Hi everyone. My name is Soya and I was found in April when the lovely people at WAR were called out to rescue me. I had given birth to 4 babies between an extension and a fence.
Upon rescuing us, WAR discovered that sadly one baby had passed away. The other three were tangled together which resulted in one having to have both back legs partially amputated, but luckily they all thrived under my (and WAR's) special care and are happily adopted.
At the end of August, I moved in with my foster mum for some peace and quiet. Now just when things were looking good for me, I started developing sores on my ears. After some tests at the vets it was confirmed - I had skin cancer, as well as a bad skin infection on my back. After all I'd been through this seemed very cruel. But don't worry, the story gets better from here. I had surgery to remove the cancerous parts of my ears, my bloods came back clear, my infection is all cleared up, and this week I went to be spayed. The vets and team WAR think that I've made a great recovery, so I'm good to go and now it's my turn to look for that special home to call my own.
My foster mum says that I'm a sweet, loving, nervous girl who likes her routine. I love catnip, lickilix treats and meaty sticks. Some days I'll follow you round for most of the day to see what you're up to, other times I just like my own space. But I'll always come and meet you in the hallway when you get home. I do like to check in once or twice during the night too, say hi and have a little pillow stroke . I don't seem to know how to play and I'm not a big lap cat or a pick up cuddly cat but sometimes I'll settle down on my foster mum's lap, more often by her feet, and I'll tolerate being picked up and fussed for a little while.
However I do LOVE head, chin and ear rubs and strokes (but don't be fooled by the belly offer). And even with half my ears missing, I hope you'll agree that I'm still very pretty . My foster mum thinks that I need a quiet home with a patient and understanding person/people who will just go with my flow and understand when I want company and when I need my own space.
Given that I've had skin cancer and I'm not really interested in getting out into the outside world again; my foster mum thinks I'd be safest as an indoor cat, so no garden needed. I'm fully litter tray trained and very neat and tidy. I've been tested with other cats and I'm afraid they're not for me! So I'd like to be the only pet, and only older, quieter children please. Thanks for reading this far. If you think you can meet my requirements please do fill in an application form to apply. I look forward to hearing from you. Luffs Soya xx
