About Me:

Hi, I'm Earl Grey!

I was a stray cat that hung around North Arm Farm in Pemberton.

I had been at WAG for a little while and was still very nervous of the staff and volunteers. They were all really nice and respected my space, they even read to me. But I have been a feral cat for most of my life and staff weren't sure if I would ever warm up to people. I mostly hid, and would often hiss when people were in my space.

I have recently moved into an amazing foster home and have made leaps in progress, staff are so impressed! I was brought to a foster home with another WAG kitten, Pickles. At first my foster mom tried to keep us in separate rooms, just to be safe, but I was meowing at the door to try to see him. She let us meet and we have been best buds ever since. He is my tiny orange shadow, following me everywhere I go!

I have loved having a whole house to explore! I have been warming up to the humans here, even seeking out affection. I love getting scratches by my foster mom, and love to sleep nearby to wherever she is. I am so happy here I have been purring whenever I get cuddles, who knew a home could be so enjoyable?

I can still be a bit nervous and spook easily if I get uncomfortable, but my foster home has given me lots of space and the opportunity for me to go at my own pace. I am looking for a family that understands that I need a bit of extra time and space before I feel at home.

The changes I have made in just one week of living in a foster home are so incredible. The staff at WAG know that whoever ends up adopting me will have a loyal and affectionate companion. I can't wait to find a home of my own that will keep me safe and loved, could you be my purrfect match?

Feral cats take a lot of time and patience if you can please consider donating to Earl Grey's care.
