Sometimes, when you think you’re in your ‘forever’ home, you are mistaken. I’m just over a year old, and having been lovingly looked after by my mother and placed in a home, I thought, yes! This is it! Great garden to play in, humans to love, food to eat..I had arrived. But soon it became clear that something wasn’t right. I wasn’t cared for very well, I often found myself hungry, neglected, even physically hurt. I’m not quite sure what I did to deserve that. I tried my best to purr when I saw you, rubbed my coat against you…but too often this led to my owners shouting at me, throwing things at me. It was difficult to understand the world. I just couldn’t do anything right.

Thankfully I was swept up up and away into the warm and comforting arms of an Animal Accident driver. She held me firm, assured me of her good intentions, and even gave me a few treats. This was so different from my previous experience of humans. I was and remain delighted! I’m now living in a comfortable foster home, being loved, fed, petted…cared for. My early experience with humans has not affected my outlook on life. I am a happy girl, full of love and trust. I sit looking out of the window whilst those first few months of my life fade away into obscurity. I look out the window thinking of my present and future, a   future home where I can be let out into the garden; a future home where I chase birds in the garden; a future home … which has a garden! Oops, have I not mentioned that I would love to be let outside?! Please come and visit me: I’m so loving and gentle…you’re sure not to leave my foster home empty handed!

Around 1 years old, neutered, micro-chipped, litter-trained.  She has had flea and worming treatment. All our cats are “snap” blood-tested for Felv/FIV at the Vets and found to be negative unless CLEARLY stated.
