Warning: Patches is shy so when she meets new people she'll hide. Once she is used to a person and knows she's not going to be thrown out again she'll be all over her new owner. However this is often the way with cats. They are very sensitive and it takes time to readjust to new environments. But this is an AMAZING KITTY! Come see for yourself.
Hi, my name is Patches but mostly I'm called Baby Girl.I'm 6 months old, quite young, but my life so far has been a big adventure. I found my way to my foster's house a couple days before Hurricane Matthew hit.
I didn't know what a hurricane was so I refused to be taken inside. Boy was that a mistake! After the weather settled down I was more than willing to be taken inside. Unfortunately, 3 of the resident cats didn't think much of me. There was A LOT of hissing! I stayed in a cage for a while just so I would be safe. That meant that I didn't get to learn about all the things that go on in the house and I got scared a lot.
Then, something wonderful happened! I met another kitty who lives here that the others don't like, either. Now I have a friend, I have more room to explore and play and I've learned that I really like attention from my foster. While I love it here I know I can't stay. I need a forever home where I can roam freely (not just in one room), learn about more things and either have a person all my own or who I can share with NEW friends.
If you have any questions or would like to meet me, please call my foster, Kara, at 260-273-4058 (cell).
Emotional Support Animals (ESA)
Emotional Support Animals are not required to undergo specialized training. They can be dogs, cats, exotics, birds. Their primary role is to provide their owners with emotional comfort. Emotional support animals can benefit a disabled individual psychologically. The basic gift of companionship and unconditional affection can be the therapy needed to counter a condition like debilitating depression or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
ESAs are protected under the Fair Housing Amendments Act (FHAA) and the Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA). People meeting the proper criteria are entitled to an ESA to assist them with life. The FHAA protects individuals by allowing ESAs to live with them regardless of breed (even with no pet policies). The ACAA protects individuals by allowing ESAs to fly with them in the cabin of an airplane without having to pay additional fees. ESAs are not required to be professionally trained. An owner can train the pet. However a letter of need written by a mental health counselor will be required.
MEOW, MEOW - COME AND GET ME PLEASE!
