Pet Patrol had known about Petey for about two months and he was on our waiting list. There
have been so many kittens needing to be brought in out of the cold that it took a long time for
him to be able to be brought into our care. He was at a man’s house, who is known to rescue
cats and shelter them in his shop when need be. He walks to work every day, seven minutes
away, to a farm, where he does everything that any farmer would do. There are chicken barns
there amongst other things, and this is where Petey first showed up. Affectionate,
loving but ever so skinny, it was obvious that he had been out for a while searching for help.
He moved into the back storage area where it was cool in the summer but warm in the winter
with other friendly cats who live as indoor/outdoor cats on the property. Petey was so hungry
that besides eating his food he would steal the other cat’s food as well. Then one day he
decided he was going to follow the man home. He walked seven minutes on his tiny little feet
back to the man’s house, and sat on his porch, waiting for him to come outside. And that was
that! Petey then made himself at home until Pet Patrol was able to take him in.
This lovely boy has been described as extremely loving and affectionate. Right from the beginning there has never been any worry about skittishness or aggression, Petey is all about love.
He is easy to pick up and carry around and is so appreciative of being rescued. He has integrated into the sanctuary with the other cats without incident and his calm and playful personality shines through. He is a charmer. Petey is ready to be adopted into his forever home, one
that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.
