Martha and Patch are mother and son, they were previously adopted from CHAT by one of our fosterers who cared for Martha an her litter of kittens before deciding to adopt Martha and Patch. Martha is 6 years old and her son Patch is 3 years old.
Their previous owners tell us that ; "Martha is such a beautiful cat, when she arrived all she did was hide and wouldn’t come anywhere near my husband or I. It’s taken a long time and a lot of work but Martha is now a very loving cat, I believe we helped build her trust back in people and let her know what it means to be loved. Often she can be cautious of new people and likes her alone time (often snoozing on top of a radiator or the sofa) but she will occasionally surprise you and come over for a cuddle.
Patch arrived at our home at only two weeks old and we have watched him grow into the chunky little boy he now is. He was the runt of the litter, always the last one to feed and once his siblings started getting adopted he finally got a look in at meal times and has gone strength to strength. Patch picked up on his mums behaviour early on and has always been a nervous character, but once he trusts you he loves all the attention. He will often sit with you of an evening and will even start pawing if you stop stroking him. He can be rather demanding really! But who doesn’t love relaxing with a cat on their lap. We welcomed our first child in March and both cats have been really gentle and calm around my son (only 8 months) allowing him to chase and stroke them without any fuss. Again it comes with great sadness that we had to give them up and I wish you all the luck in rehoming them."
This year has been difficult for Martha and Patch, a new baby in their lives, then water damage to their owners home meant that the cats had a stay in a cattery for several weeks whilst their home was repaired, they returned home unsettled and then poor Patch has developed epilepsy and is now on daily medication to control his condition and prevent fitting.
His owners have felt unable to cope with caring for the cats as well as disruption in their home and the arrival of a new baby.
Patch and Martha prefer being indoor cats and this is safer for Patch so they are seeking an indoor only home.
We will continue to provide Patch's treatment for his epilepsy under our Long Term Foster Scheme via our Lewisham Veterinary clinic.
