Adopting a shy cat is like embarking on a journey. You know that it will provide challenges along the way but also that it has the potential to be very rewarding, and you’re happy to stride out, take everything as it comes and deal with it step by step.
Stella is very shy. She came into SAFE with her brother Ziggy & she is taking a while to settle into SAFE. Her main response has been to hide as she is finding the experience quite overwhelming.
If you come to meet Stella at SAFE she will be very timid and retiring but she has shown signs that she really wants to be brave by rolling over around & inviting pats. But she hasn’t been able to take that courageous next step yet. We’re fairly sure that once she is able to settle into a home environment with routines and consistency, that she will gradually let her defences down, stop hiding and reveal a big heart. Yes, it will be a journey with Stella but if you let it happen at her pace there will be much joy to be had.
If the statements below describe you & your home, please come in to meet Stella or call us on 0404 753 227.
