Facts about Captain

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Captain was severely injured by a leg hold trap in early June of 2016. Due to the serious injure, Captain's leg had to be amputated. Due to his feral nature, he was originally destined for a sanctuary. During his recovery, his foster family made attempts to help him get used to people, so that he could be easier cared for at the sanctuary. It was at this time, that they saw some progress in his behavior and decided to see if they could tame him. It took a lot of time and patience, but the decision paid off.
Captain has become a beloved member of his foster family.  He has developed quite a personality. He loves to be held and cuddled. His purr will let you know that he’s happy.  He loves to play with yarn toys, especially if you wiggle them on the floor like a snake! He also loves to play with the kittens in his foster home and with smaller cats. He will play with them until he’s tired and then settle on a chair for a nap. He will tolerate the smaller dogs in his foster home, as long as they keep their distance, but he is not at all comfortable around larger cats and dogs.  He can go up and down the stairs and will jump onto his foster mom’s office chair. Sometimes he lets her sit there too! 

Captain will do best in a home without dogs, large cats or very young children. That said, he would benefit greatly from a cat friend around his own size or smaller.  He likes his independence, but does get lonely.  He does not like to be carried, but will allow you to pick him up and hold him on your lap for pets and massages. He prefers his side with the missing leg to be closest to your body as it seems to comfort him and make him feel more secure.  Captain has made tremendous progress in his foster home and is looking for a loving forever family that will help him continue to blossom.

About Camp Companion

About Our Rescue Group...

Camp Companion is a 501c3 organization established in 2003.

Based in Rochester MN, the organization is totally driven by volunteers.

Camp Companion is dedicated to providing low-cost spay and neuter services for feral, farm and stray companion animals. The organization is funded solely by donations, fundraisers, grants, and adoption fees. All funds we receive are used for veterinary expenses and the cost of care incurred for the animals waiting for their forever homes.

Through our spay / neuter efforts, we encounter kittens and stray domestic cats that need rescue services and a forever home. We have no shelter, but rely on foster homes to care for these rescued pets. Every animal we offer for adoption is spayed or neutered.
