Cats for adoption > Malenia


  • Age: 7 years
  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Gender: Female
  • Looking for: An understanding, adult-only home


Malenia came into our care with another cat, Rykard, but after almost two months of very little progress, we came to the decision to separate them as it was felt that they were feeding off each other’s nervousness.

While Rykard would accept some attention, Malenia would growl and hiss and this would spook him. So they have now been moved into individual pens, and both are slowly starting to adjust.

We have very little background on Malenia as she and Rykard came in from another rescue where they had been for some time. Their backstory is unknown but Malenia has a real distrust of humans.

That said, one of our staff members is making progress with her, even getting some slow blinks and having her come out to eat while she is nearby.

Malenia will be a slow-burner, requiring lots of time and patience.

We think she may do well in a home where there is another cat who can show her that humans aren't as scary as she fears.
She will be a challenge, but it will be well worth it as we believe that this girl will transform in the right home.

If you feel that you can offer her the calm and understanding that she needs, please complete our online form (link below)...
