Rescue Story

Pussy Willow came into GEARS’ care when we acquired CAWS, and was originally an owner surrender through them. After time spent in a loving foster home, she is now ready to find her furever home!

My Bio

A big hello to everyone! My name is Pussy Willow, but my foster mom calls me “pitou” (French slang for “li’l one”). She tells me it’s a term of endearment so I’m trying very hard to live up to that.

Some rough patches early on in my life have left me less trusting of people. Because of that, I tend to run away at the sound of any loud voice. That sometimes makes it harder to learn. But I am starting to trust more. I’m still afraid of enclosed spaces and don’t really do well if left alone all day. I’m not keen on being picked up, but do crave the attention, so I’ll sometimes stay cradled in my human’s arms for a bit. My record is now a full 8 seconds! Maybe someday I’ll even be okay with having my belly touched, too!

Although most of the time I’m okay with just hanging out in my bed in front of the patio doors and watching the world go by, what I enjoy even more is getting all gussied up in my harness and leash and taking my human outside for a walk and a bit of exercise. And I’m always ready to play. My very favourite game is “ambush!” where I hide under a big pile of paper. It’s so much fun and I’ve got a real talent for it! Best of all is the chance to interact with my human🥰.

Once upon a long time ago, when I was just a kitten, I had a family and a real home. I’d be so glad to have that again, to belong to a human I can call my own. Someone who is at home much of the time. Who has the time to play with me. Who understands that I want to make them happy and am trying very hard to become the great pet that I know I can be. With just a little time, a little space… will you love me forever?

Love, PW 💓
