Claus the domestic shorthair cat



Domestic Shorthair

1 year approx.

Black and White


Claus is our Shy but affectionate 1 Year Old black and white domestic Short Hair.
Claus came to us after being abandoned, he really hasn't has the best start in life. Claus is a very shy and timid boy and still taking his time settling into the cattery - he has taken a liking to his hidey bed which his safe place.
Claus is currently looking for a quieter home, who can allow him time to settle in and let him grow in confidence at his pace. Claus will benefit in the home with having plenty of hidey spaces that he feels safe in and can come out and explore when he is ready.
Claus has shown an interest in taking treats when he's in his bed and will poke his head out and take them from your hand but we haven't quite mastered coming out all the way just yet. Claus benefits from slow interactions as well as consistency, this will help him come out of his shell a little more.
Claus has shown positive reactions to fuss and strokes, he will purr to his heart content but is still unsure about going all the way with approaching us humans.. Claus hasn't shown any interest in playing with toys but this could all change in time.
Claus can use litter trays, he hasn't yet used her cat flap but this is something he may need guidance with once he is settled into a home
Claus is looking for a home where he is the only animal, this will give him time to build his confidence without pushing him too far too fast
Claus can live with cat savvy children of secondary school age that will give him the space he needs whilst adjusting to the home. He may be able to be rehomed with other small animals, dependent on their accommodation security and location in the home.
If you think you can offer this little boy a home them please email to request an application form.
This assessment is ongoing and subject to change.

I would prefer not to live with a dog

I'd prefer to be the only cat in a home

I could live with children secondary school age

I'm a shy guy; I'll need time to settle

I need to be able to go outside and explore
