Perfume is - well, to be honest, probably the ugliest little cat we have ever had.
Her nickname here is "Badly Drawn Cat" because of the impression she gives of having been assembled from a bunch of leftovers.
... possibly from a sausage factory.
But she is a LOVEABLE little thing - very affectionate, happy to curl up on a desk and watch you work, and generally seems to GIVE as much love as she takes.
She is even-tempered, loves to be stroked and is playful.
She is very attached to her friend, Crayon
, also of this parish... (Ideally, we would love to rehome them together. )
We think she would get on fine with other cats.
She is litter trained, and very clean. She has adapted to life indoors very well indeed.
She was a rescue: on the street, with a terrible case of mange. Very painful, but very treatable.
Initially the plan was to TNR her (trap, treat, neuter and release). We thought we would have to keep her for about a week.
But when she licked my hand I realised she was socialised.
A quick blood-test came back negative...
... the nights were freezing and the place she had come from was unsafe, even by the standards of the street.
All in all, I hadn't the heart to put her back.
Note: because the original plan was to TNR her, she has a tiny "v" out of one of her ears and she is not yet chipped. She has been neutered, blood tested and vaccinated.
