|Rescued||16 Dec, 2022|
|Date of Birth*||05 Dec, 2020|
|Nicknames||MissMolly, MsMoo, OiYou|
Molly is a plush longhaired marbled golden tabby with the floofiest tail. She has a cute tummy of medium to long hair – dotted&spotted which begs finger toofling in. Golden eyes, the longest white whiskers and perky ears taking in all sounds, including the latches of doors.
Known History & Temperament
Molly came into rescue after her owner became hospitalised. Initially, she was only going to be short term care, however she now needs a new home.
In the short time she has been in foster care, we have learned that she can be a chilled and placid puss, with bouts of ‘bounce off the wall’ parkour crazy (oops, that’s fly chasing).
We have also found she is also quite adept at slipping out of doors, having dashed outside twice in her first month of care. We are sure she can hear door latches in her sleep… she can go from sleeping in rear room to front door at the speed of teleportation. Thus, the advantage of a secure netted enclosure as well as double proofed door/window fixtures will help keep her inside. (it’s possible in her past – she had access to a garden, or was allowed to wander because when she does pop out, she doesn’t run, but tries to assess garden spots and can be coaxed back to carers. )
- Totally chill, not bovvered
- Chill with a hint of crazy!
- Loves snuggle time, but also ‘alone’ time
- Affectionate as heck – prefers cuddles to anything else
- Crazy and entertaining – a laugh a minute!
Interests and Hobbies
When she’s not zooming up and down the house popping from room to room, Molly is addicted to watching CatTV soapies featuring avian stars; ravens and crows – with guest appearances from larks and WillyWags… She will deftly shimmy up the bed headboard and observe birds taking advantage of the allotted watering days and the many baths/hydro stations in the garden. For human interaction, she plays with laser pointers for short duration…
When MissMolly is in a lazy mood, she will curl up in a corner of the house and snooze away, or at night – will sleep on the bed at carer/owners legside. When she is wandering aimlessly, she can be called (to receive cuddles) by hand drumming a near surface. This is a skill the current male teendult has mastered, and makes it work to his advantage.
Over her short time in care, it has become strongly evident that Molly does not like other cats. While yes, there are periods of ‘truce’, and calm – there are many times she will target the other felines of the house – both the friendly&receptive as well as the shy& reclusive. When she is in segregation (the teendult’s room) she will hurl herself with hostility at the glass door separation if she sees one of them on the other side…
Molly would best be suited to a very secure enclosure managed home given her inclination to explore “the territories”.
She is a people’s cat and very fondly looked upon by all who come to know her, and enjoys company, yes maybe even supervised children. (she can spit/swipe if picked up incorrectly). Conversely – although she has been in care for the summer holidays, and in that time almost always had human company; her carers feel that given her ability to self soothe she would also suit families that work/participate in life fulltime out of the house.
As long as she has access to ‘anytime’ dry kibble, Molly is not demanding of food or feeding regularity – so that working back late meeting/kids extra curricular event won’t bother her. Molly enjoys drinking from her bubble filter fountain water bowl and even at times has a pawdab to play with it.
