Downham charity's plea to find new home for lost Misty
A West Norfolk animal charity is seeking a new home for a lost cat after a public appeal to trace her former owners.
Officials from the Downham area Cats Protection Adoption Centre, based at Stow Bridge, sought to trace the owners of Misty last week, after she was discovered in Wisbech.
But although their hope had been to reunite her with her owners after a number of years, the group now says it needs to find a new home.
Centre manager Lyndsey Tempest said that, although Misty’s owners had contacted them following the appeal, a change in their circumstances meant she could no longer live with them.
She said: “Their current landlord had said they were not allowed to have a cat at the property.
“This is a scenario that Cats Protection are currently campaigning to change through their Purrfect Landlords campaign; educating tenants, landlords and housing and social authorities.”
As a result, Misty has now been signed over to the charity, who say they believe she would prefer to be the only pet in a home.
The group added: “We’ll know more when Misty has had some more time to settle, but we’re pretty convinced that she’ll make a fabulous addition to a family home.
Anyone who may be interested in offering Misty a home should phone the centre on 01366 382311.
