Homeless is bad enough but homeless and sick is a lot worse. Momma cat Sky, a mackerel tabby, and her babies Haze, Windy, Stormy and Sunny were dumped outside our rescue. Every kitten was sick and needed medical attention in order to live. Luckily AALOC was able to get them the treatment they needed and all of them are have recovered. They are now ready for new homes!
Mackerel tabbies make great pets. Known as happy-go-lucky cats, they are intelligent and playful as well as clever and entertaining. Famous mackerel tabbies include Morris; The Cheshire Cat; Garfield and Heathcliff; and Jenny-Any-Dots of the musical Cats who sleeps all day because she's been very busy all night being kind and affectionate to others.
Sky’s kittens are adorable – but because they are so small they are easily hurt. So for this reason we are recommending they be adopted into adult only families or a family with children 12 years or older.
As with most kittens, early human interaction is important to their social development. Play at this stage of a cat’s life is also vital because it increases their physical coordination, confidence and curiosity, and teaches limits while they explore leadership ranking (who’s in charge) and how to be a cat. Sky’s kittens will also need some special attention and care to make sure they grow into a strong felines. Making sure they eat the right food formulated for kitten growth and receives the necessary vaccinations and spaying/neutering during their first year is also important.
Please submit an application to adopt Haze. Once your application is reviewed and approved we will contact you to make an appointment to visit us at AALOC to get to know Haze a bit during visiting hours (10am to 3pm daily).
