Description

Say hello to shy little Truffle. She has been living on the streets for many months and even had a litter of kittens before being trapped by our Community Team under their TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) scheme. Once Truffle had been caught, it quickly became obvious that, although timid, she was a very affectionate cat who would fare far better as a pet than trying to live a semi feral existence.

Truffle will need a quiet and understanding home to help her to gain more confidence around a home. She is quite noise sensitive and needs to learn that there is nothing to worry about. She will definitely need to be kept safely indoors (no windows or doors accidentally left open!) as she may be very difficult to catch if she panics and gets out. For this reason we will be looking for a cat-loving home with no other pets or children under 14.

We do feel that Truffle will want to be outdoors at some point but her adopter must be happy to take their time to form a strong bond and then let her out briefly while she gets used to her new surroundings. We will be particularly interested in a home that may be willing to build a CATIO in their garden. 

(For more information on CATIO's, a great place to look is ProtectaPet.  They offer £50 off an order (minimum spend applies) if you quote discount code OAKTREE, plus we receive a donation of £30.  They have a range of CATIOs and pet friendly fencing options on their website https://protectapet.com/ )

If you would like to know more about Truffle, please email in the first instance to: smallanimalteam@oaktreeanimals.org.uk    

Tell us a a bit about yourself and why you think she will be your perfect companion. Rather than click on the email link, you may need to copy the email address manually into your email 'TO' box, as some people report that the link does not work for them. Please include your full name, address and phone number. 

HOMING REQUIREMENTS

  • Home in a quiet location
  • Quiet pet free home with adults or children 14+
  • Someone with time to help Truffle build up confidence

WE HAVE MORE CATS IN NEED

On average, we have 400 animals come into our shelter every year. Please take a look at some of our cats looking for loving homes and see if you can find a friend for life. Where appropriate, all of our animals are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered. We also give each animal a behavioural assessment to identify their needs and help you find your perfect companion.
