She’s ‘Pops’, a 19-year-old calico and Britain’s oldest rescue cat. She so desperately needs a new caretaker who will love her tenderly in the last phase of her long life. She is struggling to find the right person because of her eyes. She has poor eyesight and she’s weak as an old cat might well be. But she is very friendly and loving.
She’s at Cats Protection. She looks very old, no doubt about that. I would not expect her to have that long to live to be honest but what a great opportunity for an older adopter to care for her.
Apparently she was picked up at the side of the road and taken to the local vets. Perhaps she got lost. It has been suggested that an elderly lady abandoned her as she was no longer able to look after her.
The oldest cat Cats Protection had prior to Pops was a 14-year-old. She is the oldest cat in their care.
“Pops is a loving, adorable cat who loves to be petted. If only cats could talk I feel Pops probably has a very sad story to tell – it would be lovely to give her the happy ending she deserves.” (Belinda Dark of Cats Protection)
Is there anyone out there who’d like to do something really good and adopt her? You’ll be amply rewarded emotionally. It would be true and genuine cat care for a cat in need.
