Pretty Vera was brought to Sheffield Animal Centre this summer - and is now looking for a family give her the future she deserves.
The four-year-old short-haired domestic was brought in by an inspector, along with another cat, due to welfare concerns.
Adam Spencer, spokesman for the RSPCA, said: “Vera was very nervous on arrival here and it has taken her a little while to gain in confidence and come out of her shell a little.
“Vera is looking for a home where she can always have her own space so that she feels secure and comfortable. When she does know you, she is affectionate and loving but it is on her terms and she will make it pretty obvious when she is not in the mood for your attentions with a grumble, slap or nip.
“She can get upset around other animals so is looking for a quieter home where she can be the only pet in the household. Vera can panic in new situations and will need very careful and slow introductions into the outside world when the time is ready. Vera hasn`t been interested in playing whilst she has been here but it is clear that she is an intelligent lady and she loves her catnip! She needs a home where she will be given plenty of things to do and to keep her clever mind occupied.
This girl needs an experienced owner willing to allow Vera to live life by her own rules.”
