Rehoming – Profile

History:

Patch came into us as her owner could no longer give her the care she needed.

 
Behaviour observations on site:
 

Patch really struggled when she first came into the cattery environment. She appeared to be very conflicted in what she wanted. We believe she wanted to be friends but didn’t know how to behave and her default was to swipe out.

Now Patch is much more settled and starting to enjoy spending time with a few members of staff who have been working closely with her. She will follow them around when out on the cattery floor, is very responsive when called and will jump on their lap as soon as they sit down. She’s even started rubbing against their arms and will happily accept a couple of strokes every now and then. She is also very content sat next to them watching the world go by.

Things will need to be taken at a pace Patch feels comfortable with. We believe in the right home and with time and space to settle she will thrive. 

Patch can still be reactive around hands so her new owners need to understand she will need a complete hands off approach to start with. Patch gets easily overstimulated and can be unsure how to act so new things will need to be introduced gradually.

Patch needs to be an only pet in an experienced adult only home. In Patch’s previous home she was confined in one room so would initially benefit from the same set up before exploring the rest of the property to reduce the likelihood of her feeling overwhelmed.

We reserve the right to remove a reserve at any stage of the adoption process if we believe it is in the best interest of the cat.
