  • Bella

    Bella needs some TLC 💜 This beautiful little puss had been a pet but arrived with us absolutely terrified and shaking with fear and we have no idea what her previous life was like for her to have caused this. We put her in a large dog crate to begin with to help her feel secure and to stop her hiding - her fostermum has worked wonders with her and she needs an experienced, understanding owner to continue her rehab. "After a few days I started wrapping her up in a blanket to give her some forced love and to show I am nothing bad. You could see she enjoyed the cuddles and her internal struggle was strong! When I was home I started leaving the crate open so she had the chance to explore on her own terms. When she was sure I wasn't paying attention she would race out of the cage and find a hiding space. I have lost her more than once - the places she has found and how small she can make herself! When I started leaving her out overnight she did everything she could to get under my sofa. I would get her out from there in the morning and she would run back to safety in the crate. We kept the crate for a few weeks until she was more out than in and it was no longer her main safe place, I don’t see how her transformation could have worked without that crate. When she is out in the open she still runs for cover but she hides more in plain sight like under the table or her other safe place: inside a shelf unit where you can still see her. She is a very playful 16 month old cat, slowly growing her confidence, curious and causing all kinds of trouble letting her inner kitten come out. Sitting in the window and watching people and birds is a big hobby. Playtime will help her forget her fears. When you lay down on the sofa or bed she feels safe to approach you for cuddles and will lie on or beside you. Last few weeks she has started to sleep with me in bed. Or why sleep some nights when you can just collect your toys, bring them into bed and play on top of you!? Every morning she comes straight up demanding cuddles. If you are not giving her what she wants she will tell you so by putting her paw on you :) The past few weeks she has also found her voice and will demand her food. She is very food motivated, the one time she is ready to be brave and sacrifice her life is when there is potential food to gain. She will try and steal your food on the plate, pans from cooking in the kitchen, getting into the food waste (keep it locked!). So that's the way forward with positive reinforcement it seems. She will need a special home where it is expected she will revert to her old self and start over the journey but hopefully a quicker journey this time. Quiet, not a busy environment, no children or other pets. A home with lots of love, patience, safe spaces, and occasional tough love - she can't be allowed to hide for too long. She did have a touch of conjunctivitis caused by stress and they may recur but it didn't need any vet treatment." Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.

  • Whiskers

    ,
    Whiskers needs some TLC 💜 Sweet little Whiskers was found living under a trailer on cold concrete. She'd been there for months, had no shelter and no one was feeding her :( She was very under weight and probably would not have survived another winter. She has definitely been a well loved family member at some point in her life as she’s very affectionate and loves to be fussed while relaxing on someone’s lap, purring softly and oh so gratefully. Unfortunately she's not chipped and, despite posting her on social media, knocking on doors etc, no owners have come forward and local people suspect she was another puss just left behind. She has an amazing appetite unsurprisingly and has put on some weight but seems to have lost interest in grooming herself so a daily brush from her new hoomans would go down a treat. This lovely lady would like a quieter home with no children or other pets, a warm lap and lots of fuss plus a garden away from busy roads for when she's ready to brave outdoors again. Our vets guesstimate her at 6yrs and she's presumed spayed as she's showing no signs of recent kittens or coming into season. She's chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.
