Dot is a very friendly cat who was found apparently stray in very poor condition. Virtually bald, thin and flea infested this poor little cat was in urgent need of veterinary care.
Dot has been treated for fleas but her skin complaint is quite severe and it is likely that she has underlying allergies. She is currently being treated with low dose steroids to reduce inflammation and is being fed a hypoallergenic diet. Her skin has healed and her fur is gradually growing back and hopefully she can be gradually weaned off medication.
Dot is a petite very friendly cat. Our vets have estimated her to be approximately three years old. Although she has previously lived outside we think that Dot would suit an indoor only home or could be homed to a home with a garden.
Dot is not keen on olther cats and would like to be the only cat in her new home. She adores people though and willl need plenty of human attention.
Please note: We do carry out a pre-adoption home visit. This is an informal visit that takes place in your home. We provide any advice you may need about caring for and settling in new cats or kittens – incl health care, feeding, holiday arrangements, dangers in your home etc. We also look at the location of your home to assess for hazards such as easy access to busy roads or for indoor-only homes to advise on making windows or balconies safe. Our cats have varied temperaments and needs so we also discuss what ‘sort’ of cats would be suitable for you, your family, your lifestyle and your home. Once a successful home visit has been carried out you will be invited back by appointment to meet suitable cats either at our Rescue centre or at our local foster homes and choose your new feline companion(s). If you are interested in offering a home to one or more of our cats you are welcome to visit one of our Adoption Open Days prior to having a home visit but unless you have had a successful home visit you cannot choose or reserve cats at one of our Adoption Days.
