SPECIAL APPEAL for an extra special home!!
Whenever we rehome a cat/kitten from our branch we always hope that they will go on to leave a lovely and blessed life - this is why this post is so sad to write :-(
Deliliah and Sally were adopted from our branch as kittens back in 2013. They were quite shy when they came into care having not had a good start in life and were still quite timid when they went to their new home.
The people who had them wanted to help two kittens that would probably otherwise be overlooked, however 5 years down the line they feel, by their own admission, that they have not been able to give them the life they had hoped and feel that now , for the benefit of the cats they need to ask for help to find them a new home
Please read the post fully to see if you think you might be able to offer them the home they need.
Delilah is the more confdent of the two and does enjoy a fuss but is easily spooked if Sally is spooked - Sally has always remained quite timid and worried by anything new. So much so that with a young child in the house they have taken to living outdoors and really dont want to come into their own home anymore :-( Their owner has bought them a shelter but they refuse to use it and would rather get wet and sleep under the bushes which as you can imagine is heartbreaking for all concerned to see. Sally also seems to have an inexplicable fear of men.
Dont get me wrong shes a nice cat and can be stroked if she feels comfortable and has a bond with someone but she is going to need time and more importantly patience.
So what sort of home are we looking for??
Ideally we are looking for a single lady who lives a quiet and calm life with no children or other animals. They will be worried by moving to a new home and therefore ideally a home where they can be initially set up in a spare room until they gain their confidence, and they will need to be kept in for a number of weeks until the bond between cats and new owner has been formed. Once that has happened then access via a cat flap to a safe garden would be ideal.
My heart if breaking for these tow lovely cats and we are really hoping we can find them the perfect home that they will feel settled and happy in. They are lovely cats just shy and nervous. If you think you have the perfect home for them please complete our adoption enquiry form and someone will be in contact. Many thanks
