Cat thrown from cat carrier and abandoned looking for new home

A cat who was tipped out of a cat carrier before being abandoned in Finsbury Park is now looking for his forever home.

Seven-year old black and white cat Cloud is looking for a home at the RSPCA Southall Cattery in Hounslow. The male cat came into the charity’s care after he was abandoned in June.

A member of the public reported seeing two people walking down Goodchild Road just before midnight on June 6 before they tipped poor Cloud out of the cat carrier and left him.

Aneel Odwhani, animal care assistant at RSPCA Southall Cattery, said: “Poor Cloud was abandoned by a man and a woman in Finsbury Park earlier in the summer. Someone saw them tip Cloud out of his cat carrier and run off.

Cloud remained frozen to the spot where he had been left, he didn’t even move his head. He wasn’t injured but he was laid in the same spot for a whole hour, likely out of fear.”

He was rescued by Inspector Natalie Hill who investigated how he came to be abandoned but sadly no further detail came to light and Cloud’s owners were never found.

Aneel added: “After everything he has been through, Cloud really deserves to find his forever home. He is a sweet boy and although he can be shy at first, once he gets to know you and trusts you, he is very friendly. He loves to chat and adores neck tickles.

“We think he will need to be rehomed to an adult-only household where he can be given the time and patience, he needs to help him continue to grow in confidence. He is eager to make friends with anyone who spends a little bit of time with him and makes him feel secure.

“It’s difficult to tell if he is just a little shy in nature of if his experience has made him more nervous around people but through working with Cloud in the cattery, it’s has become quite clear that after putting some time in to get to know him, he is a sweet and loving cat who really does deserve his second chance at happiness.”
