to them, so it is best he is with accepting felines. He will hiss if people get too close but sometimes you can sneak a chin scratch in if you come with treats in hand. He has been known to swat if he feels you are invading his space. Kosmo is ready to be adopted onto a hobby farm. One that will welcome him and keep an eye out for him.
