Rita came in as an injured stray and was found with an open abscess which vets believe was from a cat bite. After treatment, her wound fully healed so she is now on the search to find a loving home. We are unsure of how long Rita had been living as a stray but from seeing her interact with people, it is evident that she has not experienced much positive interactions with people in her time. Although she’s begun to trust the staff and is much braver since arriving, Rita is still a quiet lady who can be shy and nervous when meeting new faces. Over time, she’s gradually become more comfortable in her surroundings and you can see a different affectionate side to her when she is being groomed with a soft brush which she really enjoys. Rita is very hand shy though and she will tell you when she is not happy or caught off guard as she is still easily spooked and can still be unsure how to react in some situations. Rita would benefit from being rehomed to a quieter adult only household with experienced cat owners where she can come around slowly in her own time as we think she may take time to settle in and may hide for a few days. All Rita needs is lots of love and support to help her true personality show and we are sure once Rita gains more confidence she will make a lovely pet as she really has so much potential.
