Overlooked rescue cat Daphne is still searching for a home a year on
A cat being cared for by animal-lovers in Suffolk is one of the hardest-to-home felines in the country – and has been waiting for more than a year to find new owners.
Black and white cat Daphne, being looked after by the Framlingham and Saxmundham Cats Protection group, has been named as one of the top 15 ‘Overlooked’ Rescue Cats in the UK.
Despite her long stay, volunteers at the busy branch are keen to find Daphne the purr-fect home.
They are now being helped by Cat Chat, a long-established online rescue and rehoming resource which provides an outlet for over-stretched rescue shelters to promote their cats for homing nationally.
Sara Turley, from Framlingham and Saxmundham Cats Protection, said: “Daphne, was taken into care after being found abandoned at her previous home.

“More recently, Daphne has settled down really well and her softer side has now become evident. Given a little patience and understanding while she gains confidence in her new home, Daphne will make a fabulous furry companion.”
Daphne is an eight-year old, spayed female, who would prefer a home where there are no young children or other cats.
Mandy Cotter, co-founder of Cat Chat, said: “It’s a sad fact that black, and black and white cats so often get overlooked, in favour of ‘prettier’ coloured cats.
“Daphne is such a unique character, we are really hoping someone will look past her coat colour and appreciate her individuality.”
