My name is Teddy-Mae and I am looking for a place to call my forever home.
I originally came to Geelong Animal Rescue as a boy named Teddy, you see ginger cats are mostly male, but I am obviously very special as I am a girl. That’s where my foster mum thought the name Teddy-Mae suited me well.
I am a super affectionate cat, I love to head butt you for pats whenever I get the chance. I also love food, I mean a really, really, really love food! Breakfast and dinner time are honestly my favourite times of the day and if you’re late I’ll make sure to remind you what time it is. I usually let my foster mum know it’s food time but rubbing all my drool on her, she thinks I learnt that from my doggy foster brother. He drools all the time.
I am independent and do like to do my own thing. I don’t have much interest in toys on a string, but I love to chase ping pong balls, foil balls and bells around, hitting them with my paw as I do laps of the house. Anything that moves fast on the ground is fair game for me! My foster mum thinks it’s funny to watch me go nuts chasing various bugs around the house.
I do love to follow my foster mum around occasionally and sit next to her and watch whatever she is doing, just in case she has any food for me. And so I can get some pats!
My foster mum has been teaching me to sit before breakfast and dinner, I have nearly got it, with a bit more practice I’ll be sitting like champ in no time! But I’ll do almost anything for food!
My foster mum has also been teaching me that cat carriers aren’t scary Since coming into care I haven’t had any accidents when in one, but I don’t know how I will go on long trips. I will still need to work my way up to long trips. But short trips up to half an hour are okay now!
In my foster home I live with 2 dogs, I have no issues with them. I do like to tap their bums as they walk past me in the hallway. I would need a home with a respectable doggy friend as I don’t tolerate annoying dogs and will give them a tap on the nose to let them I know I am annoyed. I also live with 2 guinea pigs, they are boring, so I don’t pay attention to them much.
Well that’s about it, if you think I sound like the purfect kitty for you then fill in an app and come meet me!
I am litter trained, desexed, microchipped and kept up to date with my vaccinations, flea and worm
