Hickory’s mom, Hazel was first spotted scurrying across the street of a quiet cul de sac. The woman who spotted her realized that Hazel was frightened, so very thin and in need of help and food. It didn’t take long for this kitty to realize where the feeding station was, and she regularly arrived for her daily meal. But she remained fearful and would not come near the food if any people were in sight. One day it was obvious the she was pregnant and before they could arrange a live trap for her she had given birth to the kittens. By now the woman had her neighbours on board, watching for Hazel and keeping track of her. They noticed her slipping into the wood pile next door, and within a few weeks her little kittens were  peeking their heads out to see the big wide world. A live trap was set up and just before a thunderstorm Hazel was rescued. With the teeming rain, she was brought into safety and that is when we realized that she is indeed a friendly and affectionate cat. The next morning the wood pile was meticulously dismantled until they found the babies. They were almost at the very bottom, in a little cave created by the logs and quickly rescued and reunited with Hazel. Hickory, Heidi, Hilda and Hanson are all safe and sound now, and happy to be living indoors


Sweet little Hickory is the only brown tabby in this feline family of grey and white kitties. Now we know what his daddy looked like. His personality has really evolved from being a timid little wood pile kitten to becoming cuddly and affectionate. He is playful and outgoing and likes to be with his brother Hector. They have great games together, and although Hickory is the smallest of the litter, he can keep up to the rest of the kittens just fine. He is by far the fastest and can out run them and is quite agile when catching a runaway toy Hickory is ready to be adopted into his forever home. One that will welcome him into the family and keep him safely indoors.
