Can Widget Come Home?

Hi, Percy here, with an update on the lovely Widget we told you about a couple of months ago.

In January we posted about a cat named Widget who needs a home. You can read her story in the original post.

A quick overview is that she was dumped when she was still a kitten and trying to survive in a feral colony, but she wasn't happy outdoors and wasn't thriving. She needed to be inside before the worst of winter hit. And then her rescuer Tobin couldn't bear to leave her outside so he brought her from the feral colony into his garage with 4 other foster cats. She still needs a home.

Widget is a big, beautiful Maine Coon. Look at the long, fluffy tail on her.

Here she is in Tobin's own words -

Widget is now around a year old. I got her out of the feral colony before bad weather hit. She’s one of those in-betweeners; not feral, not truly domesticated.

She LOVES any & all cats, she’s living happily with all her fellow fosters. She is very good with familiar humans. With unfamiliar humans she is fearful at first. But warms up to be the most dedicated companion once she knows its OK to trust.

Widget is spayed, vaccinated, tested, Frontlined & wormed. She's totally 100% healthy. She’s impeccable about the litter box. And she’s BIG! She’s such a big beautiful sweetheart. She’s come a looooooong way from the scraggly abandoned kitten she was last spring.

Please help spread the news about Widget so she can get a home of her own. She is in the Canton, Ohio area.

Reminder: Do not post Widget or any animals in need of a home on Craig's List or any similar website! It is not safe for the animals! But please pass along a link to this blog post. Thank you.

  7. She is beautiful! I will share this.

  8. What a lovely girl. We'll tweet about her.

  9. Cloon's Human: I have followed her story since you had her on your blog on the original post. It is again one of those stories that has tugged so much at my heartstrings. I always pray for her to find a safe, loving forever home. If I lived in the USA, I would adopt her (but I live in Canada and can only have 2 cats where I live), so it breaks my heart.

  10. Me and Charlie hope and pray that sweet and wonderful Widget find a good and loving home! Poor sweetie! :-(

    Take care

  11. And thank you everyone for sharing her story & for your support! :)

  12. It's sad when furries don't have homes... I will tell mommy to share her story. :)

    Woofs & hugs,


  13. Widget is beautiful. We all hope she finds her forever home very soon.

  16. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I hope this kitty's humans do whatever it takes to help this poor animal lose some weight.

  17. Widget is beautiful, we hope she finds a loving furrever home soon. Hugs and nose kisses

  18. Sending to my friend with family in Ohio.

  19. Thank you everyone for your good thoughts. But no one has stepped up for Widget. She bonds closer to us each day, but she is so emotionally fragile, she may never be a part of the pride. But she will always have a home here with us.


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
