Rescue:

As told by her rescuer: As a Pet Patrol Volunteer I live in a village surrounded by farms and is close to cottages. Cats are dropped off frequently by people thinking they will find food and shelter on the farms, but the cats end up being picked on because everyone needs the food…no extra for more mouths. I have a feeding station set up and I noticed Lana in early December. She came close but always ran away when I went outside. I hadn’t seen her for a couple months so I thought maybe she moved on or had been hit by a car; coyotes and farm dogs are around also. One day I received a call from my neighbour who had humanely trapped this little calico while trying to get a skunk that lived under his house. Lana was terrified being in the trap but calmed down after being talked to. I brought her to Pet Patrol and once she was in a cage, safe, she let us know how grateful she was that she didn’t have to be constantly alert to trouble. Lana is very friendly and wants a home where she can stay inside and watch out the window…safe!

Personality:

Lana has become a social little cat. Initially quite shy and unsure of living in a house, she has really made herself at home. She loves to play fetch with the kitty springs for hours and hours on end. No matter how many times you throw it, she brings it back and drops it on your feet. If she loses all the springs under the couch she will settle for a toy that squeaks! Lana loves to be petted, and will purr loudly with the attention. She is still startled easily, so consideration and patience is needed with her. A quiet home is preferred. Late at night as things are quieting down, she even gets into having her belly rubbed softly. Lana is food motivated and can hear the auto feeder from anywhere in the house…launching from a deep sleep for that first bite of kibble. She is a dear little cat who has adjusted to the dramatic change in her lifestyle, all for the better. She is ready to be adopted into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.
