Lily AThe search is on to find a new owner for a Newport cat who has been looking for a second chance of happiness following a road traffic accident.

Lily is a gorgeous semi long-haired tortoiseshell female cat, who is approximately four years of age – and keeps RSPCA staff busy with her love of affection, and toys with feathers!

She came into RSPCA care in April, with a leg injury understood to have been sustained during a road traffic accident in the Duffryn area of the city. Lily’s previous owner was unable to be located, despite a search from the charity.

Two recent operations on her left back leg have been necessary due to the extent of Lily’s injuries. After much rehabilitation and rest, she is able to bear weight on all four of her legs again.

She is an affectionate and playful cat, searching for a home where she will be the only pet, with RSPCA re-homing co-ordinators noting how affectionate Lily “craves all the attention for herself!”.

A number of cats at the Newport Animal Adoption Centre within Newport Pets at Home – where Lily is based – continue to search for the perfect forever home. The centre is based within the Mendalgief Retail Park on Docks Way.

RSPCA Cymru re-homing co-ordinator Sarah Sibley said: “We know the perfect forever home is out there for the wonderful Lily.

“She’s such an affectionate and playful cat, who has developed a real love for toys with feathers!

“Lily would suit a home where she is the only pet, as she craves all the attention for herself! She is also a little wary of other cats and dogs.

“All of the cats at our Adoption Centre are searching for a second chance of happiness, and we’d urge anyone interested in adopting Lily to pop down to the Mendalgief Retail Park and meet her.”
