More about Sooty

Hello everybody,

My name is Sooty and I’m looking for a forever home with someone kind. You might think, as I do, that Sooty is a strange name for a black and white cat so I don’t really answer to it very often. My foster mum calls me Gorgeous Girl which I quite like and I think it suits me.

I’m writing directly as I am in a foster home as I didn’t like it very much in the Centre. There were other cats there and I thought that I was the only one in the world. You can’t see me easily and get to know how I live up to my Gorgeous name.

I was very shy and reclusive when I went to my foster home and spend the first few days in the airing cupboard. I did eventually make an appearance but was quite wary of people. I think that in my early days, I was a bit spikey but I’ve now settled in well and enjoy lots of attention and strokes. I like to watch tv on a lap and then follow up by sleeping on the bed at night (and during the day as well, if truth be told).

I would like an owner who is around a lot as my foster mum works from home and I do enjoy helping on the computer by sitting on the mouse mat. Well it’s a good position for strokes. I’d love to have a garden as I do spend time looking out of the window onto the outside world. I would like to form that special bond with someone kind.

Please get in touch with my friends in the Battersea Cattery if you think you might like to offer me a permanent home. Much as my foster mum loves me, she can't keep me forever!
