Kyra is about 12 years old and has had a very sad life, 8 years of which were spent living in a shed. Her owner fed her but did not allow her in the house.
When the owner died a gentleman who lived in a nearby property offered her a home but she does not like other cats and therefore did not get on with the resident cat. So once again she was "out in the cold”.
She was trapped and C.L.A.W.S. was asked to take her in. What could we do but say "Yes” even though we had to use a pen which we had reserved for another needy cat ? This meant we had to re-organise the accommodation and use a room in the house which has increased the pressure on our limited resources.
She had been deeply traumatised by her treatment and sat behind her bed in her cat cabin refusing any human contact. Then she started to peer through the cat flap and eventually ventured out into the pen itself.
t still took a while but gradually she became more confident and relaxed and started to interact with her carer.
There is still a long way to go but the signs are good.
