Willow looks out expectantly and longingly from behind stainless steel bars. She’s been living behind bars for two years because she has special needs. She is fit and healthy but her special needs relate to her behaviour which is “strictly hands-off”. She is not feral and is described as very friendly. In fact, she seeks out human company.
However, because of her unfortunate past she tends to feel threatened quite quickly and will strike out when confronted with actions which she considers a threat including noises and unknown scents.
Willow needs to live on her own terms and does not “enjoy the company of her own species”. Therefore needs to live in a semi-feral situation, it has been decided. The RSPCA are looking for a rural home for this female cat who genuinely needs to get out of this rescue centre and start living as normally as possible.
I’m sure they have treated her with great patience, skill and kindness but they will admit that it is not a place to be for two years. If you feel that you might be able to provide Willow with a home please contact the RSPCA branch on 01905 841354 or 07484 905707 (Worcester & Mid-Worcestershire Branch, UK).
