MEEKS – GREY & WHITE 1 year old loving male ragdoll, can bite. Adoption fee £400 to help rescue. Will be neutered, flea’d and chipped if not already done.
PLEASE NOTE all cats need to be strictly indoor only (no garden needed to home a cat from us usually, but space in home needed for cat and things) or if you will keep indoor with a secure catio or professionally enclosed cat proofed garden. This cat needs a bigger home with stairs ideally, see below).You need to be able to provide vet records for a previous indoor only cat, to show vet care. Meeks is a 1 year old gorgeous loving, affectionate ragdoll, but when he does not get his own way or gets overstimulated, he can bite. He may need a doggie friend or a friendly playful kitten maybe? Not lots of pets as he was an only cat when he needed more stimulation, so can be an only pet if he can have lots and lots of stimulation and adopter is experienced with naughtly cat to help improve his biting at times. It can be overstimulated during play or it can be when he say, has play stopped and he wants more or is stopped from doing something. There was a 4 year old in his previous home, which is why he was given up, as overstimulation meant he bit and grabbed her legs. No children under 12 or 14 depending on the children.
We have found this behaviour in ragdolls previously and homed with other pets to an experienced home. Ideally experience or tolerance with cats with this behaviour previously. One previous adopter exclosed their garden for that ragdoll and the other pets and the behaviour disappeared.
He is in foster near Worcester, Worcs and has to be adopted by car from fosterer.
Before applying for a Strawberry cat please read the following.
1. Unless otherwise stated, our cats are strictly indoor only. This means that windows/doors cannot be left open in any room to which the cat has access. A cat cannot be trained to be indoor only – it must be supervised. All members of the house must be in agreement, and understand about keeping doors and windows closed. We are happy to re-home to a flat but, likewise, this means windows closed and no balcony access, unless the balcony is totally cat-proofed (netting all the way), same is true for roof terraces, so that they cannot drop to their death.
2. Unless otherwise stated, we do not re-home to children under 6 years old. If there is nothing stated to contrary, assume the cat cannot go to a child under six. For other cats, please also bear in mind that some cats may also be found to be unsuitable, even for children over 6. WE DO NOT HOME WITH PEOPLE PLANNING CHILDREN, AS SO MANY CATS ARE GIVEN UP JUST BECAUSE CHILDREN ARRIVE OR CATS DEVELOP BEHAVIOURAL ISSUES AFTER BABIES ARRIVING
3. It is a requirement of our adoption policy that lifetime insurance is obtained and maintained for every cat adopted. We provide 5 weeks free insurance with every adoption, but the original policy may not suit you and as we are not financial advisors you should seek out the best and appropriate insurance to suit your own needs.
4. Most cats are in Greater London, Essex or Worcestershire (an hour from Birmingham), with some fostered further afield like Durham at times. See each listing for details – if not detailed it will be Greater London, London or Worcs. Cats cannot be adopted by public transport – you must be able to collect by car or get a taxi home from fosterers home (many get a lift or get a taxi home with cat and things). If you are happy with the above criteria and want to enquire further or reserve a cat, please email.
