Gretel, our Abbey Cats stealth cat hasn’t had it easy. She came to us with three young kittens, and it was natural enough for the foster mom to give her some quiet and privacy so that she could raise her young in peace. But when her adorable kittens were adopted out, the inexperienced and busy foster mom left Gretel on her own in a basement room, entering only to feed her and change the litter box.
Gretel was moved to another foster, but by then was well set into her solitary ways. Now, for family reasons, her foster needs her moved again. We want this move to be the one that changes Gretel’s life. There is a home out there for Gretel, one with experienced cat owners and unconditional love, that can give her the space she needs while making her feel safe enough to creep out from under the bed and out of her shell.
A new foster home that can take on this challenge would be awesome, but a forever home that can give this kitty back her confidence and her life is what we really hope for. Gretel doesn’t want to be a dust bunny moggie; she wants to be your loved lap cat.
Gretel would not be suitable for anyone who does not have considerable experience in working with feral cats. Although she is not feral she presents as one and requires the same level of skill and patience as would a feral cat especially initially. She is not aggressive but is deathly afraid.
