Meet Etienne; a beautiful black, 1 year old neutered male domestic short-haired cat that has been with us since May 2007, when he arrived as a stray. Initially, Etienne was extremely timid and practically untouchable, choosing to run and hide whenever approached.
He has settled a little better into cattery life now, although he is still a very timid cat who will need someone with a lot of time and patience to bring him around. Yet, we have already seen signs of improvement, as Etienne will now let us stroke him for short periods of time, although he does not seem to really enjoy it at the moment.
Because Etienne is so timid he often hides in his pod or bed where the public can hardly see him which is a shame because he is a beautiful young cat who deserves a second chance. What Etienne really needs is a quiet and calm home environment, preferably with children aged 14+ and with understanding owners who will be willing to take the time and patience to really help Etienne settle and to gain confidence and really come out of himself.
We are confident that if given this opportunity Etienne will finally come around and become a lovely, friendly cat. Etienne is only young and deserves a chance in life so please don’t overlook him!
