“Sandy” UK’s most overlooked rescue cat — 4 Comments

  1. A lot of mine have been adopted sight unseen as “the oldest” or “most nervous” or “most overlooked” but with the proviso that they can adapt to other cats in the household (and all of them have). The current 3 were “owner died, no room at shelter, you’re their last hope” adopted from a friend of a former colleague via phone call.

    Given time, Sandy would probably overcome his nervousness and bond with a single person.

  2. Sandy reminds me of my girl Samirah. He’s 5. She’s 15. Otherwise they have the exact same personality: nervous because they were mistreated, not a cuddle cat, needs to be the only cat in the house but is really sweet once they settle in.


    I really hope you get the chance to help him, Michael. It takes only one photo and the right person to see it. Samirah stayed in the shelter for a year too. She was a lobby cat, and she was always passed over because she was not as outgoing as the other cats and she was waiting for her first owner to come get her. And you know what got her out? Her photo online. I saw her posing with her forepaws daintily crossed like a society matron at a tea party. I asked the photographer and she said Samirah (Cherub) posed like that all on her own. It’s a shame, people love the kittens, but not so much as the cats get older.

    I don’t have a FB page, but I have no problem posting Sandy’s photo on Twitter or Pinterest.

  3. I just posted this on my FB page. Would loyal POC readers do the same? Let’s get this boy a home! This is the wording of my post: “Why doesn’t anyone want me? I feel sad about not having a real home, and having to live in a shelter.
    I’m a good boy, and all I need is a chance to be someone’s only cat. Even though I was abused, I believe that there’s someone out there that would love me, and not hurt me. I haven’t lost hope, but it gets harder every day.”

  4. He needs to be on Facebook. There has been much success by simply posting their pictures and story. Ask everyone to like and share.

    I think it would be wonderful if you could do some photos of him, and post on your FB site. I will post and share with friends.
