I do hope so, she was a beautiful beautiful cat! Although she was not right for us, I have been thinking about her a lot : )

Yes, a shame. She would have been purrfect otherwise.

Oh .... if she has long hair then she's not a pure Tonk.  Tonks have a very sleek smooth coat ... like a Siamese .... definately would never be classef as long or semi long haired.

Sara, this may sound silly but I remembered that before I went! I actually said to myself it was about the right cat and not to jump in and I remember your search for Drum and Bass. So actually that helped.

Aw, I'm touched!

I know you'll find your purrfect addition very soon!

Don't feel bad Simon, we rejected two pairs of cats before we found our girls and both times I felt terrible but if a cat's not right for you then there's nothing you can do about it. Far better that she wait a bit longer for the right home than for you to take her and not be 100% certain about it.

I'm sure Tilly will find that perfect home very soon.

Tilly was stunning but she was verging on longer hair and I don' think that would work for us.

Hi guys. Well we have been to see Tilly. She looks so much better than the picture below. All her fur has grown back and she looks really healthy now. We had a cuddle and she is a real live wire but I am going to be honest, she wasn't for us. She is probably longer hair than I imagined and I think the initial concerns about us adopting a breed came back. Both Sean and I were worried to say to the other one "No" as we both hoped she would be the right cat as as she is for age, gender and even location (plus we like the name!) but we are going to continue our search. I am really sorry :( sorry Tilly :(

I actually feel bad not taking her in but she wasn't the right little beauty for us.

I hope you find a beautiful home Tilly xxx

Well we are leaving in ten minutes, although i will be happy for Tilly if she has a home, I will be a bit peeved if we go down there for nothing. Plus we are certianly not at the stage of a homecheck, this is a cat check as I need to find out about her health and whether she has the right temprement to fit it with Ella and Archie!

I shall let you know!!

Well I am seeing her tomorrow around 2pm, so I will keep you posted. Looks like they have quite a bit of interest in her but she is letting me meet her first! Although that again makes me feel that maybe she is a cat that will be snapped up and I should be looking at another cat that isn't. Hmm anyway I will let my heart rule my head when I meet her and will see how I go and what i feel.

nervous!!

Before I helped at the CHAT sanctuary I thought the pedigrees would find homes easily but there are two beautiful snowshoe cats there that were there when I started 7 months ago and are still there. They are quite young as well. I also overheard a conversation with someone wanting to bring in a couple of persians. The member of staff was saying they were difficult to home. Maybe it's because people who want breeds generally go to a breeder rather than a rescue centre.

Oops sorry Kelly-Joy I should have thought about the info I posted! Have left a message with Patsy about popping over tommorow, it's not too far from us so it may all be happening for a reason. She will be loved if she comes to us - hoping we pass the home check!

Please don't think she will be any easier to re home just because she is a pedigree, sadly it is just as hard to re home pedigree cats as it is moggies :'( Sadly there are lots of pedigree cats and kittens waiting to come into Patsy as well , the amount of pedigree cats as defintely sadly got far worse  .
Yes its true that certain breeds have different traits , but you don't always get a cat that acts normal for the breed. I have a birman who isn't really anything like a birman personality wise , many people have sad to me he is more like a bengal as he is way to clever for his own good, then on the other hand my raggies are all as they say ragdolls are , big lazy lumps with not much up top in the brain department lol.
I didn't put the details behind why this little girlie came into rescue because I wasn't sure if Patsy wanted me to say anything, but yes she was living in a car poor baby, so I am sure that is how she got into the state she did. She will need a home where she will get lots of TLC as she has been getting from Patsy, she has the cutest meiow as well coz I was on the phone with Patsy not long after she was brought in and she was having a cuddle then.   
Good luck do let us know if you end up adopting her :hug:

I've a pedigree bengal (called Tilly!) along with my three rescue mogs they are all just the same, the only thing with pedigrees is that you have some idea of the personality beforehand (well that is the theory anyway!) as for this poor little good, she looks like she needs help as much as anyone

Well weirdly my gradnmothers name was Tilly. She died before I was born but it seems a nice touch !


Her being a pedigree means nothing really, only like I say that she may be snapped up quicker and maybe I should home another mog. Anyway tomorrow I will know as I will either fall in love with her or not :)

Sounds more and more promising

We have Minmin Ragdoll who has outdoor access she loves it bringing me in leaves and sitting in the sun, she isn't the brightest in the pound but doesn't do rain or snow :rofl:

Caspurr is having a long haul injection route due to a bad reaction 3 years ago and will have access to the outside to as he looks longingly out of all the windows but at 8kgs don't think much will challange him outwith the Clan

Pedigrees are lovely now I have 2 but love all my ferals and domestics just the same they are little fur children despite what a Pink Slip pedigree says :Luv2:

Well I think we will keep the name Tilly. Although we will see but the general consensus from both of us is if she comes here she will be called Tilly. Will pop and see her and I will know straight away, then we just have to wait for the visit and her to be vacc'd and neutered!

Yeah they can go out ..... at the end of the day she is still a CAT.  Just because she is pedigree (of course with no papers ... she is a mog  ;) ) you don't need to treat her any differently.  Once she knows her name and knows where she lives she will come back when called.  I have two pedigrees and they are treated no differently from the moggy.  They all go out and they all come in at bed time.

I hope the meeting goes well ... she looks like a little darling and I'm sure she will repay you 10 fold for giving her a chance.
