About Marmite

  • Kitten-like behaviour
  • Can live with respectful children aged 10 years and over
  • Needs to be the only animal in the home
  • Will eventually need indoor and outdoor access

Marmite came into our care through no fault of her own. At only 18 months old, she has had quite the journey and is now ready to find her forever home. Marmite is a sweet, gentle natured girl who can be quite vocal and demanding when she wants to be. She loves fuss and enjoys lots of attention. Marmite can sometimes have little moments when she wants her own space so will need an understanding owner who is willing to accommodate this. Marmite is only young, so is still very kitten-like and playful. She is going to need a home whereby she is kept physically and mentally stimulated. She could live with respectful children aged 10 years and over. Unfortunately she can't live with other animals. She will also 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.
