Thelma the domestic short hair cat

Thelma is our beautiful 2-year-old domestic short hair 

Thelma is a very loving and playful cat that loves to be around her people most of the time.

When Thelma first came into the foster home, she was a little unsettled for a couple of days and wondered around meowing but once she had got used to her new environment she has settled in beautifully.

Thelma loves to play, her favourite is to play with a flirt pole with her humans rather than playing independently, although she does enjoy playing with her chase track toy on her own. Thelma is a fuss pot and loves nothing more than being the centre of attention, she is always there to greet you at the door and will roll around on the floor to take full advantage of all the strokes and enjoys having a good chit chat with her humans.

Thelma will take herself off for a snooze on the human’s bed during the day but loves a lap to lie on or to snuggle into her human’s neck in the evenings. Thelma's favourite place to snooze is her humans dressing gown which is often scrunched up into a little nest for her highness; she will lie there all night but be warned she is an early riser and when Thelma is awake everyone else should be up too. All she asks for is a quick early morning play, some attention and breakfast then she will happily go back to bed for the rest of nap time. As Thelma is in foster and cannot be provided with outdoor access at the moment, we do hope that her early morning rising will not be an issue in her adopted home as she will be able to go outside of her own accord.

Thelma was signed over to RSPCA care with skin issues that the family were unable to care for. She is currently on medication for her skin issues and is likely to need medication for the duration of her life and occasional vet visits, so it is important that a potential family are aware of this and are able to provide her with the veterinary care she requires to live a happy and healthy life.

Thelma has interacted with other cats whilst in our care however she doesn’t like it when they touch her belongings and will give them a little grumble. Due to Thelma's skin issues and needing a home that she can feel as settled as possible with minimal stressors we feel she is best suited to a quieter home where people are around often and children should be of secondary school age that are mature and cat savvy. Thelma gets overwhelmed in homes with too many people so a smaller household would be better for her.

We also believe Thelma is best suited to a home without cats and dogs, in order for her to have a predictable and calm environment.

If you think you could provide Thelma with a suitable home, please contact to request a perfect match form.
