Pippin was born into a colony of 40 cats that lived in and around a hoarders house. She couldn't cope there as she hates other cats, she was sick, timid and depressed.
She came to us with 10 others from the same situation but was not making any progress until she was separated completely from them. She has gone through months of recovery and is the most beautiful soul, she will be the best addition to any family.
She is one that will be hard to say goodbye to that's for sure, she is the most affectionate girl. She loves being kissed and loves her bum and belly pats more than anything in this world... well.... besides her name, she is strangely obsessed with her name. She also gets along really well with rabbits !
Personality: Extremely loving, talkative, cuddly and a purrball.
Specific Requirements: Pippin does not like other cats and prefers to be an only cat, if given the space she will tolerate another cat but she must have all her own facilities separate from other cats or she will become an extreme bully and stop the other cat from fulfilling any basic needs and also will attack them if they try to escape her wrath. In saying that, to a human she is an absolute delight.
Pippin does not like food that doesn't look real, she is not a fan of tinned food, however she will eat "Dine" brand wet food available from Coles or Woolies. She loves foods such as Roast/BBQ Chicken, tuna or salmon in springwater, anything that looks like real meat.
She has a strange request, she loves heat as you can see in the photo, her favourite spot is on top of my reptile enclosure, directly over the heat lamp. A heated mat would be great for her, please do not leave her with it unattended. The only other thing to be aware of is that she will not let you pat her head until she trusts you, anywhere else is fine but the head until you have her trust as she will get scared and run.
General Requirements: Due to the time these cats have been with us, they will not be able to have a name change in the near future. They were socialized using their current names and they respond, and love their names.
All cats are to be strictly inside only cats, with the exception of outdoor day enclosures. These cats have been out on the streets before and they are terrified of going back. These cats will run and hide out of fear if exposed to outside, they also deserve to be kept safe from cars, predators and strangers. Please note cats also should be kept inside to keep wildlife safe.
New diets will have to be integrated slowly to avoid digestive problems. If changing diets please purchase a daily probiotic for cats to minimise the risk of digestive upset, it is also a good idea to purchase this for maintenance of your cats health and to avoid digestive upset caused by stress.
