What is a Spirit Cat?

Spirit Cats are very shy adult cats who struggle with changes in their lives and environment. They'll often need more time than the average cat to settle in. A bond with a Spirit Cat is a special one because it takes time, patience, and understanding to earn their trust in you.

A Spirit Cat's Ideal Home

  • They'll need a very specific setup when they arrive in their new home and plenty of time to adjust to their new family.
  • A quiet home is best for a Spirit Cat. They are not used to homes with lots of hustle and bustle, including those with young children.

What to Expect as a Spirit Cat Adopter

  • They tend to be independent but often enjoy the company of other cats.
  • They'll remain shy with new people and situations. They will likely choose to hide from visitors.
  • With time to adjust to their new home, Spirit Cats typically form a bond with 1-2 people.

If you want to make a difference in the life of a cat in need, adopt a Spirit Cat. The greatest gift you can give them is your patience and understanding.
