Katniss, a Bengal cat, arrived at The Wildcat Sanctuary in July of 2021.

She’d been found as a stray in Hawaii. Since Bengals are illegal to own in Hawaii, the rescue group had to find a permanent home on the mainland to save her from being euthanized.

Life at the Sanctuary

Katniss is such a special girl.  She’s socialized to humans and loves attention, but she’s aggressive toward other cats. So she can’t live with other cats.

We were told she’s also FIV positive, has scarring on both eyes and has some digestion issues.  Katniss has very little appetite and needs an appetite stimulant. She also vomits and can be inconsistent with the litter box.

Despite these issues, Katniss is a very happy girl and deserved a second chance here at the Sanctuary.

We’re thankful for all who were involved, helping her make the long journey from Hawaii. She went through 4 cities, along with her human companion, before making the 1.5 hour drive to the Sanctuary here in Minnesota.

She received her intake exam, microchip, and vaccinations, along with blood work being run. Since she arrived, her appetite has improved. But we’re continuing to monitor her digestive issues.

How You Can Help

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 Katniss’ sponsor parent? It’s only $150/year or $12.50/month.

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!
