Minnie is a very sweet, but slightly nervous girl. She came to us as she had difficulty dealing with her owner’s absence when they started going to work, after 3 years of being at home. Minnie is one of the kitties that has been used to having someone around throughout lockdown and a little after, and then struggled when her owner started leaving the house for work for 8 hours a day.

Minnie is also very smart, meaning that she didn’t have enough stimulation being cooped up in the home all day.

Minnie has shown herself to be very affectionate when she is in that frame of mind, and very playful and energetic too.

We believe she would benefit from having the choice to go outside in her new home. And feel she will also get a lot from play and other mental stimulation inside the home too, in the forms of routine interactive playtime, feeding times and puzzle games that she can enjoy on her own.

This may all sound like a bit of work, but the truth is, most cats would benefit from this kind of routine, so we feel it’s important that the right person comes along for Minnie, who will dedicate enough time to her mental as well as physical wellbeing.

She likes gentle strokes, and will normally let you know where she wants a fuss. She will nibble a little if becoming overstimulated or feeling a little insecure. However we feel this behaviour would subside when feeling safe and secure in her new home, as long as she is living with someone who will take things at her pace, provide her with all she needs and read her body language and behaviour to identify those needs.

She likes treats and playing with toys, and tapping her ping pong balls around. She enjoys moving toys, especially her springy whizzer!

Minnie likes having people around, not necessarily because she wants your attention all the time, but because she likes the security of knowing someone is there. Ideally she would go to a home where her new owners are around a lot of the time, but that can work with her to make her feel happier to be left alone for short periods.

Minnie needs to be the only animal in the house (no other cats or dogs please, and she’s a good hunter so keep any small furries secure!).

Minnie is a lovely cat who will be a great companion when she has settled in to her new home.
