Volunteer notes:;

; Chiclet is a lovely gentle kitty who enjoys attention and affection. She's a self assured kitty with quiet, calm energy. She'll make a sweet companion for anyone who likes a cat that's not pushy or demanding. She's strikingly beautiful with her silver and white meticulously groomed coat. She's a petite kitty with gorgeous Amber eyes. She's not fond of other cats, growls if they approach, but, if they also have calm, cool energy she'll let them hang next to her on the sofa or porch. She's a very sweet, nice, well mannered cat. A winner!;

; Chiclet, her two siblings and her mother had lived with an elderly man that did not have much company so the cats were only used to him initially. The mom was a pregnant semi-feral girl that he had taken in and raised the three babies in his home. After he passed away a family member boarded the cats for several months because they were too shy and thrown off to suddenly be out in the word to be placed up for adoption through a loud shelter, and she did not want them to be put to sleep so we took in all four. It took some time for the three siblings to settle in and feel safe enough to let us pet them, but they have all come around at their own pace. Chiclet can still get spooked with fast movements by people she doesn't know well at times, but otherwise is very gentle, loving and social as you can see in the staff notes in her bio. She is a sweet and beautiful girl that comes right up to us for love now and she would do wonderfully in a quiet and loving home like the one she was accustomed to with the man that had raised her. ; It would be ideal for those interested in Chiclet to come and meet her here at the sanctuary in Willits as we would want for you to see how lovely she is after settling in. We can imagine that at first she will be shy when going home and adjusting, but with some time and love she should blossom back into being her sweet self.

About Milo Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

THE MILO FOUNDATION was named after an Australian Shepherd. Milo was five weeks old when Lynne Tingle discovered that her puppy was both deaf and blind. Despite concerns from friends and family, Lynne was determined to give Milo a good life.

It was a learning process for both Milo and Lynne, his "seeing eye person". Lynne developed a series of taps to communicate with Milo. A tap on the left or right flank would instruct Milo which direction to go. And a tap on the rear meant 'stop'. In the park, Milo's feet read the ground like Braille, where he bounded around in circles with his nose in the air, barking with joy.

Given a chance to live, Milo became a happy, beloved dog. The experience with Milo led Lynne to learn about other animals who needed a chance - abandoned and stray dogs and cats who fill city shelters - which led to the founding of the nonprofit no-kill sanctuary: The Milo Foundation.

After a full and happy life, Milo passed away in August of 1998. He was the perfect spirit and namesake for a sanctuary dedicated to saving the lives of creatures who deserved, like Milo, a chance at a good life.

Today, The Milo Foundation is an established 501(c)(3) nonprofit, no-kill organization providing an alternative for homeless pets throughout Northern California, through education, adoption services, and providing sanctuary for animals until permanent homes can be found. Founded in August of 1994, The Milo Foundation is located on two hundred and eighty-three acres in Mendocino County - offering lots of room for the animals to run and play. Milo houses cats, dogs, puppies and kittens - occasionally farm animals and other domestic creatures find their way to the sanctuary.
