Facts about Patience - Courtesy Listing

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
This is a courtesy listing.

We found Patience laying in the street in front of our home, underweight and severely scratched across her face and eye. She has received care and is now happy and healthy. We are unable to keep her because of our other pets. She is about 2 yrs. old, 8-10 lbs. Very sweet, playful, curious, quiet & friendly. Litter boxed trained, spayed with rabies shot. We’ve had Patience with us for about 3 months now and have gotten to know her personality well. We have two cats, both older than she is. Patience seems like she wants to get along with them, but she is very dominant and mostly chases them away. I would say she would do best as an only pet. She’s still young and has a lot of energy, so a home with children or someone who’ll spend time playing with her would be great. She loves to chase string and play with cat toys, rubber balls and a cork on a string are her favorite toys right now. She likes to hide, and has a little pop-up cat cube that she loves to sit in. At least one scratching post is a must for Patience. She likes to scratch and knows to use a scratching post, but if one is not provided she will use the furniture. At bedtime, Patience likes to curl up at the foot of the bed (and sometimes chases your feet under the covers) but will usually move to her own bed in the middle of the night. She likes to be around people, but is also happy to spend time alone and is good at entertaining herself. I think Patience will make a really great long term family pet, please contact me if you can give this nice cat a permanent indoor home.

Patience is currently located in Dingman's Ferry, Pa but I am willing to drive a reasonable distance to NJ to help find her a good home. I can be reached by phone at 914-409-5676.

One Step Closer Animal Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit organization. We are a smaller rescue group that focuses on animals in desperate situations. We rescue dogs and cats from shelter where they have no room and euthanaize due to space or no food. All of our animals we rescue are fully vetted and spayed/neutered, unless they are too young to be altered. They are all great animals very deserving of great homes. Our rescue was created through the desire to save more lives that all our members have. We all have a passion to save animals as well as a commitment to ensure great futures for all our animals we rescue.

Our dogs/cats are not first come/first serve. We place our dogs/cats with the home that is the best fit for them. Not all animals are good in all homes, whether it’s their personalities, nature, or breed. We base our decision on what’s best for the dog/cat and the family. Thanks for understanding!

Supplies we need:
Crates/Kennels (wire or plastic)
Paper Towels
Dog Bowls
Dog/Puppy Food (dry and canned)
Flea Medications (spray or monthly)
Collars-all sizes
Dog Beds
Cleaning Supplies (bleach, pinesol, paper towels..etc.)
Plastic Gloves (medium and large)
Puppy Play Pens (aka X pens)
Dog Treats/Bones
Dog Toys/Chews
Garage Bags

Come Meet Our Pets...

There are 6-8 million cats and dogs entering shelters each year, half of which are EUTHENIZED (HSUS estimate)


ADOPTING—For pets near you, check out: or or
Don’t buy while others die. You’re new best friend is closer than you realize.

FOSTERING—You can take a dog or cat into your home for a period of time (1 week to a few months). You take care of them and give them the extra time they need until they find a home of their own. Many animals are very adoptable but are in high-kill shelters where they only have 3 days to find a home. Most just need more time to find their new family. This is a very rewarding experience to know YOU were the reason they are alive.

TRANSPORTING—These volunteer legs (usually 45 minutes to 1 hour each way) are the difference between life and death for most animals. Many shelters down south put to sleep 250 dogs per week. It's unbelievable, but it's true. Many rescues up north have the room and can rescue these dogs; its just a matter of getting people/families to volunteer to drive a leg. Each leg varies according to area, availability of transporters, and rescues. How it works is a coordinator sets up a run sheet that they send out with a route on it, people volunteer for the leg in their area that best fits into their schedule or their hearts. If you would like to volunteer for transport, please email us for more info: Transport is a crucial part of animal rescue and we can always use help. Thank you!

SUPPLY DRIVE—We collect old blankets, towels, sheets; small, medium & large dog collars, leashes; carriers/crates; dog food; dog beds; and monetary donations for vet bills (spay/neuter).

FUNDRAISING—We are always looking for people to help with events and even plan them.

Thousands of animals are saved each month by a network of rescuers who work together.
Please join us and help make a HUGE difference!
