Moot has come into WARS through no fault of her own. She is the type of cat who is independent but will often want some cuddles but on her terms. Moot grew up not knowing the difference between people being kind or nasty to her. Therefore she doesn’t really understand how to interact with people. She does need a little help with grooming, but does enjoy it as it means she gets more attention.
Moot has been on foster with one of our staff members. "Moot has been a real joy to have around the house. She loves to come and greet me when i come home and sit on my lap while we watch TV together. She is a sweet natured girl but also needs her space. Its a balancing act to make sure you are not over stroking her. If you are then she will tell you off. She will never be an aggressive cat she will just slap you with her paw to say GET OFF, if she is being over handled. Some adorable traits she has is that she will climb herself under the bed sheets and bathe in their cosey warmth. She loves to be up high and is usually found on the window ledge staring out at the birds. She is a very clean cat and knows how to use a litter tray. Moot has a really cute broken meow that is really pleasant on the ears. She is also super soft as her fur is made from unicorns". She does need a little help with grooming, but does enjoy it as it means she gets more attention.
Moot will want a nice quiet home where she is the only pet. She will want eventual access to the outdoors, once settled in. She loves company, so maybe a family where someone is at home for a good part of the day would be nice for her.
Just like dogs it is important to introduce your new cat slowly into its new environment. Choose a safe place that is traffic free to initially settle them in and provide plenty of toys for them to play and chase. Providing a scratch mat or post will help discourage them from doing so on your furniture. Until the cat has settled it is important that the cat is kept indoors for a number of weeks. This along with grooming and interactive play will help develop your bond and ensure the cat is happy and settled in its new home.
