Colour:              DSH Tortoiseshell

Born Approx:   May 1, 2023

Gender:            Spayed Female, microchipped


A couple living in a town near Lethbridge grew concerned when they observed a young homeless mother-cat and her three kittens. The feline family was new to the neighbourhood and had taken refuge under a neighbour's front step at the beginning of August, 2023. The little mom, now named Emori, had lost part of her rear right leg due to a catastrophic injury, making providing for her youngsters impossible, and avoiding predators and aggressive street cats problematic. The neighbours started feeding the little family and contacted rescue-groups to no avail. But regardless of capacity issues, PAW decided to make a special effort to trap the injured female and her offspring. With the indispensable help of the local couple, the Society was able to capture the kittens and eventually, their mother. Emori and her kittens had become very familiar with feeding time and their social progress can be attributed to the team effort of the two neighbours, talking to their little visitors and slowly gaining their trust. The orange boy – now named Julien – entered the trap first, true to the couple’s description of him as "super curious". His sisters, Klarra (since adopted) and Evelyn, followed a day later. All are in a foster-home now.


Pretty Evelyn was always a little shyer than her siblings; however, she is a tortoiseshell after all and they are known for their intelligence. With intelligence, comes caution and evaluation. After the two little girls' rescue, they were handled as much as possible. It paid off quickly. If Evelyn was on a cat tree, or a raised surface, she was okay with being picked up for a snuggle in your arms. Now, her foster mom can pick her up from above. But your approach must be slow and respectful. Her foster mom speaks to her in a very soft voice - almost a whisper. Evelyn likes that. She will come onto foster mom's lap (when it's free of cats) and enjoy a good petting and a rest. She enjoys being groomed (a great way to create a bond). Your reward will be her soft, sweet purrs. It truly is a gratifying experience to socialize little cats who've never had a home. Time and patience are the tools to help her become accustomed to a new situation.

Evelyn is active! Every morning she, her brother and younger siblings (before they were adopted) play Indy500. She also enjoys playing with a string toy (with a person on the other end) and stick-handling balls and springs. Her favourite toy was a decapitated furry mouse without the plastic inner body - only the outer covering remains - it's so funny! But the darned little thing went missing and she's never found a replacement - even when foster mom took apart another little furry mouse, it was just never the same. Evelyn is a good eater and eagerly awaits her breakfast and dinner. Tortoiseshell cats bond deeply with their person but they generally like everyone in their family. Naturally, she has bonded with her foster family but the goal is for her to have very own person - that's what she most deserves. She and her brother, Julien, get along very well together and would make an ideal pairing. She also lives with two small dogs (who do not chase) and does fine with them.

All young cats, but especially shyer ones, need your time: playing, holding, brushing, nail trimming, picking up, handling, supervising and making your home safe for them. If they stop receiving attention, they'll stop wanting it.
