About 4061 - Maggie
💗💅🏼 MEET MAGGIE 💅🏼💗
Hello, I’m Maggie. When my Foster Mum busted me out of the pound, I was heavily pregnant, dirty and not in the best condition. One week later my four babies were born and together with my Foster Mum we raised them and they were adopted to lovely homes. Now it’s my turn to find my furever home, could it be with you?!
As time passed my very patient Foster Mum experienced more of my firsts, the first time I purred, the first time I licked food from her finger, the first time I let her pat me. I still hide in the cat cave when the house is noisy, but I’m also often found sleeping on the couch or sitting by the window watching the day go by.
Each night after dinner we have a big pat and if I’m feeling brave, I lay on my side and receive a belly rub. I’m a shy, quiet lady who loves nothing more than to sleep the day away. Naps are the best, especially in my fluffy cat bed.
I’m still learning to trust my human family. It’s taken me a while to let down my walls and my Foster Mum has been very patient giving me time to accept this new way of life, I mean, who wouldn’t love fresh food and water, clean litter trays and fluffy warm bed? It’s just, I’ve been an independent lady my whole life until now and this is a very new way of life for me!
Companions (Children, Cats & Dogs)
I currently live with a family that have older kids, they can be noisy, and two dogs. I’m curious of them both, but when I first arrived in care I was a protective Mumma and I may not have been nicest to them. The dogs are still a little scared of me, but I think with a slow introduction I might like some company.
One of the dogs has been brave and we have sniffed noses and the boy (12yrs) likes to come and read to me. My Foster Mum has taught him to let me sniff his hand first and if I’m in the right mood I’ll lean in for a pat, and if not I look away and the boy knows I’m not up for a pat at that time.
I have not yet been tested with other cats, so it is uncertain how I would be. But I think with the correct slow introductions, I could like the company of a calm, gentle feline friend.
Likes / Dislikes
Sometimes loud noises or fast movements startle me and I’ll let out a hiss or a quick swipe but these moments are becoming less and less.
There is nothing better than a scratch on the back of my neck! But geeez, why did I wait so long? My Foster Mum knows where to find that spot - just near my shoulders, it gets me purring straight away. In the evening I’ll sit and wait for dinner to be served and once everyone is in bed I’ll do a bit of exploring of the house and see if I can find any new balls.
Lately, I’m almost always up for a scratch, even if I’m sleepy I’ll still purr and enjoy the love. I have to say, I’m quite enjoying the life of living indoors and would love to keep it that way!
My PURR-fect home would be a quiet, safe place where I can continue to indulge in the ways of an indoor cat. I’m a pretty low maintenance kinda girl, I like to sleep most of the day away, I might get up occasionally and change beds but lazy days are the best.
