Penelope is now recovering from her special haircut, but Quinlan hopes she'll soon find a new home and be back to her luxurious, long-haired self. In the meantime, Penelope has been given a tiny, custom-fitted sweater to keep her warm.
"She's a really friendly cat who enjoys a fuss and being around people," said Quinlan. "She's a long haired Persian, so will need an owner who'll be willing to keep her coat in good condition, with regular grooming to avoid her becoming a matted moggie again!"
