Harold and Hayley are a bonded pair and we don’t want them to be separated.
I guess it’s just the way it is – despite what their parents are like one of their children is confident right from the start and yet in the same family there can also be a very shy one!
Just like children, kittens are individuals and here are two kittens who are a bit out of the ordinary. Although their mother, Harriet was very confident, Hayley and Harold are very shy at first and it has taken a while for them to start trusting us and allowing us to stroke them.
We have been working patiently with Harold & Hayley at SAFE Haven since they came into care and they have shown gradual improvement so we are confident that if they go to a home where they are given time to relax, they will gradually start to trust their new guardians. But this will take time. Whoever adopts them must understand that they won’t be able to pick them up and cuddle them straight away. These two kittens find comfort in each other’s company and will be better off in a home with older children, a home where their new guardians will accept them for what they are and allow them to be just that. A family without preconceptions of what a cat should be or not be or how it should act would be ideal.
So if you’ve got a large heart and an accepting spirit these two young souls could find peace in your home. We know that they are capable of much more and if they could grow and develop in a loving environment where they have all they need, they will start to relax. In time they will show you what’s behind their shy facade and reveal the other parts of their personalities.
The shy cats are worth it in the end and your bond with them is always extra special because of the time and effort you put into it.
If you think you would like to give these kitties a home we would love to discuss them with you so please give us a call!
