Lovely Nellie arrived with us as a stray. She’s come a long way since then. Initially she climbed up on a high shelf and was reluctant to come down other than for a quick snack. Over the few weeks she’s been here she’s gained lots in confidence and now loves fuss and attention …. to the point that she was rolling around wanting loves this weekend when our vet nurse was taking out the stitches from her spay op.
She’s quite a vocal cat. which is heart breaking sometimes here in rescue as she cries when she’s lonely. Beyond that though she loves to communicate and and makes lots of happy noises of appreciation when she’s being fussed … as well as purring loads of course. In a home where she was loved and part of the family I think she’d really blossom …. and the crying with loneliness would become a distant memory.
She’s been health checked by our vets and is fine. She’s also been spayed, vaccinated and microchipped, and obviously fleaed and wormed. The vet has given an approximate age of 4-5 years. It’s not easy to know once a cat is full grown, especially if she’s had a rough life so far – she may be a little younger or a bit older.
Nellie will need to stay indoors initially in her new home, but after that would like a safe garden to explore. We always recommend that cats be kept indoors overnight though.
We always homecheck prior to adoption and ask a minimum adoption donation of £70 for a neutered adult cat. There’s more about our adoption process here: http://www.8livescatrescue.org/adoption-process.html and you’ll probably find more photos and stories about her here: https://8livescatrescue.wordpress.com/ and here: https://www.facebook.com/8Lives/
