An RSPCA cattery is looking to find a home for a long-stay cat who has been looking for a new home for six months.

Five-year-old Snowy was taken into RSPCA Stapeley Grange by an inspector in January after she was found as a stray.

Since then, she has seen numerous cats rehomed before her – but no one has come forward to show any interest in her.

Now the centre is making a special appeal for someone to adopt sweet Snowy and give her a loving home she deserves.

It is thought that Snowy had a tough life before coming to Stapeley and it is likely she has had lots of kittens.

Lee Stewart, manager at Stapeley Grange, said: “Originally we had been looking to foster Snowy out, to see whether a less stressful, home, environment would help her.

“While we were searching for a foster home, the cattery team spent lots of time with Snowy. She was also moved to the main public area of the cattery to see whether she may be less stressed in a more public area. Thanks to their hard work and that she has had time to settle  she now users her litter tray and is ready to find the loving new home she deserves.

“The cattery team pride themselves on being able to rehome difficult cats, those with quirky issues or conditions, so are really pleased that their perseverance has been rewarded.”

However, despite all the hard work from staff to find her a home, no one has shown any interest in her.

Snowy is a very playful kitty and has made fantastic progress during her stay at Stapeley but she will need an experienced cat owner who has the time and patience to help her gain confidence and learn to love and trust humans.

“We’d really like to find her a new home as soon as possible as she has been with us for six months now,” added Lee.

If you are interested in adopting Snowy, you can pop into the cattery, in London Road, Nantwich. The cattery is open 10.30am to 4pm every day except Monday.

This year is a big year for Stapeley Grange, as it’s the centre’s 25th anniversary. Over this time the team will have helped over 130,000 wild, domestic and exotic animals.
