Lone cat ‘longs for home’ after being returned to shelter twice | Great Britain | news

Eleven is a four-year-old cat who could live almost anywhere, says Battersea Cats and Dogs Home. The charity is appealing to the public in the hope of finding him a loving new home as “nobody seems to want him”.

In her picture on Battersea Cats and Dogs Home’s website, Eleven looks lovingly straight into the camera, her gorgeous white paws firmly planted on the ground.

A spokesperson for the Animal House said: “Eleven has been with us at Battersea since April. He ended up in two new homes for a short time, but was returned after a few days because the homes didn’t suit his lifestyle. He’s a beautiful cat who likes commotion but is very anxious about change.”

However, Eleven “needs her space when she settles in so she can hiss and slide if she’s pushed into interactions she’s not ready for.”

Speaking to MyLondon: the speaker continued. “He expects respect, but when it’s given, he’ll reward you with a lot of love. He is a super smart cat who enjoys learning and he will sit on command (for a treat of course).

“Potential new owners should speak to a vet before returning her due to her medical history, but she currently needs no treatment and is still an active and playful girl. She is looking for a female-only household because she feels less comfortable around men.

“Because he likes his space, he will need a cat flap in his new home so he can come and go as he pleases. She is looking for an understanding home that will give her time and space to settle in as she will. A great addition to the home.”

According to Pet Keen, it is estimated that there are over 100 million animals in the UK. The number of pets in this country has also increased by 15 million in the last decade.

The website also says it is worrying that around 2.7 million animals enter UK animal shelters every year. 1.2 million of them are cats, 664,000 are dogs, 184,000 are other animals (fish, small mammals, etc.).
