These beautiful boys came from a home overrun with cats. The owner acquired them from someone else, we believe they are father and son. They are not well socialised and need a home where they can be introduced to the outdoors where they can come and go as they please. We believe they were indoor cats in the second home but not sure about the first home.
Bagheera is the one with a slight tear on his right ear. They have tested negative for FIV/FeLV, vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. They spent two months in a foster home where they did come out of their shells somewhat but the fosterers needed them moving so they went into the cattery.
A report from their fosterers:
Joe – spent the first two weeks at the back of the conservatory curling up in a ball and hissing/shaking with fear if we even looked at him. Wouldn’t eat anything all day and only came out at night to eat and use the litter tray. However, recently he has started to turn a corner, now freely moving around conservatory, eating, playing with Bagheera and using the tray during the day. We can even coax him out to eat a few treats but is still very wary; when we feed him, he now pops his head out while we fill his bowl but hisses at the same time!
Bagheera – slightly less fearful, will allow us to stroke him if we coax him out with treats. Wasn’t as scared initially and would happily eat and use the tray from the beginning. He is also now venturing into the living room while the door is open, again will find a hiding place but they are both in the same room as us.
Both get on well with each other, happily sleep together and play together.
Our experience with cats like these is that it just takes time, in the right environment they will be different and better cats and will relax and enjoy life. They are looking for a child and pet free home.
