Bluebell's new home

We took Bluebell in when her owner sadly passed away. Shortly after, we found this gentle girl a new home where she enjoys the happy life her original owner wanted for her.

We treat each cat in our care as an individual and will be there for your cat for as long as it takes to find them their perfect new home.
