Do you have room in your heart and home for sweet two-year-old cat Goldie, who has terminal cancer of the nose?
Goldie is a ginger kitty currently living at the RSPCA Leeds, Wakefield, and District branch.
She’s in search of a foster home where she’ll be able to spend her final days.
The affectionate kitten was diagnosed with cancer back in February. There’s no treatment available to help her, but luckily she’s still feeling healthy – the only noticeable sign she’s poorly is her swollen nose.
Goldie is very affectionate and loving, and adores cuddles on the sofa, snoozing on people’s laps, and playing with her feather toys.
The RSPCA is urgently trying to find Goldie a foster home so she can relax and feel loved rather than being in a cattery environment.
An RSPCA spokeswoman said: ‘We are still urgently looking for a foster home for poor Goldie.
‘She has recently been diagnosed with cancer of the nose and we are so sad to say there is no veterinary treatment available.
‘Aside from her swollen nose, Goldie seems to be feeling well – she’s loving and playful, the same as she’s always been.
‘It’s a real shame for her to be in the cattery while she still feels well and we want to get her settled into a foster home ASAP so she can enjoy the rest of her health for as long as possible.
‘As her health is inevitably going to decline, we are looking for a home with no other pets and no young children.
‘This is to ensure she stays safe when she becomes more fragile.
‘In the time being, Goldie would enjoy a safe outdoors space to explore.
‘Goldie may be ill, but right now she is still a playful, affectionate young cat and she will make a wonderful companion for somebody in the time she has.’
While she’s in a foster home, all of Goldie’s veterinary care will be funded by the center, so potential fosterers don’t need to worry about spending a lot of money on treatment.
She’s in Leeds and will need a foster home near the shelter.
If you think you could give Goldie the home she deserves, fill in an application to foster through the RSPCA website.
