POPPYBedford & Biggleswade

Meet Poppy an affectionate mature lady, estimated to be around 10 years old, looking for a very special forever home, with a family that are understanding of her needs.

Poppy came into us having been a stray for some time and is looking for a quiet home where she will have outdoor access. Poppy is an incredibly loving girl who likes to sit on your lap and be pampered. She is also very young at heart and will often have a mad 5 minutes running around in her pen. She loves to play with string toys as well as cat nip mice and kickers.

It has been discovered that Poppy has high blood pressure. This is controlled with medication, and she will require 3 monthly checks to ensure her blood pressure is well controlled. It is important for her to maintain a good weight so feeding enrichment toys are recommended to help her become more active and eat her food more slowly.

Despite her health issues Poppy is a beautiful and loving girl who is looking for a home where she will be accepted for her.

Poppy is looking for a home with children 8 years + with no other cats or dogs. She is looking for a home away from busy roads and railways.

She is microchipped and is fully vaccinated. We suspect she is neutered but will provide a full cost neutering voucher if she turns out not to be.

Poppy will need to have a safe, secure, quiet room to start off in. A room where she can have a separate area for food and water. For a litter tray placed as far away as possible from her food and water. For somewhere to hide, access to a high spot where she can view her surroundings, a suitable place to sleep or, ideally, a choice of them, a scratching post and a few cat toys and space for her to play. She will also need a Feliway diffuser in her room, as she will likely hide away for a few days when she goes to her new home.
