Cat Left Behind When Her Family Moved Has Waited 200 Days For A Home

“She just needs a family who will love her.”

Shortly after a family moved into their new home, they started hearing frequent meowing coming from the front door. They quickly discovered a very skinny, confused cat — and realized she had likely belonged to the family who had lived there before.

Since the poor cat, later named Honey, had been left behind when her family moved away, the people who found her contacted the RSPCA in hopes that it could help. The RSPCA agreed to take her in, and Honey was brought to its Stourbridge and District shelter. After a few routine blood tests, it was discovered that Honey was suffering from hyperthyroidism, which explained why she was so skinny. She was immediately put on medication and is doing much better, and all she needs now is a forever family to love her. 

Honey has been at the shelter since February — and unfortunately, no one has expressed any interest in adopting her.

“Honey has been in foster care now for over 200 days and has watched all our other cats go off to their new homes and start their new lives — she wonders why no one wants her and is now starting to become stressed and bored which is beginning to affect her mental and physical well-being,” Heather Cain, chairman for the RSPCA’s Stourbridge and District shelter, said in a press release.

The 8-year-old cat is incredibly sweet, and loves playing with toys and getting some attention from the people she loves. After already being abandoned once in her life, Honey has had enough of change and uncertainty, and just wants a home where she knows she’ll be safe for the rest of her life.

Honey is available for adoption in the UK. She would prefer a quieter home with no young children, and would also prefer to be the only pet in her new family. She takes her thyroid medication with her food and never has any trouble with it, and the shelter is willing to help cover the cost of her medication for whomever ends up adopting her. Overall, Honey is low-maintenance and just wants a chance to prove what an amazing cat she is.

“Honey has blossomed into a loving girl and, despite being slightly older, she still enjoys a little play now and again and is young at heart,” Cain said. “She just needs a family who will love her.”
