Rehoming – Profile


Holly came into our care after her owner died. She then went to live with her owners daughter but wasn’t happy living with children. 

Behaviour observations on site:

Poor Holly has found the cattery environment quite stressful after spending 14 years living with her owner. Her behaviour was quite unpredictable, which was also down to the fact that she is hyperthyroid and wasn’t on any medication to help control this. 

Holly has shown she’s quite an independent cat with us and is happy being in our company, but will equally take herself away for a snooze. On a couple of occasions Holly has settled on a staff members lap but isn’t happy having any contact from us. Holly will rub around us to initiate contact but doesn’t want us following through and touching her at all. 

In Holly’s previous home she was very attached to her female elderly owner who she had spent her whole life with. She would often sit on her lap and sleep with her during the night. We’re hoping that once settled in a quiet, calm and predictable home she will feel much more relaxed. Holly is actually happier being in the vet unit than with us in the cattery, we feel she just finds the cattery environment really stressful and hopefully she will thrive in a new home, although she may remain a cat that is happy with a hands off approach but having human company when she wants it. 

Holly needs to be an only pet in an adult only home. 

We reserve the right to remove a reserve at any stage of the adoption process if we believe it is in the best interest of the cat. 

Adoption fee: £80 If you would like to make an additional donation over and above the adoption fee, this would be hugely appreciated.

Medical history:

Holly is hyperthyroid and is on a low dose of medication which she eats well in her food. She will need to stay on the medication for the rest of her life and will need blood tests every 6 months to ensure the dose she’s on remains correct. In the past Holly has suffered with diarrhoea, she is currently on a few different foods which she enjoys and has helped with this. Holly has no other known medical conditions. 

4 weeks free pet insurance included with adoption.

Adopters should consider that previous medical conditions will now not be covered by insurance. Adopters are responsible for the on-going medical costs once the animal has been adopted.
