IVY

Add to my favourites

Remove from my favourites

Ivy is a 10 year old female black cat, who is looking for a home as the only cat in the household.

She came into our care very unwell, with severe ulceration of her mouth. Ivy needed a lot of medical attention and spent a while as an inpatient at the vets.

Ivy has Calicivirus, which causes upper respiratory issues and ulceration of the mouth, among other symptoms. It is readily transmitted between cats through direct contact of saliva or nasal secretions and the sharing of bowls/litter trays etc. So she needs to be the only cat in the home.

Ivy has recovered very well, and is very affectionate, happy and otherwise well. She loves a fuss and company and will be a great companion.

Ivy's medication is simple, just a squirt on her food and she gobbles it up. She also needs bi monthly steroid injections at our vets (if fostering veterinary expenses will be covered, if adopting we can discuss on an individual basis).

If you can help Ivy find a loving foster or permanent home, please get in touch! Call 07749 175023 - Please leave your name and number if it is the answerphone and we'll get back to you.

Why I'm special

URGENT APPEAL FOR ADOPTER/FOSTER CARER- Sadly we're re-appealing for a foster for Ivy. She found a lovely home but her foster had a tragic accident and is on life support and we need to move her again. She's being visited twice a day, but she needs a person to love and look after her please read on and get in touch if you can help, and share if you can't thanks so much. She's a real lap cat and loves affection and comany
