Sox is an approx 10 year old female cat. We first became involved with a Sox a few years ago when she arrived as a stray in an elderly ladies garden, she had been feeding Sox and had begun to gain her trust. We took Sox in for a check up and to make sure she was neutered and returned her.
Sox is a shy cat who can be quite grumpy, she settled in with the lady who she decided to trust and lived in her house and would go out in the garden. She could be stroked but had a strong dislike of being handled so we agreed to help with any vet trips.
Unfortunately for Sox her adopted owner has recently moved into a first floor sheltered housing flat and was unable to take Sox with her. Sox has been distraught over the loss of her home and has reverted into behaving a very hostile way to us, she is just so unhappy.
Sox is seeking a patient understanding rescue minded owner who can let her be and allow her time to settle in but also accept that Sox will probably never want to be a lap cat. Sox would also like a home with a garden and a cat flap.
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.
