A woman who has rescued a number of cats from her area, about 45 minutes from the
sanctuary, told Pet Patrol about a couple in their early sixties who needed to rehome some of
their cats. Although their house looks tidy from outside, upon entering it she found definite
signs of hoarding: the house was crowded with furniture and objects, with narrow pathways
between, and every surface had something on it. There was a strong pungent smell
everywhere, and about thirty cats and kittens, including Goldie, a sweet-natured calico, and
Genie who was very pregnant. There were empty cat food and water dishes around the house,
evidence that the cats – several of whom were pregnant — were not being fed regularly. The
couple is living on an extremely limited income and were not buying cat food or cleaning up
after the cats. The rescuer left bags of food to help, but knew that the cats needed to be taken
out of the situation. She drove through a blizzard to bring Goldie and Genie safely to the


When Genie came into Pet Patrol, she was a very pregnant expectant mama. She has had her
kittens and raised them, and now it is her turn to find a forever home. Genie is a playful girl who
enjoys chasing the laser light, batting balls around, and sometimes carrying a stuffed mouse in
her mouth. She is not too sure about dogs but is ok with other cats. She won’t take long to
settle in and explore her new home. She is learning to enjoy a good chin and ear scratch.
Genie would do well in a home with another cat, or being adopted with her sister Goldie
