Dale, the gentle giant of Maggie’s House

By Henrietta Hall

On a dark and stormy night, clichéd but true, a little kitten and his brother fell out of a car engine when the car stopped. Miraculously, even though they were malnourished and in extremely bad shape, they both survived and have thrived at Maggie’s House, Big Canoe’s shelter for lost and abandoned cats and kittens.

Dale, the larger of the two kittens, and his brother Roo, are about 1 ½ years old. Dale has beautiful markings like a Bengal tiger with black swirls on dark gray but best of all is his great personality. He is very sweet and affectionate. He always greets me at the shelter and wants to be loved on. He could easily intimidate the other cats in the shelter but chooses not to do so, ruling by gentle persuasion instead.

Dale weighs around 12 pounds, an average size for an adult male and is very healthy with a lovely shiny coat. He loves to play with toys and is very good with the younger cats. The kittens seem especially drawn to him, frequently choosing to cuddle and sleep alongside him.

Dale would make a wonderful pet, a gentle and loving soul who would appreciate the same in its human.
