Ella & Murphy
Ella & Murphy are a pair of timid cats that recently moved to another fosterer. They are approximately 3 years old.

Ella is black & white and Murphy is tabby & white. Both are dsh.

Murphy is the bravest of the pair and, with the previous fosterer, he would play and cuddle with the her and Ella would play and take treats from her hand.

Unfortunately, following the move they have become less trusting again and it's taking time and effort by the new fosterer to encourage them out and trust again. However, after almost 2 months, Murphy is slowly starting to trust the fosterer and, although he's not keen on being touched, Murphy is eating treats from the fosterers hand and she has, recently, managed to stroke him in very small doses. Unfortunately, Ella is still very timid and spends most of her time hiding behind the curtain while the fosterer is around. However, when on their own they curl up on a cat bed together.

They are looking for a family who is happy to let them do their own thing to help them gain confidence. They clearly don't like disruption and will take a while (possibly months) to trust and settle. During that period, they will need their own space, where they can feel safe and the family can visit to encourage Murphy to come to them and hope that Ella follows her brother.

They may never be cuddly lap cats but with time and understanding, they will develop.
