Rehoming Cats & Kittens: Cheshire & Derbyshire
Update from Rachel’s foster Mum: Sassy Rachel has settled well into the home and loves to join you in anything you are involved in, from sorting out cupboards to making the bed. She has rapidly learnt the feeding routine and what’s her best chance at getting out of the cat room at feeding times. She’s also learnt that at breakfast and tea, she gets a hug and waits for it, she loves her head being rubbed and scratched at this time, but only her head. Just before breakfast I can hear her leaping at the cat room door, I am sure she is trying to pull the handle. Smart cat. 
She is a very very active cat and loves to play chase and hunting games; her favourite toys are a felt ball and a feather stick. She runs and chases, through the rabbit tunnel and will run around with the felt ball and play fetch. I feel she has dogs genes and a is bit of a hunter. She will chase and leap until she is panting for breath.
The lashing out has stopped. If you ask her do something that she's not keen on or she wants leaving alone, she just flips her tail and glares at you. And if you do push her boundaries she will hiss, esp. if its something she really doesn’t want to do.
My brother and niece (13yrs old) cat sat recently and whilst she was hissy at times, she spent hours playing with my niece. 

She is great with food, litter tray and treats. She can jump quite high and effortlessly gets on the work tops, esp. if cooked chicken is about! Still gets spooked by sudden moves and finds the washing machine very scary noise-wise. Her favourite sleeping place is on the top level of the tall cat tree!
“Night is a black cat with Moonscape amber eyes, walking gently across the Blue silhouette sky”.Black is beautiful and that is definitely to be said for Rachel. She has a  sad story of being abandoned, along with a rabbit, no-one to feed them or care for them for at least a week. She has been spayed, vaccinated and micro chipped. She is a healthy cat, just a touch of mild gingervitis but a good diet should see to that. She will need a pet and child free home and due to her having a form of fear reactivity (she is not aggressive) she needs an experienced cat owner who will give her the space and time she needs to come around.

Since being in a foster home (her foster Mum has been amazing!) she has relaxed somewhat. We are sure in time she will trust her new owner/s and learn from positive experiences that she is loved and won’t be let down ever again.
