Bamboo came into the shelter in March as an injured stray and had to have her tail removed but thankfully she has recovered well. She is extremely nervous but little by little she is beginning to trust humans...just a teeny bit! She does not let staff pet her just yet but she enjoys being brushed and she adores looking out the window of the cattery watching the world go by. Our regular volunteer Brian sits in her pod and has little chats with her, she's a very good listener.
She's only 2 years old but we're sure she'd have a lot of stories to share with us too! Bamboo needs an experienced cat owner who will just leave her be and let her find her paws in her new home. She will need to be an indoor cat. A nice sunny window sill to perch on is a must for this noisy little lady and an owner who won't come looking for affection. Over time, it may be months even years before Bamboo comes to you looking for rubs but feeling safe and secure will help her settle and learn to trust you. A home where she is the only cat is important so as not to add any more stress in her life.
Are you a cat lover that could help Bamboo find her happy ever after? Please visit the shelter and talk to the cattery team. We are open Tuesday - Sunday from 12-4pm and no appointment is needed.
