Cats Protection’s Anglia Coastal Branch is hoping that 2020 will be the year poor Tulip the cat’s luck changes.
The eight-year-old torbie – a beautiful blend of tortoiseshell and tabby – has been in the branch’s care for more than three months, waiting patiently for a new home of her own.
Despite her gorgeous and unusual coat of many colours, the branch believe Tulip is being overlooked due to an old injury. Unfortunately much of her tail is missing, most likely as the result of an untreated injury and a difficult start in life that has left her cautious with strangers.
Lynne Pothecary, Publicity Officer at Anglia Coastal Branch, said: “Tulip has had a bad start in life, which saw her injured and abandoned. But while she is understandably a little unsure of new people, she soon comes around and responds to a loving touch with a warming purr.
“Tulip has stolen our hearts since being rescued from the streets. She would be happy in a home where she gets lots of fuss and a nice warm lap to sit on, but ideally without young children or pets. We are appealing to our supporters to find a place for Tulip in their heart and home”
At Christmas, the Anglia Coastal Branch clocked up an impressive milestone; 1,000 cats rehomed in just five years. That’s an annual average of 200 abandoned and stray felines rehomed since 2015.
Now the branch hopes that Tulip can be one of its first success stories of the New Year.
Tulip is now in the care if our North London Adoption Centre. If you can give her a home, please contact them on
