Minxy is a black and white male aged 1-2 years old. He is a funny character, both amusing and slightly strange. We rehomed him in early September, but he was brought back after a couple of weeks because he kept going for his new person’s legs.
We were aware that he had done that in his previous home where he had been kept as an indoor cat and became bored and mischievous, but his new owner felt that she could not cope with his behaviour.
We put him in a room to see what he would do, and sure enough, several people had their legs lightly mangled as they were trying to leave the room. He loves people really and he just doesn’t want them to leave! We then put him up in the Cattery and started to socialise him with two young ginger toms that lived next door to him and Minxy was enthralled by them; he would follow them round chirruping and cooing it almost seemed as though he had never met another cat before. He now loves ginger cats the best and if there are none in the Home, he makes do with the ones that have a bit of ginger in them!
Minxy would greatly benefit from living with a calm, chilled, affable, preferably ginger cat in an experienced, adult household with people who have dealt with this kind of problem in the past. Or he could live with someone who has a penchant for wearing their riding boots or wellies indoors.
Once settled, he should be introduced to the garden; he loves his outside space here and immediately learned how to use his cat flap. He is a playful young chap who really does enjoy interacting with his people he just needs to be taught how to do it nicely.
