About Echidna

Slightly timid

Mrrrrrrow! I’m Echidna, a cuddly and affectionate senior looking for my forever home to spend my golden years. It does not take long for me to get up close and personal! I am very affectionate and I love having a comfortable lap to relax on. I love to sunbathe next to my foster mom, and I love to follow her around the house just to see what she’s up to. I can be a little vocal when I ask for attention, but it’s always nice to have a conversation with my fellow human. 

I grew up in a home with over 10 cats, so I am a little cautious when it comes to introducing me to other cats in the home. Please be patient with me as it may take me some time to get used to it.

Like all humans and animals, I get allergies – and this means I am on a hypoallergenic diet that I am required to be on for life. Regular food or treats do not sit well in my stomach, so I will require hypoallergenic food and treats that are different from most cats. I am also a cancer survivor – but please don’t let that deter you! Today I am happy and healthy with the tumour removed, and very much looking forward to living out my best life. 

While I may not be as young as the other cats around me, as a senior, I hold plenty of knowledge and have stories to tell with my meows. I would love to be with a human who enjoys listening to me while cozying up on the couch.

Looking for a cuddle buddy? I’m your gal! xo Echidna
