Momma Pearl Grey and her six “Greybies” – also known as the Grey family – were rescued from Devore Shelter at the tail end of a very busy Kitten Season in August of 2018. Three girls – Violet, Lilac and Lavender. Three boys – Slate, Smoke and Storm. With a family so large, it was a challenge to the Kitty Devore Rescue team to coordinate a rescue plan for the family. Every foster home was so full and no one had space. Their time was running out. We almost lost them all. But with just hours to spare, we managed to figure out a plan to get them all safely out of the shelter and into our care.
Smoke is the most dominant and independent of all Momma Pearl’s Greybies. He is not the type to be chosen. He is the type of kitty who will choose who his people are. If he doesn’t like you, you’re out of luck. But if he does, consider yourself honored! Smoke truly loved his first foster mom who temporarily cared for the Grey family right after their rescue. He loved draping himself across her shoulder and felt it imperative that he “assist” her with her work. The Grey family’s long term foster family is far more busy and bustling and he thrives on the energy. He’s fearless and takes the lead in all situations. He can be in your face and demanding when he wants something – and attention is definitely something he wants a lot of!
If you think you’ve got the right stuff to meet Smoke’s high expectations, definitely fill out an application for him and see if he chooses you!
