Earlier in the year Pet Patrol took in three lovely, well socialized kittens from a country property in another small town. The mother cat had disappeared and the people had hand raised them, making them very people oriented babies. The husband and wife, and their children, enjoyed having the kittens but knew they needed to control the over population of cats and not let things get out of hand. Fast forward to early summer and another stray showed up in the shop and had a litter of four kittens, Poppy being one of them. The mother was quite friendly, but when the kittens came into our care they were more frightened. Strange. It seems that although the mother cat liked people, when it came to touching her kittens she was wary and would growl. This told the kittens to beware of the humans, and the people weren’t sure what to do so they avoided touching the babies. With time and patience, after the kittens came into our care, Poppy and her three other siblings came around quite nicely and are now ready to be adopted.


Poppy is very sweet and gentle. Doesn’t mind being pet or receiving a good scratch behind her ears. She had to learn about simple things in a house, like stairs, cat scratching posts and the vacuum. She is a lovely little cat who can entertain herself with a toy, like the plastic springs or a cat nip mouse, but also enjoys the company of her siblings and other playful cats in her foster home. Poppy is still a little timid, but easy to love and ready to be adopted, hopefully with a sibling, into her forever home. One that will welcome her into the family and keep her safely indoors.
