Heidi

Heidi is looking for a new beginning from her current foster home and is a sweet girl who loves to show you her happy feet dance as she pads away on your lap. She is a dear little thing who gives the best head bops ever! Once she is happy and settled you see the very best of Heidi but she is a nervous girl and takes her own time to form bonds. Once she settles in and becomes part of the furniture, you'll know she only has eyes for you and its super rewarding to know that you were the one who gets her to that point as well as being the one she comes to when she is worried or sad.

Other Notes

Heidi is currently living in a temporary foster home until her new forever home is found. You will need to come in for an interview to assess your suitability and if successful you can go forward to meet Heidi in her current home environment. Heidi is ok to be left for a full working day provided a cat flap is fitted. She is a bit shy so a cat flap makes it easier for her to find her way back home. Based on her past history and current temperament she requires a quiet all adult home without too much going on. This will also be dependent on if she likes who she meets, isn’t scared or fearful and that those she meets are also calm and respectful towards her. Every adoption is unique and we want to make sure all our cats are happy and cared for so we recommend pet insurance and you must register with a local vet. Vet costs vary so please look into the expense involved in caring for a cat. Heidi has been neutered, microchipped, 1st vaccine (at least) given and is up to date with her flea & worm treatments. She has also been health checked and behaviourally assessed which all help to guide our re-homing criteria. Heidi has had a clean and polish of her teeth, including having couple of teeth removed as well. She is now looking for her forever home with a very special somone.

Foster Carer Comments

Heidi is currently in a foster home waiting to be adopted and this is what her foster carers have to say about her: Heidi is a sweet but very nervous girl! I barely saw her the first three weeks she was here, she was obviously only brave enough to come out when I was out or asleep and spent most of her time hiding behind a chair! Then one day she decided to venture out, not only did she come out from hiding, but also jumped straight onto my lap and spent several minutes doing happy paws on me as well as giving me constant, pretty firm headboops! Since then, she now does this routine several times a day, every day which is really lovely and I feel like it's our special bonding time! She can be very affectionate but it's always on her terms, as she can be such a nervous girl, she does run away if I approach her, so I let her come to me in her own time, although there have been a couple of times very recently that she's let me go to her and stroke her a little bit so it's baby steps with her! She is gradually becoming more playful and has started following me into the kitchen (even when it's not dinner time) so is obviously becoming more comfortable and that is very rewarding to see! She has come on leaps and bounds since being here, but it did take time to get her to this point! I guess she will always have a nervous disposition and she can be very flinchy with sudden movements and touches but with the right home and a loving, patient owner who understands nervous cats, I am convinced she will flourish!
