Meet Rocket! This nervous little lad has come in from a rural setting so is not used to people or a home life. He might be happiest going back to what he’s used to so a home with lots of space would be best for him. He may prefer to be more of an outdoor cat where he has the space that he needs.

If going into a regular home rather than an outdoor home, he will need a very experienced cat owner that is used to working with nervous cats as he’ll need lots of time and space to come round. If he’s pushed or overwhelmed, he may regress in his new home.

He’ll need a safe room or outdoor shelter that can be secured whilst he’s settling in to his new surroundings.

We have seen glimpses of a lovely little character behind his nervous exterior and when he thinks there’s no one around, he loves to play with feather toys! He’s also making a bit of progress with sniffing hands and eating some high value treats in front of the team. In the right home, we hope he’ll continue to make a bit of progress.

Rocket can live with adults and potentially other cats with lots of space. To stop him wandering back to his old home, he cannot be rehomed in some parts of Bath.
