If ever there was a cat who deserves a kind, loving and understanding home its Prin.
All we know of her background is that she was living the life of a stray cat for at least 4-5months on an industrial estate in Kingswinford, as a local lady had been taking food to her for at least that amount of time. She was presumed feral as the lady was never able to get close to her to touch her as Prin would be scared and run to a safe distance away and only come back for the food once she had backed away.
Just before Christmas though the lady spotted what she thought to be a truly awful open wound on Prins neck. She contacted us to ask if we could help with vet treatment if she was able to catch her which we agreed to and although it took a good few days the lady persevered and managed to get her to our vets..
The wound turned out to be a huge infected tumour which thankfully came off cleanly and she was able to to stitched up. She must have felt so much better for it being removed!
She is estimated to be approx 10yrs old.
She is going to need a very quiet home with a quiet and understanding owner who will be patient with her and give her time to settle in at her own pace. We dont know for sure what levels of love and affection she will progress too but we feel when there is strong bond between her and her owner it will become a very special partnership :-) . She’s clearly not feral and is just a poor little soul who fell on hard times and had to get used to trying to look after herself. She has settled and is comfortable being indoors but she is still nervous, shy and wary of people she doesnt know. If she is in her bed and is approached then she responds well to touch and seems to enjoy it.
Prin has also had full blood checked and all her vital organs are within normal range which was great news. She was slightly anaemic when she first came in. The lump was biopsied and it was cancerous but the vets removed it cleanly and were happy it had not spread elsewhere in her body. She has been with us since mid January and there are no signs of it reoccuring although we cant say 100% that it never will sadly. This combined with her scared nature means she hasnt had one enquiry in the 6 months she has been with us , which is heartbreaking as she so deserves a loving home where she can settle.
She will need to be kept in for much longer than the normal 4 weeks we recommend so you will have to be prepared to have a litter tray in the house
If you think you have the quiet and understanding home that she not just needs, but truly deserves, we would love to hear from you
