About Me:

Hi, I'm Earl.

 

I have been in WAG’s care for a little while now, but am enjoying being in my foster home with one of my favourite volunteers. I take a while to warm up, and may never be a lap cat or a cat that loves visitors. I need a family that will be okay with that and not mind me needing my own space when company comes over. I might even hiss or spat if I feel like my space isn't being respected.

There’s been a lot of changes in my life recently and I would very much like to be adopted by people who understand that time and patience, combined with love and respect is very important for me.

Some recent updates from my foster family as they have gotten to know me better:

  • He has come a long way, now really likes to be pet and even brushed, on the tummy too. He could hear us in the other room and started to meow for company. He’s funny because he’ll leave the bedroom and lie in the hallway when he’s finished with us.
  • You can see how relaxed he is in our home now, but don’t let that fool you.  He purrs a lot, loves to be patted and scratched under the chin, but he’s still unsure if you move too fast and doesn’t like to be approached too much from the front (like a lot of cats).
  • We think he would prefer a home on the quiet side.
  • He loves to play with string! (and chew it)
  • He has a really big bushy tail and wonderfully long whiskers! See photos below....

My Purrrfect Match

  • will be ready for a 15+ year commitment!
  • have lots of patience while I learn to feel comfortable with my new family.
  • someone who understands that I might not want to cuddle or be touched all the time.
  • will provide lots of enrichment, scratching towers, toys, catio etc.
  • will keep my health in mind and take me into the vet for yearly checkups.
  • understand that I am still developing and my personality may change over time!
  • will keep me safe and happy, forever.

 

My Story:

I came into WAG with Chai and Masala, we were housed in a hoarding situation from a nearby town. Thankfully we found a temporary home at WAG, and am now in a patient foster home where I am loving the human company whilst recovering from my recent neuter surgery.

 

If you cannot adopt at this time, please consider making a donation to WAG. Our care will be extended and it takes lots of resources and time to help under socialized animals become confident.
