Morticia the domestic short hair cat



Domestic short hair

2 Years old

Black and White


Everybody say Hi to Pugsley's beautiful Muma, Miss Morticia.
Morticia has had lots to cope with since being in our care, she is a mother of three young kittens which were born in a multi-cat household, then she came to our cattery when the kittens were just 3 weeks old and she found all this quite overwhelming and was quite fearful. Morticia's kittens became very poorly with cat flu so within the first week in our care.
Morticia very kindly shared her parenting role with a staff member in their home which required a lot of trust from Morticia with her Carer. She handled all handling very well she would give a hiss but never anything more. Then given time to feel safe and observe and routine she started to come out to eat and actively push her head against the hand for strokes.
Giving Morticia time and patience is the way to win a place into her heart. She is a very sweet cat once you have bonded with her but this will require time, she will need her own room with consistency where she can predict times of interaction with humans.
Morticia most certainly showed most confidence when in the home than she does in the cattery.
Morticia will need a quiet home, in an adult only environment without any other animals. Unfortunately even though Morticia has come from a multi cat household you may think she would be able to live with another cat however, due to the Cat Flu Symptoms that have been suffered by both Mum and kittens she would not be able to live with another cat.
If you would like to give Morticia her forever home please email us at for a perfect match application form.

I'm a shy guy; I'll need time to settle

I'd prefer an adult only household

I'd prefer to be the only cat in a home

I love a kiss but on my own terms
