Nice little mover, no previous owner, needs a new home

Nice little mover, no previous owner, needs a new home

A stray cat who was found sleeping in a car is looking for a new home.

The cat - now named Mini after the type of car she was discovered in – is being cared for at Cats Protection’s Evesham Adoption Centre.

“Mini was very thin and malnourished when she arrived. She had fleas and ticks and wasn’t in great condition,” said Cats Protection Cat Care Assistant Louise Hill.

“She was also anaemic and suffering from stomatitis which meant she had a sore mouth and so hadn’t been able to eat properly.

“Mini’s health issues are now much better and she’s on long-term medication to keep her mouth comfortable – so she’s ready to go to her forever home!”

Mini, thought to be about 10-years-old, has been at the centre in Pitchers Hill, Wickhamford, Evesham, since Saturday 2 March 2019 and has so far been overlooked by potential adopters.

Louise said: “After years of being homeless, Mini is ready to find a family to call her own.

“She’s a lovely, friendly girl and loves to play - but she’ll let you know when she has had enough fuss!

“Her dream home would be calm, with no busy roads nearby. It would be best if any children in the house are more than 10 years old and Mini needs to be the only pet.

“She might be called Mini, but she has a really big heart and a lot of love to give.”

This year Cats Protection’s cat care assistants like Louise who help look after cats like Mini are being supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery, who have raised just over £1million for the charity to-date.
