NEEDS TO LIVE WITH ANOTHER SENSIBLE CAT WHO WILL SHOW HER NOT ALL HUMANS ARE BAD
AN ADULT ONLY HOME
NOT DOG TESTED
PATIENT, LOVING OWNERS WHO HAVE KNOWLEDGE OF NERVOUS CATS
NEEDS TO BE AN INDOOR CAT FOR THE FORSEABLE FUTURE OR ACCESS TO A CATIO
Gabi is a 10-12 month old very nervous little girl who came into foster with her babies and was scared of absolutely everything. She is very much a work in progress but has progressed enough now to look for her loving and patient pawrents. She was semi feral arriving into foster but is learning to trust humans slowly.
She loves her food (any flavour, jelly and gravy) and because she is so food orientated it has been a great help with getting her used to humans. For the first 3 weeks, she hissed every time she saw her foster pawrent and would hide in a corner of a large dog crate trying to make herself invisible. Fast forward and she now greets her foster parents with purrs and head bumps as long as they have food
She does not like to be picked up, and hates a cat carrier. She does not know what toys are and at the moment will not play preferring to have mega helpings of food and fussings. Socialising with humans is a daily ongoing task and she gets on really well with one of the resident cats who tells her daily that her foster parents are nice people. Any new owners are going to need to give her lots of time and space to settle in the home and make sure she doesn’t escape.
Gabi has not met any children and we would recommend an adult only home who won’t put any pressure on her to interact or play.
Gabi needs to live with an older chilled cat who can keep up the conversation that not all humans are bad and can be trusted. She has lovely conversations with her foster sibling by ‘chirping and whirring’ at each other. It was after one of their conversations that Gabi started to ‘come around’ to her foster parents.
Not dog tested
She currently has access to a covered crate and sees this as her safe space but is curious about exploring the rest of the house.
Gabi needs a quiet home where she can have as much, or as little attention as she wants where no pressure will be put on her to socialise with humans. We find it very sad that she is still a kitten herself, has already had a brood of her own and doesn’t know how to pay. This poor girl what has she been through. She definitely needs those special humans who can bring her out of herself and help her become all that she can. She’s still very young and has plenty of time to learn. She is going to need to be an indoor cat until completely bonded with her pawrents
Vaccinated, microchipped and up to date flea and wormer
Fostered in Tonypandy, RCT
