Will you consider me?
My name is Heidi.
Many of you will know that cat-lover extraordinaire Patricia Knight died suddenly and very prematurely last month (August 2016). She had owned nine lovely pet cats. Several of these cats are being looked after in Cuddles for the moment, while suitable homes are being sought for them. Homes have already been found for Zoe and Buddy and we at Cuddles have decided to integrate Dolly into our own family. Ted and Dougal are being very accommodating so far and we are finding the introduction process a lot easier than we imagined. Check out our Facebook page for updates on how Dolly is settling in.
We are featuring one of Tricia’s cats each day this week. Thursday’s cat is Heidi.
Heidi along with Sammy (Wednesday’s cat) were from a TNR (trap, neuter, return) colony of cats from the Riverside area of Galway. She came to Galway Cat Rescue at 4 months old. Similarly to Molly and Sally, Tricia offered Heidi and Sammy a foster home and tamed them. A little time passed and Tricia adopted these two as she couldn’t bear to part with them.
Heidi lives up to her name, loving somewhere secure to hide away, but wants to watch what is going on. She is a little shy with new people but once she is around you for a while she will learn to trust you and it is so rewarding in particular to see Heidi relax. Just like Tricia’s other cats, Heidi loves to have the freedom to go out and play and can spend hours outside exploring happily, after which she loves to curl up in a nice secure, warm place. Heidi has been neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped and flea/wormed. Heidi will take a little time to adjust but with patience and a gentle approach she will relax. She loves under chin and face rubs. Heidi is used to a quiet house without children but older children would be acceptable. She gets on very well with other cats.
Do you have the purrfect home for Heidi? If so, please contact Galway Cat Rescue by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or send them a message via Facebook.
