Blind golden oldie Isabella needs a new home

Isabella needs a new home

Thanet branch RSPCA is looking for a home for a blind 18-year-old cat can spend her retirement in.

Isabella  spends her days at the Thanet RSPCA reception meeting and greeting visitors and welcoming new animals to the centre.

She came into RSPCA care in April as her owner sadly passed away and although a family member took her in, unfortunately their circumstances changed unexpectedly which meant they were unable to keep Isabella  and asked the RSPCA for help.

Emily Mayer, animal care assistant at the Thanet branch, said: “At 18-years-old Isabella is in her twilight years and she is adored by everyone who meets her. She loves to be around people, being cuddled on their lap or being groomed. She is currently living in reception as she has become our unofficial greeter and she gets lots of attention there but we would really like to see her live her retirement days in a home where she can feel special every day.

“As an older cat, Isabella is blind, has high blood pressure and is on daily medication for this. However, the cost of the medication will be covered by the animal centre once she is in a new home. Ideally, we would like to find a quiet home for her but we will take it on a case by case basis, as always.

“The RSPCA never gives up on golden oldies and the Thanet branch is no exception, having recently rehomed a 12-year-old diabetic cat called Harry and a 16-year-old duo Chloe and Malibu.

“They may be older but they still have so much love to give.”
