Britain Oldest Rescue Cat Can’t Find a Home

Pops the calico is 19 years old, one of Britain’s oldest rescue cats, is still looking for a place to call home. She’s struggling to find a home because of her eyes.

See SWNS story SWCAT;  Britain’s oldest rescue cat is struggling to find a home with potential suitors put off the 19-YEAR-OLD by its terrifying eyes. Pops was found dazed and stumbling by the side of the road in May. She was rushed to the vets by a concerned member of the public only to be told she was simply an old lady who was suffering with her sight. The senior cat has slightly matted ginger fur, struggles to walk and is almost blind in both eyes. It is thought her owner may have been an elderly person who passed away - with family members forgetting about Pops.

She has some trouble walking and is blind in both eyes, but Pops is a sweet girl with a lot of love to give.

“It would be lovely to see her go to a loving family. We think she may have been abandoned after an elderly owner became unable to look after her.”

“She was very confused when she came to us, her sight is very poor and she is a weak old cat but she loves being close to you and being petted – she’s incredibly friendly and doing well for her age.

Pops is certainly the oldest cat we are aware of in our care. We’ve had a 14 year old before but never one as old as her.”

We think Pops is beautiful and her eyes only make her that much more to love. Share this story and help Pops find a loving home!
