Nervous RSPCA cats looking for a new home

THESE four cats have one huge thing in common – all are in need of a new home and family.

Patience, Smokey, Parsley and Patch are all currently being cared for by staff at RSPCA Southridge Animal Centre in South Mimms.

Originally from a multi-cat household, Patience and Smokey are “very timid, nervous cats”.

They will require an adult home with an owner who is patient and who is at home for some of the day so they get used to being around people.

A spokeswoman for the Packhorse Lane centre told the Potters Bar Edition: “Patience and Smokey are two desperate cats in need of a special home without children.

“With time, hopefully, they will enjoy life as confident cats should.”

Seven-year-old domestic female cat Parsley, who staff believe is deaf, was found as a stray with terrible sores to her feet and a tail which was so badly injured it had to be amputated.

The spokeswoman said: “Despite her sorry past, Parsley adores people and will make someone a lovely pet.”

Patch’s owner was elderly and found it increasingly difficult to care for her nine-year-old pet, so sadly had to take her to the animal centre to be rehomed.

“Patch, a domestic shorthair, needs an experienced home preferably without children or other animals.

“She is friendly, but on her terms and needs somewhere where she will not be pulled about,” added the Southridge spokeswoman.

If you can offer any of the cats a home call the centre on 0300 123 0704.

Alternatively you can visit them at the animal care home everyday except Wednesdays from 11am until 4.15pm.
