8 Lives Cat Rescue
Rehoming Cats & Kittens: Derbyshire & South Yorkshire
Timtam came to us along with her brother Tiktok when their human was no longer able to care for them due to health issues.  She'd been born in the house she lived in so it was a big upheaval for her to move.  It took her quite a while to settle and feel confident around us, longer than it took her brother.  Unfortunately her brother was too boisterous for her and we took the decision to rehome them separately.  Since he moved on her confidence has grown considerably.  She gets on well with most of the other cats who live here ... most of the time :)   She loves to come for cuddles, and purrs and snuggles very happily.  If you go to her, rather than her coming to you, she is still quite nervous and skittish.  

She needs a fairly quiet home with someone/s who have time and patience to enable her to properly come out of her shell and start to shine.  Although things were difficult with her brother she's lived happily alongside other cats here, so hopefully she'd be ok with another friendly cat(s).  There have been a few squabbles but mostly she happily does head bumps with the others and enjoys sharing head washes.   We believe she's lived as an indoor cat until coming into rescue so may be happy being an indoor cat.  However she's had lots of fun playing in our outdoor enclosure here so will probably be keen to have a safe garden to explore onece she's settled in her new home.  She'll need to be kept safetly indoors for AT LEAST A MONTH on arrival in her new home, and indoors during hours of darkness with access to a litter tray at all times for the rest of her life.  

She's spayed, microchipped and fully vaccinated.  Health check at the vet revealed no issues.   She had some issues with fleas/worms and over grooming on arrival here but that's all settled now and she has a beautiful shiny black coat.

All our adoptions bring 4 weeks free insurance through Pet Plan.

We always homecheck prior to adoption, and ask a minimum donation of £80 for each adult neutered cat.. There’s more about our adoption process here: http://www.8livescatrescue.org/adoption-process.html and there's info about how we've adapted the process in light of Covid here: https://8livescatrescue.com/2020/11/21/adapting-and-adopting/

You’ll find some more photos and stories about our cats on our blog: https://8livescatrescue.wordpress.com/ and facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/8Lives/   There are lots of photos of Timtam and Tiktok and stories of their settling into rescue on there so do please check it out. 

Please note that although we are listed on Cat Chat in both South Yorkshire and Derbyshire, we only rehome in Sheffield and just over the border into Derbyshire.

Please contact us at [email protected] if you think you can offer her the home she deserves.
