Home I need:


This is Duggie, he arrived with 2 other cats some weeks ago now. The cats he came in with have since been rehomed and we are now ready to advertise Duggie boy. The cattery lifestyle has proven difficult for poor Duggie, he has found it hard to relax around us, hiding away for most of the day. He is now managing to give us a little Meow  when we go in to his pen and he is settled enough to enjoy a tickle under the chin and around his ears, but that’s the limit of the contact as he really is a scared boy.

At the Sanctuary we had a friendly, confident cat in our cattery so we decided to do a slow introduction with Duggie. Duggie instantly took notice and watched this other cat. After a few more carefully managed meetings Duggies whole behaviour changed, he looked more calm, he was more relaxed and appeared more confident generally. He began to come out of hiding to say hello, even coming over to us. This was so very emotional for us who are working with Duggie, it really gave us hope that we can find him the right home he will continue to thrive in. Because cats come and go all the time here we have continued to observe Duggie around suitable cats and each time Duggie would light up, he would enjoy their company and he became alot more confident with us too.

So we are looking for a special home that has an existing cat, the existing cat must be an easy going, friendly and confident cat around people and a cat that is relaxed and obviously friendly towards other cats. Having the right type of cat pal will help Duggie learn that he can trust people, and with the right approach from his new owners as well, we truly believe Duggie will, over time come into his own and make a lovely cat away from the stress of the cattery environment.

The home we are hoping to find should only have ONE cat of suitable character, an adult only home, no children or dogs (sorry) and should have safe access to a nice secure garden area away from busy road systems. He has been used to outside access in the past, and although this will be a long way off Duggie will no doubt like this again, and he can share adventures with his cat pal when the time is right.

Duggie’s rehoming needs are very specific so please only apply online if you have carefully read this write up and have 1 cat in your home that fits the description we are looking for. The cattery team will be very happy to discuss Duggie with anyone who we feel may have that forever home Duggie so desperately deserves.

Thank you
