The longest ever resident at Cats Protection's Glasgow centre has packed her bags!

After almost 200 days in their care, Izzy has found her forever home. The Cats Protection Scotland Cat Centre, formerly the Glasgow Adoption Centre, are delighted to have rehomed the little one who came into their care in a "sorry state".

Izzy required specialist treatment during her stay but is now starting her new life in full health thanks to the dedicated staff and volunteers at the centre.

Helyn Nichol, Deputy Centre Manager, said: “When Izzy came into our care in November she was in a sorry state.

“It was heartbreaking to see that she had been plucking out her own hair due to the stress of living with other cats.

“She also had ringworm so needed to be cared for in our isolation unit, and we fed her a special hypoallergenic diet which made a massive improvement to her skin."

With the team's incredible efforts, Izzy is back to full health and settling in with her new family, who say she has been very sociable.

Helyn continued: “Thanks to our dedicated teams, her coat and skin are now in amazing condition and she is no longer suffering.

“We’re delighted to report that after almost 200 days, she has now packed her bags and is settling very well into her forever home. Her new owners said she has been really sociable and very vocal!

"Giving cats like Izzy the love, attention, and care they desperately need brings us so much joy, but realistically this can be a costly process. We provide all our cats with food, bedding, litter trays, and enrichment, and this is before any veterinary costs.
