Meet Tula the cat.

"I’m Tula, a nine-year-old girl. I came to the centre as my previous owner sadly passed away.

"I’d always lived in the same home and have found it hard settling into cattery life.

"I used to spend most of the day hiding, but am now spending more time out and about.

"I can be shy with new people, but the staff and volunteers here have been spending lots of time with me to help me come out of my shell. Once I know you, I like to sit on your lap for a cuddle. I love to be groomed and my favourite treat is a Dreamie.

Watford Observer:

"I’m looking for an experienced, patient owner who will take time to get to know me and let me settle in at my own pace.

"I’ll need a quiet home with adults or families with children age 14 and over, but no other pets please as they scare me. Once I’ve settled into my new home I’d like access to the outdoors so I can sunbathe."

If you could be that special person to offer Tula a loving home, email the National Animal Welfare Trust or call 0208 950 0177 (option 2) to arrange a visit.
