Meet Celine

Add to favourites

Celine is a diva, there’s no denying it. You can’t tell it from looking at this beauty but Celine didn’t have the best start to life. She came into the care of the SPCA from a rural property with a lot of cats. She had been living in an outbuilding with almost no contact with people and having kittens continually. Celine was caught and brought into the SPCA to give her a chance at a better life however she’s going to need a very special home, ideally one with experience working with semi-feral or under socialized cats. Celine is extremely nervous of people and being handled after spending the first part of her life without human contact. She has spent the last several months in a foster home getting braver and learning how nice it is to have a proper home. She has made progress and has gotten much more comfortable but still tends to be very skittish and feels safest being a few feet away watching the goings on of the people in her home. She accepts pets under certain circumstances and will eventually let out the purrs and relax a bit but will not seek out attention and generally retreats to her hiding places when approached. She needs to have a safe space to retreat to when scared and should be kept strictly indoors. Celine would be happiest in a quiet home without a lot of visitors and no young children as they would be much too scary for her.
Though nervous and fairly aloof with people at the moment Celine is great with other cats and would do best in a home with other friendly felines to show her the ropes and help her feel comfortable. She would love to have a friend to play with as she is very playful and loves batting her toys around. She also enjoys perching on her scratching posts and watching through the windows (especially birds who she will chatter at). Celine may also be able to get used to a very calm, cat savvy dog as long as they give her plenty of space with slow, proper introductions (there will be lots of hissing at first).
Celine is a diamond in the rough who just needs someone special who is determined to continue working with her socialization so she can really shine. She has so much potential and hopes to truly realize it in her fur-ever home. Could you be that special someone who will show Celine what it is to be loved?
