Hi, I'm Meli. It means honey in Greek.


My foster mum says I'm a sociable, chatty, cuddly, head-butting fluff ball. I will acknowledge you when you enter the room, when you move, when you leave and I'll be expecting some attention and love back. 

I'd love to have someone that spends a lot of time with me but I'm equally happy to curl up on my sofa while you're away or working from home. I love cushions and blankets!

I can live with dogs and friendly cats. I may need some time to fully adapt with any kitty siblings but I can be in the same room almost straight away.

I can be uncomfortable around new people until I’m sure that they’re safe.  I lived as a stray for a while, and I know what it is like to be scared and hungry.  My new family will need to be used to having cats. and understand that I will need a little time and patience to settle in.  I prefer not to live with children, as I sometimes I like my space and don’t want to be fussed.


Will you give me a new family?
