5. Connor, Karen and Lorenzo
The RSPCA have three cats in our care who aren’t adapting well to life in the cattery. Each cat is now looking for their purrrfect forever home with someone who can give them a safe, comfortable space and plenty of patience. Their ideal owners will have experience of cats, no other pets and be adult only homes.
This is Lorenzo, since going to the Animal Centre his confidence has steadily grow. Having been found straying he is taking some time to adjust to the creature comforts of cattery life and would benefit from a home environment. Whilst in care they have seen his trust in people increase along with his confidence and know that with the right owner he will continue to develop. He needs an owner with plenty of patience who will let him adapt to his new home at his own pace. Lorenzo’s new home will ideally be adult only with no other pets.
Karen is a beautiful cat. She was brought into the centre quite nervy, and fearful of humans. Since being with the RSPCA, she's come quite far. She now enjoys taking some treats off her human pals, she is particularly partial to Dreamies and Licky-Licks. Karen is also coming around to spending some time with people, it’s believed that she has not been used to a consistent home environment. Karen would be best suited to a quiet, adult-only household. She would also benefit from being the only pet. Her new owners would have to be experienced, and understand that it will take her a while to settle into a home.
