Finding Forever Homes

Morganna Finds a Home

Morganna when she first arrived at the sanctuaryWhen an extremely fluffy and friendly cat arrived at our Church Knowle rescue centre earlier this year, staff were instantly smitten. Morganna had plenty of character and craved attention from staff and volunteers who loved making a fuss of her.

Although plenty of people were interested in adopting Morganna, unfortunately she couldn’t go to a new home straight away. Our vet diagnosed Morganna with a severe infection in both her ears caused by chronic ear mites. She needed two major operations to remove both of her ear canals. Without them, the future looked extremely bleak for this special cat.

Morganna went under the knife and the operations went smoothly. It took a while for Morganna to recover and it was touch and go whilst staff waited for her to regain use of her eyelids. After her operations, Morganna was left completely deaf. This was a shock for her but she coped extremely well considering everything.

Morganna soon after her operation while her fur was still growing backDespite many people coming to meet Morganna, she remained overlooked in the cattery for many months. The operations had left her very slightly lop-sided and while her beautiful fur was growing back on her face, it left her looking not quite her usual self!

One day, Ingrid and Jeremy visited the cattery at Church Knowle. Unlike everybody else who had visited Morganna, they just couldn’t leave her behind and it was love at first sight. Morganna was soon ready to go to her forever home where she now goes by the name of Ruby.

She settled right in on the first night and is back to her old self ­ craving attention the whole time and snoring loudly when she sleeps! We are so grateful to Ingrid and Jeremy for giving Ruby such a wonderful home after what has been an extremely difficult year for her.

Morganna happily settled in her new homeIf you think you have room in your life for a new family member, please look at the animals on our website. We always have a large variety of dogs, cats, small animals and field animals patiently waiting for their forever homes.
