Meet Almond! Almond is a very sensitive girl who is looking for a quiet home that understands cat behaviour. Almond is an anxious girl who, when scared, can scratch. She is looking for an owner that will be able to help work on this behaviour and help her become more confident. When warmed up Almond is a friendly cat but enjoys her space, if you’re looking for a more independent feline friend she is for you.Almond has started coming out of her shell and has shown she does enjoy little head pets but she does have a very low petting tolerance and will need a guardian who is experienced and knows how to read her signs for when she is reaching her limit for petting. She is not keen of full body pets at all. Almond would enjoy a quiet, adult only home where she can relax and come out of her shell slowly. Almond has been adoring a woven bed and we can see her enjoying lounging in front of a window all cozy in her bed!
