Tortoiseshell cat waits nearly seven months for forever home

A tortoiseshell cat has been in RSPCA care for more than 200 days, waiting to find her forever home.

Honey, an eight-year old cat was taken into RSPCA care in February when she was left behind when her owners moved out.

When the new people moving into the home, they alerted the animal charity, after Honey as seen constantly meowing at the door wandering why she was shut out.

Honey has watched all the other cats got to their new home and wondered why no one has come to rehome her.

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 and 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.”

When Honey was taken into RSPCA care she was starting to look very thin and a blood test revealed she had an overactive thyroid or hyperthyroidism, so will need continued medication. The branch will help with the cost of her medication if she is rehomed within the local area.
