Minnie came to us during a very difficult time in her life. We don’t know full details of her former life but know that she hasn’t had the best of starts.
Her journey with Sunny Harbour Cat Rescue started when she was handed into us in rough shape with a litter of starving, dying kittens. Mum was so weak she could barely feed and look after herself and through self preservation had no choice but to ignore her babies. She didn’t have access to the food stores she needed and as a result had been unable to produce milk for the babies.
A sad but all too common occurrence these days.
Mum was far too weak to raise her young and we feared for her health so the babies were switched to bottle feeding so that we could concentrate on getting her well. Sadly by the time this little family got to us the kittens little bodies had already been ravaged by starvation and all passed away over 2 to 3 days.
Minnie however, somehow found her strength to keep fighting and fight she did. It has taken us several months to get Minnie back to full health but she is now fighting fit and ready to embark on a new and much happier chapter in her life.
Minnie has won over many hearts at Sunny Harbour with her gentle, loving, personality and were we not all from multi cat homes we are sure she would be heading home with one of our staff.
Minnie requires a cat free home where she will be both now and in the future, an only cat.
Minnie is terrified of other cats and can as a result of this chase them away aggressively.
She loves to play with you with interactive toys such as her laser pen or feather Tickler but hasn’t completely worked out the art of self play yet as she has probably not been given the opportunity to learn in her formative years. That said she is Catnip daft and will think nothing of launching a full scale attack on Catnip puff balls or our knottie toys.
Minnie adores affection now she feels safe at the harbour to enjoy ear rubs and strokes and would benefit greatly from a quiet household with no young children. An understanding cat orientated family is what this gorgeous little girl needs to show her how life should be with loving pawrents.
At a mere 2 to 3 years old this little girl had so much to offer the right family willing to open their hearts to her. Could that be you?
We are very sure that once you meet Minnie, you too will fall for her sweet, gentle, loving nature. She truly is one of the sweetest cats you could meet.
