Pet Patrol received a text message from one of their volunteers who lives way out in the country, in the boonies as they say. Her cat had recently slipped out of the house, again, and she had observed cat tracts in the mud and presumed it was him. She set up a humane trap to safely bring him back inside, he was just under the back porch, so she thought this would be quick and easy. But instead of it being her kitty, this time it was a new cat, one that she had never seen before. An orange and white boy who she named Rusty. Did he come from a neighbouring farm? That would have been quite a fair distance for him to travel since neighbours can’t be seen from her house, and you literally have to drive to them. Was he maybe abandoned by his owners? Quiet and concerned, Rusty was quickly brought into Pet Patrol care where we made him comfortable and observed his personality.


Since that time we have worked diligently with Rusty to socialize him. He probably was born on a rural property, but had never been touched by people. At this time in his life, although young, he has chosen not to accept our attempts at touching him. He will actually dip really low to the ground to avoid our pets. He loves other cats though and makes a great buddy, always walking beside them affectionately or cuddled up on the big cat bed. He has a magnificent coat with beautiful auburn and orange colours that is as soft as silk when you get the opportunity to touch it. He is playful and fun loving, grateful to be indoors in a warm and loving environment, but still prefers the company of cats to people. Rusty is ready to be adopted into his forever home as a second or third kitty in the home. One that will welcome him into the family, accept him for who he is, and keep him safely indoors.
