Meet Blacky

Blacky appears to have been dumped and has had to fend for herself for a number of months.However now she is safe in foster care and is starting to enjoy the good life. Blacky was overgrooming due to stress when on the streets but she's definitely relaxing now and her hair on her tail and legs is already starting to re-grow. Blacky is quite an independent cat who likes equal time by herself and with her owner and she is fine as an indoor/outdoor cat. She is very faithful and is starting to come when you call her. During the day, she will sit outside the front door, or on the top part of the driveway and never move, just happy to take in the scenery. Blacky will need a family that is understanding that she will take little while to learn to trust them but if you are slow and gentle she is happy to sit on your lap and enjoy a scratch. She particularly likes being scratched on the back of her head. Blacky is a lovely young girl who really deserves a chance at a normal, loving, family life.

Blacky was adopted on 27 March 2011 after 5 days in foster care
