Papaya is looking for a home possibly with her sister Farkleberry or possibly another cat. She is a typical kitten that loves to play and run around. Papaya was born here so isn’t used to most houshold noises but has always had the radio on the background. She would be fine to live with children and possibly friendly dogs.

In the event that we take multiple applications for an animal to maximise our chances of finding the most suitable home, unsuccessful applicants may not be notified, but are welcome to contact us to enquire.  Good, but at the time unsuccessful, applications will be kept for 3 months in case we have any other animals that become available that may be suitable for them.  After this time, they will be shredded.
