P.E.T. P.A.L.S. volunteers will endeavor to provide opportunities for animal and human interaction in
the Cedar Valley and surrounding communities by visiting with approved pets in local nursing homes, hospitals,
group homes, schools, and other facilities.
Volunteers provide animal assisted therapy/activities in area care centers and residential facilities, respite programs, etc.
One of our members is looking for homes for one cat and two kittens. She has been feeding them all summer and borrowed a trap last week to catch them. The two kittens (approx 3-4 months are Belle who is a dilute calico and Smokey Jo who is charcoal. Juliet (the mom) is all black with a white spot on her chest.
Smokey Jo is charcoal with a white spot on her chest and on her tummy. She is tame, but very skittish yet. When she is held, she purrs, kneads her paws and is very sweet. She hides right now, but she is well on her way to being someone's pet.
Belle is a dilute calico which is hard to see in the picture because she is so dilute, but she is a gray and white tiger with splotches of orange on her. She isn't tamed yet, but she is next.
Juliet, as far as is known, has been feral all her life. Don't know if she could be tamed or not, but she is beautiful. It would be best if she were spayed and went to a farm where she would be cared for, but would probably need to remain an outside cat. She is a good hunter and, aside from the food given to her before she was trapped, she would catch birds for herself and her babies.
The kitten, Belle, may also need to remain an outside cat as it's been next to impossible to get hold of her to try taming her. Plans are to take the kitten, Smokey Jo, to the vet for adoption. In the mean time, if anyone is interested or knows of anyone who might be interested, please contact Diane Hensley at 236-3491 or at this e-mail address:firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks
