Unsocialised cat: a cat that cannot be handled or picked up, may growl, hiss or run away when approached.
Timid cat: a cat that can be handled and picked up but avoids contact with people where possible.
Socialised/friendly cat: a cat that can be handled and enjoys human interaction - does not run when approached.
Special Notice: COVID-19
While the health and wellbeing of the cats in our care is our foremost concern, the health and wellbeing of our volunteers and supporters comes a close second. Our priority now is paying the bills we have already incurred and providing care for the 73 cats and kittens currently with us. We regret to inform our community that all services are suspended until the situation improves and we are able to access our usual fundraising streams.
