About Shyla

Breed: Domestic Shorthair crossbreed Age: 1 year (approx) Sex: Male

This gorgeous mischief maker is James Dean; he really is a rebel without a cause! He has come into our care after his owner had to downsize and James just could not cope with living in a flat. He then went live with a family member and their young cat, where they discovered he really does not like other cats, so now he is with us. We too have learnt he doesn’t like cats and is desperately frustrated about not being able to go outside and play. The poor lad is desperate to find a forever home so he can get back to doing what he loves the most – playing outdoors. 


James adores attention and is happy to sit by your side whilst you work, he is also very good at walking on your keyboard, but generally will sit at the side of you. He loves a head rub, and will come to you for affection, but does let you know when he has had enough. He likes to ‘steal’ water from a drinking glass and lick the water from his paw – it is so cute to watch! He loves to chase after balls and screwed up pieces of paper, playing in cardboard boxes and doing zoomies. When he has worn himself out and knead a comfy fleece until it is just right and then settle down for a snooze.


This frustrated hunter certainly needs a good sized home to run off his energy until he can go out to play (after 4-6 weeks of arrival once settled). Any potential adopter needs to be aware he needs time putting into him and patience until he can go out to play. He needs to be the only cat and live in a neighbourhood where there are plenty of trees to climb and gardens to explore. If you have the purrfect home for this rebel, then please complete the application for and email it to  NB he needs to return on 11th March for his second vaccination to complete his primary course.
