The ninth animal to be profiled in the 2017 edition of the 12 Strays of Christmas is Anastasia, a polite two-year-old tortoiseshell cat.

She has a sweet demeanour and a gentle soul. Anastasia seems to be spooked easily so she would be best with another respectful, calm cat in a quiet household.

Adoption tip #9: Did you know that indoor cats have double the life expectancy? Cats naturally want to be outdoors where they can experience the stimulation of fresh air and the sights, sounds and movement of the natural world. However, there are many outdoor hazards. A catio, which is an outdoor cat enclosure or “cat patio,” attached to a patio or a window, can solve the indoor/outdoor dilemma to keep a cat safe, healthy and happy. Catios also provide additional territory and stimulation to help reduce indoor multiple cat issues.

The 12 Strays of Christmas is a joint project between The Guardian and the P.E.I. Humane Society. For more information, contact the P.E.I. Humane Society at www.peihumanesociety.com or 902-892-1190.
