Shy Cat Level 3 - Name Your Adoption Fee

Rattler is a shy and frightened cat. He lived his life quite happily as a community TNR cat, but he lost his caregiver. This meant he no longer had a special person who cared for him outdoors and the difficult decision was made to bring him into the Adoption Centre to keep him safe. He has been introduced to his new feline roomies and we hope over time, he will enjoy the company of the other cats and learn to relax in the presence of humans.

Rattler will make a good companion cat to another lonely cat, but due to his lack of exposure at an early age to human companionship, it is taking him some time to be comfortable with humans. Recently, Rattler has begun to accept gentle pets from his favourite volunteers and staff and we are so proud of him. We don’t know if he will be a future lap cat, but we do know that he has great potential to bond with a special person or two.
