Meet Eric (and Polly)
Meet the dynamic duo of Eric and Polly! These two young cats came to us when their previous guardian could no longer care for them, and they are very eager to get out of the shelter and into their forever home. They are used to a very quiet home with a single person.
Eric and Polly have grown up together and rely on one other to feel safe and secure, so we will only be adopting them to a home where they can stay together.
Both have been very shy since they arrived in our care since they are adjusting to such a big change in their lives! Polly is a bit more confident and enjoys being pet when she’s comfortable but she can occasionally be a bit sassy if scared. Eric is still very nervous and likes to have somewhere to hide. His previous owner said Eric is the more shy of the two. Both of them are getting more comfortable now that they are learning the routine here but a guardian is going to have to be patient and gentle to try and bring them out of their shells. They aren’t really lap cats but can still be great companions given the time to adjust in their new homes and lots of love. We don’t know how they are with other cats or with dogs, so proper slow introductions will need to be done to ensure the best chance of success. We would recommend a quiet home without young kids running around as they are very nervous of fast action and loud noises. These young cats have a lot of potential and just need that special someone
