Honey

 Honey is a sweet little Tortie girl approx 8yrs young.  We are not 100% sure of her background but we beleive she was left behind when an elderly owner died or went into care. She was constantly meowing at the door of the property when the new people moved in.   They have allowed Honey into the house so she is out of the cold but cannot keep her due to one of the children being allergic.  She has already visited our vets and been flea treated and wormed and because she was eating a lot but still very thin we had her bloods tested. It confirmed as suspected that she had an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism) and therefore will need medication to regulate this for the rest of her life.  Cats can live happily and comfortably with hyperthyroidism and its a very common complain in older cats, but it does need that little extra commitment from the new owner to make sure she has her daily medication and nornally 3 monthly blood tests. If she is rehomed locally to the branch we would support with these costs but if she is rehomed outside our area this is something her new owners would need to be prepared for.  She is due to come into care in approx 1 weeks time when we have space so will have more details on her temperament then - but we are lead to believe she is just a sweet and quiet little girl who really isn'tany trouble.  Honey would need to be an only cat in either a quiet adult only household or with older secondary school children

We have included a video of Honey BUT we need to point out that the collar she is wearing (which she came into care with) has now been removed as we do NOT agree with the use of any collars unless they are the safety release kind) ...but we wanted for you to see how lovely she is in the meantime until we can get our own video taken :-)
