Rehoming – Profile


Lola came into our care as she was abandoned in a 5th floor flat.

Behaviour observations on site:

Initially Lola really struggled to settle in the cattery environment. She found everything incredibly overwhelming and this was evident in her behaviour. We soon realised that the biggest barrier to Lola settling was other cats. She had such a strong dislike to them that even the sound of one nearby would cause her behaviour to dramatically change and occasionally this would be redirected at us.

We quickly moved her out of the main cattery and into her own section and she’s now like a different cat. We started with a hands off approach so everything was done on Lola’s term and at a pace she felt comfortable with. Lola has now created a lovely bond with a couple of members of staff and is happy to enjoy short spells of fuss. She will even settle down on your lap for a little while, whilst gently purring. In the right home and with the right family we believe Lola will truly thrive, she has come on so well in our care and has so much love to give as long as she is fully understood.

We believe Lola lived quite a sheltered life before coming into us. She is very alert of any noises and can panic with sudden movements. She has started to show a little interest in playing with toys, she is a clever girl who enjoys activity feeders for her meals.

It is essential Lola has her own unused room to initially settle in before gradually exploring the rest of the property and eventually a fully enclosed garden. Even though she was a flat cat before, she enjoys sitting outside in the sun when there’s a gentle breeze.

Lola is looking for an adult only home where she is the only pet, it is crucial Lola is homed in a low cat population area.

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. 


Medical history:

Lola is neutered, microchipped, flea , wormed and fully vaccinated. She has a small lump on her side which a sample has been taken and sent off. The lump is a cyst and of no concern. Lola has had a spell of chronic diarrhoea, which resulted in her having her spleen removed. Lola has IBD, she is on a hypoallergenic diet to help with this which she will need to stay on. Lola 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.


Additional information:

Lola cannot be homed in Woolston and her adoption fee is £80. If you would like to make an additional donation over and above the adoption fee, this would be hugely appreciated.
