Mrs Walsh (mother of the Goonies) has had a rough start to life. Born on the streets herself in an area where cats are often overlooked, she went on to have multiple litters of kittens, until a lovely lady called us for help.
In the lady’s garden were Mrs Walsh, a kitten from the last litter who was 3-4 months old (Bobby), and another litter who were just a couple of weeks old, living in a damp outhouse, full of junk, broken glass, rubbish and plaster dust. Mrs Walsh and Bobby were too scared of us humans to be caught by hand, so a trap was needed. After a week, we had Mrs Walsh, Bobby and the four kittens in our care! Hoorah!
Now, all of Mrs Walsh’s kittens are old enough for rehoming and she herself is in need of a home too. This home will need to be a very special one!
Mrs Walsh will need someone who has experience with ferals and very timid cats, and someone who’s expectations aren’t too high. Mrs Walsh may never be a lap cat or a big fusspot, but we do think she deserves to have a comfortable life out of the cold and where she can be independent and do as she pleases!
Mrs Walsh has been with us around 3 months now, and in that time hasn’t shown outwards signs of aggression, she would rather retreat away from us or hide. However lately, one of our members of staff has spent lots of time with her and is able to offer Mrs Walsh treats without her running away or hiding. She even got a hand sniff!!! We believe that every cat deserves a chance and Mrs Walsh very much so, she deserves a better life than she had, but will need someone with patience, perseverance and who won’t be offended if Mrs Walsh never sits on their knee!!
The home will need to be a quiet one with no children or other animals, and will need to be situated in a quiet area (ideally with lots of greenery around) so that Mrs Walsh can at some point enjoy being outdoors again.
Please only apply if you feel you can offer everything that Mrs Walsh needs.
