I am Pilchard and I am 10 years old. I came into rescue in May 2011 as my owner died and I had lived there since I was a kitten and was used to a quiet home without any children. Unfortunately I am proving difficult to rehome as I have my quirks but once you get to know and understand me I will prove to be a real character. Member of staff Vicky thinks I am a very clever cat and my ways make her laugh. When the staff clean my pen or spend time with me when I see an outstretched arm reaching for a litter tray or bowl I will nip your hand but sometimes I miss! I do this as if it’s a game or because I want attention.
I don’t break the skin although it does make you jump. If I am in a situation that I don’t like e.g. when I am in the cat corridor but it’s time to go back in my pen I can turn it up a notch and people have to take more care. I need an owner who will understand my ways and give me the home I so desperately need.
