Adorable Rufus is looking for a new home
Rufus, an adorable old cat who could be made homeless soon when the council reclaims his previous owners’ bungalow, is looking for a loving home.
Jane Freeman, trustee and treasurer of The Mutts Nutts Rescue said the organisation was recently approached by Stamford resident Gloria Woolf.
“Gloria has been caring for Rufus’s elderly owner for many years,” said Jane.
“Sadly this lady has had to be moved to a nursing home and Gloria and her husband have been looking after Rufus in his current home, going in to feed him twice a day.
“He is a wonderfully affectionate old cat of 14 years.
“He is fully up to date with his vaccinations and flea and worm treatments and although he is blind in one eye, this appears to cause him no concern and he is in good health otherwise.
“Gloria would love to give Rufus a home but her elderly cat does not get on with others and so far she has not been able to find anyone who can help.
“All Rufus wants is another loving home, and Gloria approached The Mutts Nutts Rescue to ask the charity for help as she is desperately worried as to what will happen to Rufus when the home that he has known all his life is taken away.”
Jane said they were desperate to help, but their foster facility for cats was already full with other cats looking for loving homes.
“But we did say that we would do all we could to help him find a new home if Gloria can keep looking after Rufus for the time being where he is.”
Anyone who is able to help out can contact The Mutts Nutts Rescue on 01780 654072.
