Violet really does not like living with us and who can blame her. She was brought into us by a lady who said she had a pregnant cat in her garden. She was very grumpy when she arrived so we put her into a pen and left her to settle in. In fact, Violet was a very well-fed neutered girl and very likely to be someone’s pet. She was not chipped and nobody seemed to be looking for her, so, she is still with us.
She can be lovely but can also be grumpy and will swipe if she doesn’t want attention. She isn’t keen on other cats and she just finds life tricky. When people ring up saying they have a stray hanging around but it looks fit and healthy, I think of Violet. She possibly belonged to someone who didn’t have the Internet or use Facebook and just didn’t know how to look for their pet. We don’t like taking in cats that are probably not lost for this very reason. Violets world fell apart that day. I wish someone would give Violet a chance to get back to the life she probably used to have.
