Hope's story is one of an amazing fighting spirit.
This little beauty came to us as a tiny, very sick, malnourished kitten who was suffering from a very nasty case of cat flu and a badly ulcerated eye. Hope and her sister were found outside by a kind man who immediately took them to the vets. Sadly, Hope's sister didn’t make it and it was touch-and-go for Hope for a long time - she was so poorly at first and had two relapses when a small kitten. But this little girl had the most tremendous fighting spirt and everyday we “hoped” (hence her name) that she would pull through.
But just look at her now! Hope is now around 5 months old, fully recovered and, amazingly, her eye is now completely healed and unimpaired (as a cat who has recovered from cat flu, there's a small possibility of minor complications in later life).
Hope has wasted no time in catching up for lost “kitten” time as she is incredibly playful, has lots of energy and runs around making chirpy sounds with her tail curled back towards her ears! Hope is confident and sociable and has the most adorable character with some interesting quirks. Every morning, Hope waits for her fosterer to make his breakfast toast, then tries to steal it from his plate! She is quite food driven (maybe due to her poor start in life) and will actively look for food, despite being very well fed. Her hobbies include sitting on Sudoku puzzles, flicking jigsaw pieces on the floor and watching wildlife programmes up close!
We are looking for a very special home for this little girl. One who will indulge her quirky behaviours and offer a calm household (adults-only or one with only secondary-school-age children - and no other pets). We also want to home Hope locally, within 30 mins car travel of either Crewe or Nantwich.
If you can give Hope the loving home that she has fought for, you will be rewarded with a sweet, cheeky, determined little cat who has a terrific inner strength. Hope will thank you many times over with cuddles, cat love - and a lap covered in fur! Please call 01270 811 013.
