Rescue:

Pet Patrol received a call from one of our former foster homes, who lives in a small tourist village. She had taken care of many cats for us in the past and had done a great job. She called me to say there was a pretty orange mother cat, with her four little kittens, running around her street. She was concerned for them, and since the village had a number of strays, breeding freely, she didn’t want to add to the problem. I asked her to ask around to see who is feeding them and then ask their cooperation in rescuing this little feline family. The woman discovered that a gentleman on the street was finding homes for them, but in the meantime they were not brought inside for safety and that set off alarm bells. We were still open to bringing in the kittens and mom as well, but the man was convincing in his determination to look after the cats. Fast forward, from summer to fall, and a neighbour from the same street brought in Everett and his three siblings. You are correct in your thoughts, it was the same feline family! The mother cat has been rescued and a home found for her, but by now the kittens were either friendly or frightened. We had our work cut out for us.

Personality:

Everett and his sister Etta were the friendliest of the crew (Emilia and Emmett needed more time). They were easy to pet and cuddly. Picking up was something that had to be learned. They developed quickly into nice gentle and loving kittens. They love to play and run around after toys and tails. Scampering up the kitty climber to the highest perch to look out over the kitty playroom, and outside as well. They have no desire to go outside any more and are quite content in their new environment at the Pet Patrol sanctuary. Everett is ready to be adopted into her forever home, hopefully with a sibling or playmate. One that will welcome him into the family and will keep her safely indoors.
