   Leave a treat for Growler


Quick Bio:
-part feral-cat rescue


Sitting in a lap and being groomed and pet. Though a growly feisty cat, at heart she is a mama's kitten

The vet, dogs, anyone who doesn't recognize her status as queen of the world

Favorite Toy:
Hm, she likes the Swamy alright, but she's probably a little more of a wrestler than a toy cat

Favorite Nap Spot:
definitely the laundry sorter or in my lap

Favorite Food:
Natural Balance wet food

She is a special kitten and I think all her skills are special, but she can't fly or anything


Arrival Story:
Growler and her siblings washed up onto my terrace during a bad thunderstorm. While Chili was the very first intrepid explorer to come meow at my door and then run away, Growler was the holdout--the last kitten to be caught, the fighter. When Chili returned, she brought a sibling. Then they brought mom. After I caught the first two kittens, mom returned...with three more kittens! They had been living, as far as I could see, under part of the terrace, right near a downspout. As the gutter filled with water, it drained via the downspout into their makeshift den. The kittens began showing up one by one and I was able to trap them all but for the mother cat.

Growler lost her battle with feline leukemia on 10 January, 2005. She developed a condition in her spine that caused her to be in a lot of pain, constantly and the medication wasn't enough to help. We made the sad decision to help her cross the bridge. We will miss her, I will miss her, my little Growlina, my special little Growler. **These kittens tested and retested positive for Feline Leukemia Virus.** They need homes where their special needs will be understood, where they will be kept strictly indoors, and where they can be a part of a family. Consider adopting a special needs pet today!
