Lovely Shelly is sadly no stranger to rescue. Originally arriving at the NAWT Berkshire centre back in October 2015, Shelly spent just over a year in their care waiting for the perfect home to come along.
As an independent cat with a lovely room of her own to enjoy and lots of people to spoil her, Shelly enjoyed her time in the rescue centre. But nothing can really compare to the security and more tranquil routine of a happy home.
On 26th November 2016 we all celebrated as Shelly finally captured the heart of a couple who couldn’t wait to take her home. Her new owners spent a few weeks visiting her, helping her to get to know them and feel comfortable with them. Shelly blossomed in their company and was soon off to enjoy her new life.
Sadly, just over 2 years later, Shelly has found herself back in rescue following an unfortunate change in her owner’s circumstances. Shelly has now reached the grand old age of 15 and is desperate to find a happy, quiet home to enjoy the rest of her days.
The NAWT Berkshire centre is a purpose-built rescue centre for elderly pets, which can offer Shelly all the care she requires and a place of shelter for as long as it takes to find her a home. However, we would always prefer an animal to have a home of their very own.
Now we are appealing once again, for an owner who can offer this gorgeous longhaired moggy a place in their heart. Could it be you?
A lady who enjoys a quiet life, Shelly is looking for a pet-free and adult only home. A little bit sassy, she enjoys a gentle fuss but only in small amounts and isn’t afraid to let you know when she’s had enough!
Despite her years, she loves a good game with her fishing rod toy, as she finds that real hunting requires a little too much effort these days. She will make a wonderful companion to an experienced owner with a good understanding of cats and their care requirements.
If Shelly is the girl for you, please do get in touch with the NAWT Berkshire centre.
