About Mae

Mae came into our care with a litter of kittens, and we soon recognised that she was heavily pregnant again. Mae is now ready to steer away from motherhood and is looking to find her forever family. We believe Mae has had a difficult start in life after being found as a stray, and it was quite clear quickly that she has a lack of trust with humans. She is very vocal, and wants to interact, especially at dinner time; but she will only accept small amounts of fuss at the minute. Mae is going to need an understanding owner who is willing to help build her confidence in the home and take the transition at her own pace. Mae needs to have a quiet, adult-only home with no other animals. She will eventually need indoor and outdoor access.

Cat care

Until a cat is settled into a new home it is essential that they are not let outside and as a general guide this would be about four weeks. However, this is dependent on the individual cat.
Whilst a cat is confined to indoors you can introduce new toys for them to play with and chase. Cat nip toys can be especially rewarding. A scratch post will hopefully discourage them from choosing your sofa to sharpen their claws! Regular grooming by you will help to cement the bond between cat and new owner and although cats are known to generally be more independent than a dog, they thrive on companionship and interactive play. Even adult cats can be persuaded to practice their stalking and pouncing skills on an old shoelace, or play hide and seek in a cardboard box.
