Mary the domestic short hair cat



Domestic short hair

3 months



Meet Mary!

Mary is a very nervous kitten, although she does seem to want to come close to you once she's had time to gain her confidence. She likes to explore new surroundings in her own time. Whilst undisturbed, Mary is often hiding under a cat tree or in her bed. She seems to like to enjoy being high up, so a climbing cat tree would be fabulous for her.

Mary is happy to nosey about everywhere, and is very explorative in her own time. She is very unsure of interacting with people, and does find strokes quite stressful at the minute. This is something she needs time with and a calm family to help her gain her confidence.

Mary is fearful of grooming, and tries to run away from the brush. This may be something that new owners would need to work with gaining her confidence in.

When trying to pick up/handle Mary she will run away and hide. She is not confident being handled currently, and this is something that will need work.

Mary enjoys toys, although finds most confidence playing with them on her own.

Mary currently lives with her sisters, Winnie and Sarah. Mary is most often pottering about alone, but is also happy to play with the others. Mary and her sisters are cat flu carriers, and so will be seeking homes as the only cat in the house. Mary will be seeking a home with older children (12+) as she is quite nervous of loud/fast sounds. She may be suitable to rehome to a home with a cat-friendly dog.

If you think you can provide Mary with her forever home please get in touch by emailing us at for a perfect match application form.
