More about Me
7th March 2018. We are absolutely delighted to say that Sherry went to her forever home today.
Sherry is a senior lady, who is 13 years young. Sherry was homed by us as a kitten but very sadly, she has come back to us through no fault of her own. Sherry is used to a quiet home. She enjoys spending time on the sofa being petted but also likes to explore outdoors so would prefer a home that can offer indoor and outdoor access. We would prefer a secure area where she could get a bit of fresh air.
Sherry has not lived with other cats or dogs and would be happier as an only pet. She could live with someone with visiting children but may be happier in a generally adult only home. If you feel that Sherry is the cat for you, please get in touch as she deserves a sofa to call her own.
February 2018 update:
Sherry has gone into a temporary foster home for a month to help us evaluate how she behaves in a home environment. It is proving to be a very positive experience for Sherry. Here is what her foster carer has told us after 1 week:
Sherry is doing really well and has settled quickly into a routine. She is very easy going and happy to be around us but also content to be on her own. When we come in from work, she is happy to see us. She is getting quite playful now and will engage in some chasing games with her toys. She has also started having a few minutes of madly running around the house, which is very amusing. She looks quite agile at times.
Sherry likes to go into the yard but comes in after 5 minutes. She seems quite relaxed about everything, (the washing machine being switched on, the TV, the small cordless vacuum cleaner, the dogs next door barking.) Nothing really scares her that much although if she is in the yard and someone next door bangs their yard gate shut, she scarpers back in the house.
As regards to her being an indoor cat I think she would be fine because she doesn't meow to go out, she just looks at the closed cat flap but if I call her she quickly forgets about going out. I just like to let her out because it makes life a bit more interesting for her. We do have a high wall and it is secure.
She sits with us on the sofa on an evening and likes to sit really close to you. You can stroke her for hours and she nods off and looks so relaxed and content. We think she is special and very beautiful. (the 2 bottom photos are of Sherry in her foster home)
WE HAVE MORE CATS IN NEED
On average, we have 400 animals come into our shelter every year. Please take a look at some of our cats looking for loving homes and see if you can find a friend for life. Where appropriate, all of our animals are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered. We also give each animal a behavioural assessment to identify their needs and help you find your perfect companion.
