Meow! My name is Dusty
I am already neutered, housetrained, and good with cats.
Beautiful green-eyed boy :)
I was nicknamed 'Dusty' by my rescuer because I was such a dirty, dusty cat outside! I was first noticed outside during the freezing winter - with Sylvester. We were both outside freezing during the terrible winter storms. Thankfully, our rescuer put food, water and a shelter out for us, so we were able to survive. Sylvester is braver and more outgoing than I am, so our rescuers saw Sylvester a lot more than me. I hid in the background, and as soon as someone approached, I hid or ran away.
Sylvester started getting sick, so he started hanging out more with our rescuers. He got so sick that he allowed them to bring him inside to help him. After Sylvester was brought to the vet for assistance, I started becoming braver. I had to - I was worried about my friend! I started jumping up on the window ledges of our rescuer's house - peering in through all the windows - looking to see where my friend / brother had gone. I hung around the house more and even stayed in the shelter, greatly appreciating the food my rescuers were giving me. As the weeks went by, my search for Sylvester increased. And as the weather got better and warmer, I started looking worse. I was losing weight and got dirtier and dirtier. My rescuer decided that it was time to bring me inside as well - before I got as sick as Sylvester.
I am inside now, being fostered with my beloved Sylvester. I am eating regularly, and a clean white cat once again! I am a handsome short-hair all white male cat. It is estimated that I am about 3 - 4 years old. I have been examined by a vet, neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed and de-fleaed. I am a little shy still around new people. I get along well with other cats, and would love to be adopted to my permanent home with my friend/brother Sylvester - after surviving the winter (and probably longer) outside together. It is guess that we were likely dumped / abandoned outside together previously.

Rescue Group Info...
HHCR is an animal rescue organization in Ottawa, Ontario. Our goal is to save injured or found cats and try to find them permanent suitable homes. Medical help is arranged for any cat suffering from injuries or illness. All cats are at temporary foster homes until adopted. We rely on volunteers and donations from kind individuals who care.
Potential adopters must fill out and application form, then Hungry and Homeless Cat Rescue completes a home visit to ensure the cat will be living in a suitable environment as well as reference checks. There is an adoption fee which goes towards the cat's medical care.
