We are a Persian rescue but we help other pedigree cats too. Bella is a Russian Blue and both she and her brother had been badly abused. We needed a very special home for Bella where she could learn to love and trust people again. Enter Tina and Gavin to the rescue. One year on we received this lovely update from Gavin.
“Back in 2014, and with Lorraine and Barbara’s help, my Mum gave poor Bella a much-needed home. As the photo suggests, she is now completely settled and very much in charge of her new home. Having had such a traumatic start in life (she was seriously mistreated), Bella can still be a little shy and nervous around strangers (and me!), but she has completely opened up with my Mum and won’t leave her side. She’s also never wanted to go out and is more than happy in her little safe-haven, being fed and watered when ever she likes and in-between very long naps by, or literally on, the radiator. She looks like a completely different cat now, too. She has put on a bit of weight and her fur is much darker and shinier. She has become rather fussy over time, however, and my Mum’s cupboard is chock-full of different foods as she tries to work out which one Bella decides she might like each morning – so a typical cat! This is a match made in heaven and both Bella and my Mum are very happy together. Thank you so much to Lorraine, Barbara and the charity for helping my Mum and Bella out in such an amazing way. I think Bella’s adventurous commute down from London to leafy Sevenoaks on the train, with Lorraine as her guardian and protector, is a now a distant memory.”
