Our names are Iggy and Izzy and we need our new home
Gender: Iggy -Male, Izzy -Female
DOB: approx 7 months old
Colour: light ginger
History: surrendered into foster due to owners change in circumstances
Needs: Someone who is confident and has lots of patience to help these beautiful fur balls continue to build their confidence and trust. Daily grooming and eye cleaning. Experience with Exotic Persian’s preferable. They are a bonded pair therefore need to stay together.
Character: Izzy is the most confident, she is very gentle natured who loves to be stroked while she purrs. She has the cutest little pobbles.
Izzy will come to you for attention but is still a little nervous if you make fast movements. She is happy to be brushed but not as keen to have here eyes cleaned. Izzy looks after Iggy and comforts him Iggy is a scared little boy but often shows his playful side when you get the feather wand out, he just can’t resist and it’s lovely to see him come out of his shell. He really isn’t convinced by strokes just yet and will try to hide, but you can get some little chin tickles in which I think secretly he likes. Iggy will need a lot of patience and gentle coaxing to help him build trust and confidence.
Can I live with other cats? Yes
Can I live with other dogs? Yes, not tested but would need to be calm and slow introduction
Can I live with children? Yes, 10+ needs calm environment
