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.


Fawne is very good with being cuddled and will sleep with you at night. She likes a nice massage, chin scratch and raises her tail for petting. She cant be cautious and inquisitive at the same time. She runs and plays chase with her brother and will pounce on him to instigate a game of Tag. They are quie attached to each other and she can be found grooming him, and sometimes bossing him around a little bit. She has recently been introduced to children and did pretty good. Fawn is ready to be adopted into her forever home with her brother Faris. One that will welcome them into the family and keep them safely indoors.
