Rescue:

It is not uncommon for cats to be abandoned, whether it is in the city or the country, and left to fend for themselves. They have no real resources for the kind of comfort they have been raised in and many don’t survive. One woman who owns a mixed farm (cows, horses, goats and sheep) has had several cats dropped off at the end of her lane, and she has chosen to help them along the way. They are well taken care of and she provides them with a box stall in her barn that is set up with a play area for the cats. This includes scratching posts, comfy beds, insulated houses, toys to play with and she takes time to socialize them. They are well fed, cared for and loved. One day an orange female cat, Dot, showed up at the barn and it was obvious she was pregnant, so the woman scooped her up and put her in the stall. Dot was very friendly and she had her kittens, Dash & Ditto, the next day. The woman had been working with a TNR group to have all her barn cats spayed and neutered, and she felt that Dot needed a place where she could raise her kittens in a warm and comfortable home. The next day they were taken to one of Pet Patrol’s foster homes and all have thrived since then.

Personality:

Dot has adjusted to living indoors, but because she was raising her kittens she had not had full run of the house. That will be an adventure for her. She is an affectionate cat, likes the attention, and is content to be with her people. She has learned how much fun toys can be and is quite kitten like at times. Dot was a very attentive mother cat and also took care of an orphan kitten as well, so we predict she will be good company in her forever home. Dot is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.
