About me

Hello, my name is Thruppence and I am 9 years old. I arrived at the centre due to my owner passing away. I am a beautiful fluffy girl, I take after my mum! Since being at the centre I have been really shut down and scared (although I still eat well!) and so I am going to need someone who will have the patience and time to spend with me whilst my confidence grows in a new environment. Once I begin to trust someone, my guard comes down and I enjoy some fuss. I will need a very quiet home, no young children that are going to scare me, or barky dogs. A friendly confident cat that can show me everythings going to be ok may be acceptable! If you can look past my nerves, maybe we can become best friends?
