Beautiful Bengal cat needs forever home after being found on the streets

Could you be Poppy’s new owner?


The Bengal Cat Association

A beautiful Bengal cat is desperate to find a new home.

Poppy, who is believed to be aged between six and seven-years-old, has been searching for a forever home since September.

An appeal, by the Bengal Cat Association, was shared on Facebook in a bid to find Poppy’s new owners who will look after her.

The cat was handed in at a Liverpool vet as a poorly stray back in September but no one has come forward to claim her.

When she was handed into the vets she was suffering from “flu-like symptoms.”

The Bengal Cat Association posted on Facebook: “Poppy was given antibiotics but didn’t respond so the vets swabbed for bacteria which came back negative.


“They did an X-ray and there was some increased opacity in the nasal cavity so it was decided to treat her for chronic rhinitis with steroids to which she has had an amazing response.

“The vet would like to keep her on the steroids for a little longer but feels she is now well enough to be placed in a home.

“The Bengal Association will cover the cost of her steroids until she is ready to come off them.”

Poppy is a brown marble female Bengal.

“She is a very confident, people-friendly cat who is full of head butts and purrs,” said the Bengal Cat Association.

“She is neutered, microchipped and will have started her vaccinations.

“Not knowing Poppy’s full history we don’t know how she would be with other cats or dogs.

“Whilst at the vets she has seen other cats and has been ‘hissy’ with them. However, whilst we were visiting Poppy she was trying to get in with another cat and showed no aggression.”

Poppy is currently located in the North West, England the Bengal Cat Association will be happy to help with transportation to the right home.

A rehoming fee will cost £100.
