Indie is a female, spotted Bengal cat who came to live at The Wildcat Sanctuary in 2006. She was four years old at the time.
In the rescue world, we hear this story all too often. Indie had been surrendered to a local humane society when her owners moved. Had she been a regular domestic cat, maybe there might have been a slight chance of placing her through adoption. But, she was very shy and part wild so the humane society didn’t feel she had much of a chance of being adopted out. Luckily, they contacted us.
Life at the Sanctuary
Indie’s a wonderful girl who gets along fine with all the other Bengals at the sanctuary. She takes some time to warm up to new caretakers, but after warming up she will allow people to pet her and may even hang around for attention.
She lives in a bungalow with an outdoor and indoor area to stay comfortable in any weather. The outdoor area includes perches, a hammock, dens, an in-ground pool, trees to climb and rocks to sun on.
We’re so happy that, at the time, we had space to accept her into our family and give her a home she truly deserves.
How You Can Help
Caring for a wild cat for life – even a small hybrid like Indie – can be quite expensive. Hybrids usually come to us with special needs, genetic and/or medical issues due to their breeding.
Our sponsorship program helps support the cats’ care costs and allows you to form a special bond with them. Would you consider becoming Indie’s sponsor parent?
Or even a one time donation toward her care would be so appreciated. It’s easy to do using the buttons at the top of this page.
Thank you for caring about the little wild ones, too!
