The Oldest Rescue Cat in Britain That Nobody Wants

228

She is 19 years old and is one of the oldest rescue cats in Britain, but Pops the calico still hasn’t given up on her dreams of finding her forever home. She’s been difficult to adopt out because of her eyes.

“Her appearance isn’t as favorable as some of the younger kittens. I think people are put off (by her) eyes or how frail she is.” Belinda Dark of Cats Protection League said. (Western Daily Press)

Just two months ago, Pops was found stumbling by the side of the road. A good Samaritan found her and immediately rushed her to the vets.

She has some trouble walking and is blind in both eyes, but Pops is a sweet girl with just so much love to give.

“It would be lovely to see her go to a loving family. We think she may have been abandoned after an elderly owner became unable to look after her.”

“She was very confused when she came to us, her sight is very poor and she is a weak old cat but she loves being close to you and being petted – she’s incredibly friendly and doing well for her age.

Pops is certainly the oldest cat we are aware of in our care. We’ve had a 14 year old before but never one as old as her.”

“Pops is a loving, adorable cat who loves to be petted. If only cats could talk I feel Pops probably has a very sad story to tell – it would be lovely to give her the happy ending she deserves.”

Good news/ Update: Pops has been adopted!!

The difference between Pops living her final days in a shelter or living them out in a loving home … just might be YOU!

Pops was found dazed and stumbling by the side of the road in May. She was rushed to the vets by a concerned member of the public only to be told she was simply an old lady who was suffering with her sight. The senior cat has slightly matted ginger fur, struggles to walk and is almost blind in both eyes. It is thought her owner may have been an elderly person who passed away - with family members forgetting about Pops.
