Juno

This pretty, semi-long haired young lady has been in our foster care for a couple of months. She was brought in as a stray, having just given birth outdoors to a litter that sadly all died, so we don’t know her history, only that she is very wary of interaction with people. At some point she has lost half of her lovely tail. Juno is beautifully house-trained, using a litter tray neatly, and is not a picky eater. Her fosterers have been working on gaining Juno’s trust by spending a lot of time in the same room, and by feeding her treats to lick off their fingers. Juno loves these treats and has very slowly started to come out from hiding when someone is in the room, to play with her favourite toys or chatter to birds through the window. She is still reluctant to receive other attention such as stroking or brushing but is completely non-aggressive. Juno plays a lot at night, and is also showing an interest in meeting her fosterer’s resident cats – unfortunately, the feeling is not mutual, so we haven’t been able to pursue this! We think that Juno would benefit from a quiet child-free home, with experienced cat owners who will be patient while she comes further out of her shell. A home with another young cat for companionship, and/or an outdoor environment such as a farm or stables where she can choose how much to interact with her people, would be ideal. Juno has had a tough start to her life. Can you offer her a happy and secure home?
