Continuing on the spotlight feature of our sanctuary cats, we’d like to introduce you to our next ball of love. Meet Doodle!
Doodle is our 4th of July rescue kitten, hence the name! Found in the streets behind organization owner Judith’s home, Doodle was only 8 weeks old when he was rescued.
As a bouncy and rambunctious little guy, he had no problem speaking his mind through nibbles when he didn’t like something. Just like Diva, he was almost adopted out of our adoption center, but made it clear he had already found a home in the sanctuary.
The only problem was Doodle never grew out of that rambunctious little kitten. He longed for adventures outside the walls of his home, and one day succeeded by darting through the screen door. Judith feared for Doodle’s safety and knew it wouldn’t be long before he was picked up by animal services.
Sure enough he was found 14 days later in a nearby shelter. The sad truth is animal shelters have a horrible overpopulation problem, meaning a good majority don’t make it due to spacial issues. Doodle was just days away from being euthanized. Luckily, Judith got there just in time and was able to re-adopt Doodle!
Today Doodle couldn’t be happier! He’s calmed down from his old hyperactive ways, but still tries to dart out the door every so often. Judith realizes how lucky it was that she found Doodle in that shelter, and works hard to be sure Doodle gets the happy life he deserves.
But we can’t do it alone! Our cat sanctuary is always in need of more food, beds and toys to keep Doodle and the many other sanctuary cats happy and healthy. If you’d like to help us support our sanctuary cats please visit our donate page located on the above tabs! Any help will go a long way 🙂
