Dear (Mr & Mrs) Papa Bear and Annabella are a gorgeous couple of neutered 1-year-olds who have been through a lot together.   

They were rescued from the danger of living stray on a very busy road along with their many kittens and one other adult female cat.  A nearby shop that had taken pity on them, were providing food and contacted us for help so we brought this family of 12 into the shelter.  

Papa Bear - Papa Bear was very protective over his kittens.  He had most likely had to try his best to protect them from people, foxes and cars during their rough time on the streets.  Because of this he was constantly alert, preparing to fight whoever came near his babies until he learned to trust us. 

Once his babies went in pairs to loving forever homes, he became much more relaxed, trusting and appreciative of the love that we give him. He has a gigantic deep meow which he will tell you when he is hungry.  He is very much food orientated and this is a great way to win him over.  He will take time to get to know you then become a very cuddly cat that loves attention and strokes. When he fully trusts you he loves to sit on your lap. 

Annabella is a gentle little lady who has had very little human interaction. She is still very cautious of us but has come a long way.  She will roll over and show her tummy when we talk to her from outside of her pen but will run away and hide behind her Papa Bear when we enter.  She needs a lot more time to begin to trust humans. We have slowly started to introduce strokes which she is still very unsure of but in time we think she will get used to them.  She is so young that she has a playful nature so toys like bouncy balls to chase about.  

We would rather a female only household for this pair as Papa Bear has shown some signs of aggression towards men but we are willing to let potential adopters come in to meet them.   

 

- We need a home with some experience of building trust or prepared to learn

- We need adult only home - preferable female only

- We need a home together with no other pets

- We need a home with outdoor access
