Cuddles the cute calico cat!
pretty & low maintenance
Female Domestic Short Hair Cat

Cuddles was a stray that was being fed by an elderly lady, who got her vet work done and let her live on her property with her mum Pippa and sister Harleyquin. Sadly the lady went into care and then passed away, and the cats, while still being fed, were left to themselves and lost a lot of the socialisation that they had gained.
It has taken a while for that socialisation to be regained, and after many months in foster care Cuddles's true personality has shown through! She hasn't quite lived up to her name, but she loves a pat and loves to play with her sister Harleyquin. She still doesn't like to be picked up and held much - although she is improving; or to sit on laps, but her confidence has grown so much in her time in foster care that these things may not be very far away. She will very much reward a patient adopter who loves to watch her and her sister run madly around the house chasing each other and can give her all the pats she wants.
Cuddles is a medium sized pretty calico cat with soft fur and lovely markings. She looks like she's been painted by a fine artist! She's been outside but is quite happy to now be an inside cat. Cat People will provide resources and training for anyone adopting Cuddles, to help her become your perfect companion. If you want to make the effort with this gorgeous girl, we'll support you all the way.
Cuddles is bonded with her sister Harleyquin, and they must be adopted together, so there is a discounted rate to adopt them both. They are both fine living with other cats but have not been tried with dogs.
Cuddles is a healthy young cat who has been desexed, microchipped (microchip # 95301000296797), vaccinated, wormed and flea treated. She's ready to start her new life with you right now!
