A 2-year-old cat named Monique has been living in a London shelter for a long time. Recently she had a birthday party. But the thing is that no other animals could be brought to her birthday party, so she was left alone. But the shelter staff took care of that.
According to representatives of the organization, Monique has feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). Therefore, she is not allowed to have contact with other shelter residents. The staff say she is a very kind, well-mannered and affectionate animal who has been waiting for 115 days for her new owners to come to the shelter. Unfortunately, many people think that with such a cat will be difficult. But it isn’t. Such a disease does not require any intervention. And cats with it sometimes live even longer than healthy cats.
The employees threw a birthday party for Monique, but no one came to congratulate her.
After that, the staff decided to take action-they posted a “lonely” photo of Monique from her birthday party on social media, and wrote about how this kitty wants to be loved. “Although Monique is an amazingly beautiful, well-mannered lady with a great personality, she feels unwanted and unloved,” the shelter staff wrote.
“Despite the fact that Monique is an amazingly beautiful, well-mannered lady with a great personality, she feels unwanted and unloved,” the shelter staff wrote.
According to Chrissy Grindrod, the shelter manager, it’s painful to see such a young and beautiful cat being ignored all the time, thinking she’s doomed. In fact, Monique has a long and happy life ahead of her, even despite her illness. After all, some cats with FIV live as long as normal healthy cats.
The staff at the shelter hope that soon this beautiful girl will find a loving home and will truly enjoy life. We wish her to find her long-awaited family soon. Please, be happy, Monique!
