ZeeZee and Myers are 8 year old litter brother and sister half Abys who their current owner rescued from a bad situation when they were kittens. They had not been socialised at all and were consequently very nervous. They have now improved due to the attention given them by their current owner but are still nervous of strangers although very social with those they trust.
They have always had access to the quiet outdoors but are not streetwise cats since they have always lived rurally or on very quiet streets. They enjoy cat flaps and mostly have used a microchip flap to avoid other cats getting in.
Zz enjoys sleeping in quiet cosy spots most of the day and is active from around 5pm to 7am and he really loves the outdoors. Myers tends to be up and down all day and loves to spend time with you, following you around and playing in the garden. They are not lap cats but like to sleep next to you in bed or on the sofa, neither of them like to be picked up but they loved being stroked and brushed with a wire brush.
They are both very nervous of strangers and this has always been a problem, as long as they have a safe place to hide they are fine, otherwise they have run off outside and hidden in sheds for quite sometime. Once they know the person they come around, usually after a handful of visits. Myers is braver and more inquisitive whereas Zz is more nervous although he is more affectionate.
The owner is heartbroken to have to rehome the cats but is currently in a bad situation and has no option but to move in with family, they have dogs and cats in a busy area and keeping her cats would not work. She desperately wants them to go to a kind home where the owners understand rescue cats and are patient and kind and can offer them a quiet home with access to the outdoors. They have no health issues.
They can be rehomed separately or together and currently live in Sussex.
If you feel you could offer them a new home, please contact our Welfare officer, Harriet Patey, on 0208 669 1655 or email
