Facts about Patty

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
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 five years 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 grey 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. Her favorite ‘toy’ now is a long fabric tube that makes noise and lights up as they run through it. Patty has the run of the house but still spends most of the day upstairs. She hasn’t warmed up to the other cats as much as Laverne and Maxine and is very attached to Laverne. They do a lot of grooming and hugging. She was the first to demand belly rubs despite being so scared! Now her favorite thing is to play with the running water in the sink! She is the one to demand attention and cheek to cheek rubs with me.

Patty might do best with an adopter that would give a home to Patty and Laverne together but I’m sure she 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.

About Tenth Life Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

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.
