North and Shrew

About me

Please meet North and Shrew,

North and Shrew came into our care because they were not getting along with the other cat in the house.

North is an 11 year old male DSH and shrew is an 8 year old female DSH.

North was originally found with a colony of cats when he was 3 years old, he was rescued and taken into a foster home before he found a more permanent home. Shrew was originally rescued as a feral 6 weeks old kitten after her mum had sadly passed away. Despite the fact that both North and Shrew have lived in a home for most of their life they are still very nervous around people.

North and Shrew did not cope well with the busy cattery life so they are currently in foster care. We get regular updates from the foster careers about how they are settling in. North is the more confident of the two and has started to explore the house a little during the day. Shrew is more nervous and does not leave her safe space much during the day, however the foster career is able to hear them both exploring in the evening/ night time when it is quiet.

North and shrew are looking for a very calm, quiet home with a patient owner who will be understanding of their nervous temperament. They will both take a very long time to warm up to people and come out of their shell. While they are settling into a new home, they will need to be provided with a safe space where they can go to relax when things become too scary for them.

If you would like to know more about North and Shrew, please contact reception.
