My story

One SMART Kitty!

Floyd was born about November 9, 2010 and weighs about 15 lbs.  This big kitty is a very smart boy and appeared here winter of 2017.  It seems he found the cat door in the front of the garage, wandered around in the garage long enough to find the cat door into the cellar where there is an endless supply of kitty food, fresh water and a rather consistent temperature of about 60 degrees.  So, winter of 2017 he terrorized the staff and the dogs that visit the cellar now and then to try to find 'treats' that the other rather feral cats, who live inside (cellar)/outside leave for them.  He was fine with the other cats, but the dogs weren't allowed to come up the steps after they got down!   No humans were allowed to touch him and if you reached for something in the shelves where he was lurking you'd get a good swat on your hand that goes 'THUD'!   Then summer came and he was gone.  The cellar was much more accessible to all of us, but we must admit we missed him a bit and hoped he was ok.  Then came winter of 2018 and the snow and cold hit early - Floyd was back!   He looked a little rough, but it didn't take long for him to regain his shiny fur and eyes.  And much to our surprise he was just a teensy bit friendlier and seemed to be taunting 'Cat Man Drew' by rubbing on his legs, yet swatting his hand if it came close. is the time to neuter this boy!   'Cat Man Drew' grabbed him with some big gloves and into a crate he went!!!    Then off to see Dr. Rasey to get the deed done!  He recovered a few days in a crate and then was cautiously set free in the cellar looking rather indignant!  Perhaps he's mellowed a bit and we don't know if he'll be leaving again this summer, but if he does he may find his summer activities dampened just a bit if you know what I mean.    : )   We understand it is unlikely anyone will want to adopt Floyd, but we thought it was fun to tell his story and hope you enjoyed reading about him.  We've deemed Floyd a sanctuary pet and he is considered 'un-adoptable'.
Joyful Rescues remains committed to our Sanctuary Dogs and Cats. They will stay with us for their natural lives and we will care for and love them. We will be their forever family.
We wish we could do it alone but we need your help. We are looking for people who can help us with Floyds care. Please click the link below and donate. Floyd thanks you. ❤️
