ADOPTED Cherry

Cherry is about 14 years old. Her owner went into a rest home and she spent a year outdoors being fed by neighbours before coming into CPL care.

Cherry is a shy but loving lap cat. A gentle soul, she is enjoying being cossetted here at the cattery.

Cherry is looking for a nice warm bed and regular meals for her twilight years. She will suit a quiet home with no small children, and after her long stay outdoors will need patient settling.

Adopting an older cat can be very rewarding and they make great companions. As they are less active they tend to spend more time indoors and are less likely to get lost or injured. They are particularly suitable for owners who are themselves less active and/or spend most of their time at home.
