Lucky Tink’s unhappy days are behind her, as she settles into a new home.


This little angel was found in a car park where she had obviously been trying to survive for a several days. We don’t know what happened to her Mum and siblings, as she was totally alone. It was only the kindness of a passer-by that stopped to pick her up and kept her safe overnight until we could collect her the following morning, that she was not run over.

Tink as we have called her, had not been injured luckily enough; so apart from being very thin and having terrible fleas and ear mites, she is relatively healthy. She has been treated for both and we know there will not be any on-going medical problems for those and she is now growing stronger every day.

We think she was born at the end of September, so is approx. eight weeks old. She has only been with us a very short time so we haven’t as yet seen her personality develop but we are certain she will grow into a really lovely adult cat.

She is currently being fostered with three other adult cats and one young kitten and has so far settled in well. Tink seems to be a happy little girl and is no trouble we’re told.

Tink really needs her own family soon so she can spread a bit of her special magic around her new home.

All cats will be home-checked prior to adoption. Kittens should initially be kept indoors until they are neutered at around 6 months.  Also they should have supervised and limited access at first outside and never be allowed to stay out at night, as they are vulnerable to many dangers.   Sorry but we  do not home on or near busy roads.
