Meet Gretchen

Add to favourites

Say hello to Gretchen!

This cute senior came to us as a stray and was never claimed, so she is starting her search for her purrrrfect retirement home!

We don’t know much about her history, however it does seem she prefers to be the only cat in the household. She would thrive in a home where she is able to explore her new environment freely, and find somewhere safe to lounge around. She really loves her cat post with a hiding hole, and can often be found watching the world from her cozy spot!
She enjoys treats and absolutely loves to have some nice wet food! She has been very reliable with using her litter box, and hasn’t had any accidents since coming into our care. She can be a little chatty when you come see her, and will come down from her hiding spot to greet you! She also knows the sounds of the treat bag being opened, and can quickly be located with a little jingle!

Gretchen is a little purrticular, and doesn’t overly enjoy very much affection. She will tolerate pets and rubs for a few short minutes, but has no fear in telling you off with a swat or nibble when shes had enough. She would much rather watch you from the sidelines and decide when and if is the time for pets. She may get more comfortable in her home and become a cat who enjoys loving more, but only time will really tell!
Due to all of this, she would do best in a quiet laid back home that can allow her to retire in peace.

If youre looking for a cat who can live on their own terms, Gretchen is the girl for you!
