Domestic Short Hair
Arrived 2nd June, 2018
Fostered in Macclesfield
UPDATE Rachel can be rehomed with a calm cat friendly dog as we introduced her to one of our foster dogs and she was absolutly fine!
“Night is a black cat with Moonscape amber eyes, walking gently across the Blue silhouette sky”.
Black is beautiful and that is definitely to be said for Rachel. She has a typical sad story of being abandoned, along with a rabbit, no-one to feed them or care for them for at least a week. She has been spayed, vaccinated and micro chipped. She will need a pet and child free home and due to her having a form of fear reactivity she needs an experienced cat owner who will give her the space and time she needs to come around.
Foster update: Sassy Rachel loves to join you in anything you are involved in, from sorting out cupboards to making the bed. She has rapidly learnt the feeding routine and what’s her best chance at getting out of the cat room at feeding times. She’s also learnt that at breakfast and tea, she gets a hug and waits for it, she loves her head being rubbed and scratched at this time, but only her head. She is a smart cat; a thinking cat, even if she overdoes the thinking.
She is a very very active cat and loves to play chase and hunting games; her fave toys a felt ball and a feather stick. She runs and chases, through the rabbit tunnel and will run around with the felt ball and play fetch. I feel she has dogs genes and a bit of a hunter. She will chase and leap until she panting for breath.
Great with food, litter tray and treats. Can jump quite high and effortlessly gets on the work tops, esp. if cooked chicken about! Still gets spooked by sudden moves and finds the washing machine very scary noise-wise. Her favourite resting place is on the top level of the tall cat tree!
We are sure in time she will trust her new owner/s and learn from positive experiences that she is loved and won’t be let down ever again. She has come on leaps and bounds in her foster home which is a good sign she’ll do the same in a new home!
