Meow! My name is Patty
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Brown Tabby||Age:||Young|
I am already spayed, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and good with cats.
Patty and her sisters were rescued from a hoarder situation in St. Louis County. At first they were incredibly timid and scared. It took some time but they are now a year old and things have improved but they are going to need some time to get used to their forever homes. I have no doubt that they will become highly social, affectionate companions. Homes with young children or dogs may not be the best place for these girls.
Patty is a light brown tabby with a cream neck and tummy and lovely green eyes. She is quite diminutive, has dainty little paws which indicates she is always going to be a little girl. Patty was the most shy when she arrived and hid for over a month. She now greets me at the door and rubs my ankles and has even begun to ‘hug’ with both arms! Petting is now allowed. She’s very playful and loves to bat balls and stuffed toys around especially if they’re on a string and you dangle them in front of her. In fact, that’s how she decided to come out of hiding and have a good time. The favorite ‘toy’ now is a long fabric tube that makes noise and lights up as they run through it.
Patty might do best with an adopter that would give a home to Patty and Laverne together but I’m sure will warm up to kind attention...and good food...very quickly. Despite the stressful and scary situation of the transition from hoarder house to animal control to her foster home, Patty has never growled, hissed, bitten or scratched. approx DOB August 2011

Rescue Group Info...
Tenth Life is an animal welfare organization that provides another chance at life to injured and abused stray cats. Our focus is on felines with extreme medical needs or ongoing conditions that make it difficult for typical shelters to afford their care.
Stage one of our mission is getting needy cats off the streets of St. Louis and into caring Foster Homes, where they await their forever homes. Stage two´s goal is to open a shelter building that will house special-needs kitties in a cage-free, no-kill setting until they can be carefully placed in their forever homes.
