When I met Victoria at the AWLQ Ipswich Rehoming Centre she was curled into a ball, shaking and matted.
Her toenails were so long they had curled around her foot, her fur stained green from going to the toilet and not being cleaned. She had flea nests near her mouth that were impossible to scratch because her fur had grown and twisted which pulled her skin as she scratched.
She had been left and neglected for we will never know how long… When we bathed and began to clip her she laid in our laps letting out big sighs. Little by little though she came back to life. When the last knot had been removed she took her first pain free steps.

While this is predominately a dog blog I have been very entertained lately by all the cats looking for new homes at the AWLQ. There are more than 70 available for adoption of all breeds, ages and sizes. There is NO EXCUSE for getting a pet from anywhere other than a shelter.
Meet my favourites.
