​Cat Looking For Home After Nobody Turned Up To Her Birthday Party

​Cat Looking For Home After Nobody Turned Up To Her Birthday Party

An unloved pet at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home is desperate to find a loving owner after nobody turned up to her birthday party, which might just be the SADDEST STORY EVER.

Monique is a two-year-old cat who has been at the home for more than three months, 'patiently awaiting her forever home'.

The Battersea website tells us she is a 'unique girl' with an 'adorable gentle nature and a lot of affection to give'.

However, despite being a gorgeous gal inside and out, Monique is feeling lonely and unloved.

The Battersea website says: "Monique loves spending time with her human friends and enjoys leaping around her pen when they play with her favourite string toy. She also loves a good head and chin rub, and will let you know just how much by purring away in delight!

"Monique longs for a home and garden of her own where she can play until her heart's content and snooze away on her new family's warm laps. Monique is looking for an enclosed garden she can access via a cat flap."

Monique has Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, a slow-acting virus that cannot be passed onto humans.

"Monique has tested positive for the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV)," Battersea explains in the online listing for Monique.

"FIV is a slow-acting virus and most cats live long, happy and healthy lives. However, in order to protect other cats and to preserve the health of the carrier, Battersea rehomes FIV+ cats to homes with cat proof gardens.

"Don't worry if your garden isn't currently 'cat-proofed' as we can offer plenty of advice. We'll also arrange for you to speak to a Battersea vet prior to rehoming."

Chrissie Grindrod, Battersea's Cattery Team Leader, said: "It's always a shame to see one of our cats be repeatedly overlooked, especially one so young and with so much to offer as a pet.

"Monique is a gentle soul who thrives with human company, whether that be playing with her favourite toys together or curling up side by side on the sofa.

"She also won't ever say no to a chin rub or two.

"Her birthday and Valentine's Day may now have passed, but it's not too late to give Monique her dream gift of a lovely new home."
