Meet Miss Maple

Please meet little Miss Maple. She came into care with a painful glaucoma and has had a bit of a rough start to life. Once her eye had been removed she learnt how to purr, make biscuits and play with her siblings as she healed.

Maple is very affectionate and has the softest, fluffiest fur. She enjoys playing, especially chasing a teaser. Having only one eye hasn't held her back at all. Miss Maple plays hard and then she sleeps hard. She likes to fall asleep in a warm lap and enjoys handfed treats. She gets along with all foster kittens, adult cats, dogs and rabbit. Maple would make a wonderful addition to most families.

Since she has been in care with her two sisters (Maggie and Harriet) and three other foster kittens, as well as the resident dogs at her foster home, Miss Maple would do well in a family that has some feline or canine friends to play with and doze on. If you don’t already have a pet of your own, it would be ideal if one of her sisters were adopted with her.

Miss Maple is microchipped and vaccinated; she will be desexed next week, and available for adoption when she recovers, probably around 28 April.

We are taking enquiries for Miss Maple now, with a view to arranging any meet and greets when appropriate. She may be put on hold in the meantime in the event if a love match.

NOTE: All visits will be by appointment, and in accordance with prevailing social distancing protocols; currently one person at a time.

Her operation has been an expensive one and the cost of Miss Maple's treatment requires additional sponsorship. Her Glaucoma surgery involved removing her massive eye and the vet bill is expected to be a few hundred dollars. Will update with a figure once we have received the invoice. The operation has been a success and she is much happier and purring without the eye

Miss Maple was adopted on 18 April 2020 after 1 month in foster care
