Milly needs someone to love and to be loved.
Milly is an exceptionally, shy girl and needs a quiet home, where her people will allow her time to settle and adjust, without expectation of her. When the time is right, she needs a family who will help her come out of herself, help her build confidence and an understanding that the world is a good place to be.
Milly came to us with many health issues. She lost her kittens and nurtured another litter before joining us and was quite traumatised. She nearly died initially and spent weeks boarding at a specialist health centre.
Whilst in our care, Milly has shown some interest in a young, male, cat and we feel a quiet, gentle, male, feline may be good for her. Her ideal home will be where someone is home a lot of the time, allowing her to familiarise to her new surroundings and gradually build trust. She is not suited to a family with children. She is litter trained.
Update: It has been slow but Milly has made progress. She will play with her toys, enjoys grooming herself and whereas she used to sleep in her cat cave bed, she now sleeps in a flat cat bed on the lounge. Milly looks more relaxed these days and definitely has come out of her shell however she is still very nervous and hides except for meals when her carer is home.
It is a big challenge to help a traumatised cat heal and will require giving Milly the time, space and safe environment she needs. Each seemingly small step of progress is really a huge step in the improvement of Milly’s quality of life. Milly will need a nurturing, patient person. Is that you?
