Cats are somewhat like liquid, always getting themselves into the most precarious places. We see them hiding in vases, under beds and chairs close to the ground, and of course boxes! One of these precarious places happens to be open walls in attics. That is where Wally’s story, along with his siblings, begins.
Wally and the Wall
Wally’s mama was living in a homeowner’s attic when she gave birth to four kittens. Wally decided to be curious, as all kitties are, and explore the attic. Going near the wall, Wally saw an opening. Suddenly, he found himself trapped after falling into a hole. Later, he earned the name Wally for his little wall fiasco.
As you can see, the wall was adjacent to the outside and made for some complex maneuvering. After rescuers cut the wall open to rescue him, and they took him to the Kitty Bungalow-Charm School for Wayward Cats. You may remember the Kitty Bungalow from a previous article featuring the charm school’s new spring “student” kittens.
As a quick recap, the charm school is based in Los Angeles, California, and is a non-profit 501(c)3. They provide the community with free TNR and use fear-free socialization to make cats on the streets ready for new homes.
Wally’s Mama and Siblings Were Next
Once Wally was rescued, it was time to find mama and the other kittens. It took a few weeks, but they were located in the homeowner’s attic. Fortunately, Wally’s siblings were not little explorers getting into trouble like Wally.
As it turned out, the Mama cat was very feral. So in her best interest, once the kittens were weaned, she was TNVR’d (trapped, fixed, vaccinated and returned to a local safeplace). The other three siblings enrolled at the charm school to become their best selves.
Kitty Bungalow decided to keep the theme of the names starting with “Wall” and named the three Wallis, Walton, and Wallflower. Wally received the news at his furever home since he became adopted before his siblings were found. Wally’s personal Facebook page said, “he sends his love.”
Both Wallis and Wallflower have beautiful tortie markings, and Walton is a fluffy little black cat. After their schooling, the siblings would be ready for adoption on the Kitty Bungalow’s website. All four kittens’ stories were posted to the charm school’s Facebook page and fans are pretty happy with the outcome.
“Wildly Wonderful” said one Facebook user. Another Facebook user noted “Poor Wally! Big thanks to the homeowner and KB for getting him out of there and somewhere safe!”
