Hairless cat given a fur chance to find another home!

EVERYONE loves a happy ending – and nobody more than the team at Woodlands Animal Sanctuary!

The team at the charity on Sandy Lane, in Holmewood, have been looking for a very specialised home for a very special moggy.

The quirkily-named Piglet, who is a sphynx, came into their care in April after a pedigree breeder found her abandoned in a box on her doorstep.

On arrival, she was exhibiting signs of cat flu, but that has now been treated and she has received her first vaccination, been spayed and microchipped.

Sally McDerby from the charity said: “As a result of a post on Facebook, the team have found her new, loving forever home - what a fabulous result! Especially because Sphynx cats need quite a lot of specialist care, to keep them happy and healthy.

“The sanctuary is very happy to have found a suitable home for her so quickly, given her requirements.

“It is also worth keeping an eye on our social media platforms for you daily dose of cuteness – because we currently have 21 kittens in our care!

“We have received numerous applications for these kittens, but they are not all ready to be rehomed just yet, and so if you are serious about welcoming a kitten into your life and your home then visit their website to complete the application form.

“Do remember though, that it is not only kittens who are looking for their second chance of a happy every after – the rescue has a number of cats who due to their age, colour, care needs, may not seem as attractive as a cute kitten – but kittens do grow up, and while many of them were born at Woodlands, or came into our care very soon after, they do not have the memory of their betrayal quite so fresh in their minds.
