Catthew is the perfect combination of independent and adorable.  You’ll instantly fall for Catthew’s sweet face and lovable personality. He is a character with many feline foibles!

  • He enjoys laying in the sun under a window and watching the world outside.
  • Catthew enjoys neck rubs and scratches under the chin, provided he’s in the mood.
  • He knocks on doors, so his carer can open them for him.
  • He ‘talks’ to his career when he wants something.
  • He enjoys time sitting high up on the ledges of the cat tree.
  • Although he likes affection on his terms, he always greets his carer in the morning and rubs against her legs to say good morning.
  • This boy likes to keep all four paws on the ground and complains loudly when picked up.
  • He likes the toy on a stick, or the laser pointer; it’s beautiful to see his playful side.
  • He loves yoghurt! He appears instantly his carer sits down with some.  He sits next to her and stares, with a cute face, indicating he would like some and of course, he always gets a little.

Catthew isn’t a run of the mill smoochie cat and likes his space, but he is such a sweetheart and loving in his own way.  It is not that he doesn’t like human touch, we feel he just doesn’t cope with too much physical stimulation.

Catthew is a handsome, mellow boy, who will win the hearts of his forever family. He needs a patient person or family, willing to give him the time he needs to develop trust.  Catthew would prefer a quiet home with no young children and, although he is currently sharing a house with other cats, we suspect he would prefer the house to himself.

Thank you to Hamish of Appleby Photography for the fantastic photos of Catthew.
