About me

Please meet Saffy,

Saffy is a beautiful 8 year old girl who came into our care to find a new home due to becoming stressed around the children in her previous home. Because of this Saffy is looking for a quiet adult only home.

Saffy has a condition called Feline Hyperesthesia Syndrome (FHS), this means saffy feels extreme sensitivity on her back, at the base of her tail. Saffy will stare at her tail, then attack the tail while vocalising. Saffy is on medication to help reduce her symptoms, she will need to remain on this medication throughout her life. Saffy usually takes the medication well in her food or treats. Saffy would like to find an owner who would be willing to learn about this condition and someone with experience in giving cats medication.

Saffy can enjoy a gentle fuss on her terms, but due to the FHS she can be extremely sensitive to touch and has been known to hiss and swipe when being touched. Once her medication has kicked in she will calm down, her previous owners said that she would enjoy sitting on their lap for a cuddle. Saffy will need an understanding owner who will give her space when she needs it.

Saffy enjoys the time she spends in our outdoor cat enrichment area, she would like access to outdoors once she has settled into her new home.

Saffy can become stressed around other animals so she would like to be the only pet in the house. 

if you would like to know more about Saffy, please contact reception.
