The eighth animal to be profiled in the 2017 edition of the 12 Strays of Christmas is Peaches, a kind two-year-old short haired black cat. She came in with a wound on her elbow that is healing nicely. Peaches loves going outside during the day but prefers a warm bed and cuddling at nighttime.
She previously lived with children and her brother, Mr. Rogers, who is also up for adoption.
Adoption Tip #8: There are a many benefits to adopting a second cat. Two cats can provide exercise, comfort, playtime and even grooming. Cats housed together have more opportunity to be cats, so they are less bored and will not engage in other less problematic behaviour. It usually works best to introduce cats to each other that are around the same age and have the same energy levels. Know your cats — an active cat may not be a good match for one who is laid back.
