Tortoiseshell cat waits nearly seven months for forever home

Tortoiseshell cat waits nearly seven months for forever home


Honey, the eight-year-old cat, has watched all the other cats go to their new homes and wondered why no one has come to rehome her.


She came into RSPCA care in February this year. It is believed she was left behind when her owners moved out. When the new people moved in, they alerted the RSPCA, after Honey was seen constantly meowing at the door wondering why she was shut out in the cold.


Heather Cain, Chairman for the RSPCA Stourbridge and District branch in the West Midlands, said: “Honey has been in foster care now for over 200 days and has watched all our other cats go off to their new homes and start their new lives – she wonders why no one wants her and is now starting to become stressed and bored which is beginning to affect her mental and physical wellbeing. She will need a quiet home with no other pets or young children.


“Honey has blossomed into a loving girl and despite being slightly older she still enjoys a little play now and again and is young at heart. She just needs a family who will love her.”


Honey was brought into RSPCA care as she was starting to look very thin. A blood test revealed she had an overactive thyroid or hyperthyroidism so she will need continued medication and the branch can help with the cost of this if she is rehomed within the local area. This is easy to manage and she takes medication in liquid form on her food.


She is also currently on a sensitivity diet as the stress of the cattery and being confined in a foster home has upset her stomach – but this is already improving and the staff are confident this will clear up when she is settled and can go outside and explore again.
