Starting in early summer, a young male cat (eventually named Darcy), who was very skittish,started passing through a woman’s yard. At first she thought he was an owned cat but he seemed to be getting thinner, like he wasn’t getting fed daily. She put food out for him and he would creep up to the kibble and inhale it, but as soon as he saw her he would be off the porch like a shot. It took several weeks for him to feel comfortable enough to eat while she was watching. He was not a regular visitor and would miss days or meal times. By early fall Darcy would come when she called him and she could pet him while he ate. Eventually, this petting and ear rubs became a routine. As the nights were getting rather cold he started to spend his days and nights in the insulated kitty house on a bench, sheltered in a corner of the porch. From there he was coaxed into the house and was an indoor/outdoor cat for a while, until he adjusted to being inside. By now the temperature was below zero outside and Darcy decided he was not going out any more and has been a happy indoor cat since. Within a few days be came into Pet Patrol care after an extensive search for his original home to no avail.


Once he was comfortable in the house, Darcy’s personality blossomed and he has never looked back. He will race around playfully, give you head bunts, and chat up a storm, all the while his tail would be tilted over his back like a teapot handle. He was one happy fella and gobbled up all the attention and affection we shower on him. His rescuer was so happy that he would have a chance at finding a forever home, yet sad that she would lose such a charming, playful, chatty, affectionate kitty. He will make someone a wonderful companion. Darcy is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors
