About Bow Tie
🖤 HANDSOME BOW TIE 🖤
Bow Tie is what we call a confident timid cat. He's more than happy to share his space with people as long as they don't try to pick him up or touch him too fast. BT is still learning that humans aren't all bad, and while he's not comfortable accepting pats or scratches yet, he's more than half way there. BT will let you put your hand as close as 10cm away from him, and will soon be taking food from your hands like roast chicken (and roast beef if you really want to treat him!) We expect Bow Tie to do great being passed treats and playing with laser toys or long cat wands as he becomes familiar with his surroundings. Bow Tie is a work in progress but has shown a lovely temperament since he was rescued and is very much an observer, always watching and learning about humans. He is suited to families with children over the age of 12 years, and we require those children to be present at the meet and greet to see how both Bow Tie and the children interact with each other.
“Hello. The name’s Bow Tie, but can you guess why? I come from a bit of a sketchy background, having lived on the streets of Malaga since I was a kitten. A nice man decided to start feeding my family so that we didn’t have to go hungry ever day. He even set up a little corner with a roof so our food could stay nice and dry when it was raining. Isn’t that a nice thing to do? Anyway, he asked for help wherever we could, and thankfully the Catters were able to help not just me, but my 10 family members. There are still 3 more out there, and they’re hoping to get a home for them to stay in soon. Because I grew up on the streets, I’m quite a shy boy and I’m not used to being touched. When the Catters trapped me and took me to a foster home they were able to pick me up and put me in my safety crate. I let them do that because I was confused and scared, but I’m still learning to trust them more and start to enjoy pats. I’m being fostered with other scared kitties so that makes it harder for me to trust, but I know that I will soon be enjoying people (I just need to do some further temperament checks on them first! Humans are unpredictable, wild creatures. You must exercise caution with them). So if you’d like to meet me and consider giving me a chance to shine just like me sleek, black coat, please get in touch with the Catters Crew and see what that can arrange! Bow Tie out—"
Bow Tie is still timid and uncertain when faced with new experiences and environments. We expect him to feel comfortable with children over the age of 12 years who can sit quietly and approach gently without touching until Bow Tie becomes settled in a new home. He will do great being passed treats and playing with laser toys or long cat wands. We expect a smooth transition moving to a home with other household pets with the right introductions, and we are happy to provide support during this time. For families with children 12 – 14 years, we will require them to be present at the meet and greet to see how they and Bow Tie interact with each other.
All adult cats are sent to potential new homes on a one to two week trial after an initial meet and greet before finalising adoption. While adult cats do take longer than this to settle into a new home, it allows a chance to see how the cat is coping with the new environment.

Medical Note: Bow Tie was exposed to a widespread disease commonly known as Cat Flu (Feline Herpes Virus). He has not shown any signs of ill health during time in care and may or may not be a carrier of the virus. This virus is a common respiratory disease in cats and varies in severity. The virus usually attacks the respiratory tract (nasal passages and lungs), eyes, or both. Signs of illness may or may not develop over time and veterinary treatment might be required. As usual, regular vaccinations are important to protect Bow Tie and other cats within the same living space should be up to date with vaccination.
