Pet Patrol was contacted by two caring and kind-hearted women who have been feeding a
feral cat colony in their urban neighbourhood. They had been trying for a while to rescue
Midgey’s mom, Misha, a mother cat who has had at least four or five litters of kittens. When
they noticed in late February that she was pregnant again, they did their best to rescue her
using a humane trap, but Misha was wise to it and would not go in. The women set up a large
dog cage instead, which was not so enclosed and soon after Misha gave birth to three kittens.
It was too cold for them to be outdoors so the women placed a cat carrier next to the cage and
Misha moved the three kittens into it, but she would not go in it herself (not enough room). One
of the women went outside and picked up the carrier and finding Misha in the dog cage,
quickly shut the door and brought everyone inside. Sadly, one of the three kittens did not
survive as it was exposed to the cold for too long, but the other two kittens (Maggie and
Molly) were now safe and warm. To everyone’s surprise forty eight hours later the last kitten
was born and became known as the Bonus Baby and that is little Midgey.
Midgey might be the tiniest of the litter but don’t let that fool you, she can keep up with the rest
just fine. When she is playing with her favourite fuzzy ball no one is taking it away. It is quite
cute to see a little two pound kitten growling at her sisters letting them know that it is all hers,
as she carries it away in her mouth. Like the other kittens she is all in for a good wrestling
match and usually comes out the winner. Midgey would do well to be adopted with one of her
sisters, or if there is another friendly cat in the home to keep her company. Our little Midgey is
ready to be adopted into her forever home One that will welcome her into the family and keep
her safely indoors.
