Homeless black cat in bid to find a home

A black cat being cared for by Blue Cross pet charity in Carlisle has had no interest from potential owners and has now been homeless for four times longer than other cats being cared for by the charity.

Thought to be around five-years-old, Dilys was spotted straying in a garden over several weeks and was brought to Blue Cross which has a team of volunteers locally who look after homeless cats in their own home until permanent new owners are found. She was not microchipped and no-one came forward to claim her so the search began to find her a new home.

Volunteer Joanne Park said: “We do generally find it harder to rehome black cats as other colours always seem to be more popular, but for Dilys to have been with us this long without a single spark of interest is strange. She is such a wonderful, people loving cat is a shame she isn’t able to shower her affection as much as she would like to.”

Dilys loves a cosy lap or bed by a radiator getting lots of fuss. She is looking for a home as the only cat.

For more information about Dilys and other homeless cats currently in foster care in the area visit www.bluecross.org.uk or contact the team on 0300 777 1920 or [email protected].
