An email came into Pet Patrol as we were at the peak of our fall kitten season. “There are several feral cats in my (woodland) neighbourhood who keep having kittens. I heard one crying yesterday – a kitten (Faris) had fallen into my mostly empty rain barrel. I dried it off and placed it into the only thing I had, a gerbil cage. I rescued it’s sibling (his sister Fawne) in a live trap right after that. I gave them some canned food. One seems friendlier as it let me handle it without biting/scratching me while I towel dried it. The other hissed when I picked it up to put it into the gerbil cage, so not as friendly right now. Do you – or maybe you can suggest other places – that take kittens in? They are probably 6 weeks old.” The next day’s message: “both these striped kittens are becoming socialized – btw, one is a girl, the other a boy. Now, basically a week later after rescue they will not only let me pet them inside their cage but also allow me to pick them up. So please let me know when space becomes available (soon I hope) as I am sure both these cuties will get adopted.” Within a week we were able to find a foster home for Faris and Fawne and they have thrived since.


Faris is very brave, nothing seems to scare him, and he hasn’t met a toy he doesn’t like. But he is a softy for his sister Fawne, and will cry if he can’t see her. They are very attached to each other he and likes to play games of Chase, Hide & Seek and wrestle too. He is gentle and affectionate, likes a nice chin scratch and will raise his tail when you pet him. He was recently introduced to children and did pretty well. Faris is ready to be adopted into a forever home with his sister Fawne. One that will welcome both of them into the family and keep them safely indoors.
