A stunning midnight black feline looking for a rural or outdoor home!
Lucy was very lucky to have landed up in RSPCA care. The farmer/owner of the land where the feral cats were living, was going to kill them if they weren’t removed, so the RSPCA got involved. Before coming into our care, Lucy spent two weeks in a veterinary practice where she was neutered, had her first vaccination and was microchipped.
She tested negative for FIV/FELV; sadly, the other cat was positive and had to be put to sleep.
Lucy has been seen secretly playing with toys in the cat pen (when she thinks no one is about) so maybe there is hope for her yet!
Please click on the following link for information on the kind of homes we look for and how to contain Lucy while she settles and finds her paws:
When feral cats are re-located they should be confined to a secure indoor area such as a barn, containing bedding areas, litter trays and food and water for up to 3 weeks, whilst they acclimatise to their new environment, otherwise, they will simply run away when released. Although they will initially fear human contact, over time you should be able to earn their trust to some extent. Some feral cats may even become friendly to varying degrees.
