My Husband discovered a beautiful long haired cat raking through our wheelie bin on Saturday morning. She's shockingly underweight (she's like a walking skeleton) and her coat was in a really bad state, badly matted and filthy.
Of course being the soft lump he is, My Husband brought her inside and contacted the Cat protection League who came out yesterday and took her to see the vet. Her health in general is good she just needs to have her weight built up and a good bath/groom. They estimate she's about 9-12 months. She's back here with us now because the CPL have no space or foster homes available, so we've agreed to foster her for 2 weeks while we attempt to trace an owner. If no owner's found in that time we plan to adopt her.
She has no microchip and the CPL haven't been contacted by anyone missing a cat like her. We've added her details to various lost and found registers and put posters up in local pet shops/vets. I'm not really holding out much hope though, because she's clearly not been in a home for quite some time judging by the state she was in.
She was so frightened at first and attacked us if we went near her, but 3 days on you'd never know. She follows me everywhere and just wants to sit on my knee and be cuddled constantly.
Here she is.... How could anyone not want her?
