This is Maurice, a real cheeky chappy with a heart of gold!!! He was found as a stray with a nasty wound on the side of his face, and now that has healed he is ready for his new home.
Maurice is super friendly and really affectionate, BUT, he does nip your hands/fingers and sometimes he does it rather hard and he has drawn blood on a couple of occasions - after he has done this, he retreats and apologises, and he looks scared, we think that he has been told off in the past for doing this, so it's like he is waiting for us to do the same - but we don't, we just wait patiently for him to settle, and he does - he can be a lap cat at times and has been known to curl on a lap for 10 minutes or so :)
Maurice's new family should be experienced cat owners and adult only - we want someone to take him on who will continue to be calm with him and who will expect the odd nip on the hands as he is getting used to his new family. He is a greedy guts and eats really quickly, his new owners would benefit from investing in some puzzle feeders to slow him down a bit and to help keep his brain occupied. We suspect that he may always be a cheeky boy like this, but settled in a new home and with a nice garden and nearby land to explore safely, hopefully his cheeky behaviour will lessen over time, especially once settled with a family he knows and trusts. He will also need to be the only pet in his new home, the last thing he needs is a stressful introduction period when he is trying to find his feet.
Due to now being in a national lockdown we are closed for appointments but we are still taking applications for the cats we have for homing. We can only home animals within an hour of the centre to help us save both time and money as we are having to deliver them.
This application does not guarantee an adoption. We are inundated with applications and we will get in touch with you only if your application is approved.. Please bear with us & thank you for your patience.
Millbrook is still CLOSED and all applications must be filled out and emailed to [email protected]
