An Appeal fit for a Queen...
This is a special appeal for an especially special feline, Queenie, a scaredy cat who has been in our care for a little under a month now, but who is in need of quite a particular new home. This right royal feline is asking for just a brief moment of your time.
At only a year old, Queenie has spent roughly half her life straying amidst building sites, it is therefore no surprise whatsoever that her social skills are somewhat undeveloped and that she is less than accustomed to human contact. A consequence of her rough upbringing is that she is perhaps ill suited to a conventional, urban homestead, especially one where she would be expected to be handled and cuddled a lot - she much prefers to be left to her own devices. Her life so far has certainly not been as regal as her name may suggest.
Queenie is quite a special case, in so far as her ideal home is concerned. Were we to handpick a perfect environment for her it would be in a rural or peri-urban area where she could have plenty of space in which to roam and be free to come and go as she pleased. Obviously, perfection is very difficult to achieve but if anyone feels that they could offer a lifestyle broadly similar to the one outlined above, and happen to be looking for a timid, yet lovely, young cat then Queenie could prove an excellent addition to the household. She would be suitable in a home with older children, and would perhaps be alright around existing animals.
Are you the special someone who can give this gorgeous girl just what she needs, a life of joyous freedom? Though outwardly she’s a timid, young lady, inside her beats the heart of a hunter; a hunter who yearns to feel the grasses between her toes, to rest contentedly in the shade of an overhanging oak tree, to live life at its most real. Though this isn’t to suggest she doesn’t enjoy some of the amenities on offer from domestic life, she will come for food and, in time, we’re sure she will be happy to be around people whom she knows and can trust. She needs you, and we’re positive that she will provide you with years of enjoyment and pleasure, as long as you don’t expect her to be a typical lap cat, can you save our Queenie?
