When Mitzi was trapped in the City Works Yard at the end of March, she was unspayed and so terrified of that she was thought to be feral.

After a short time at the sanctuary, it became clear that Mitzi was tame - albeit understandably pretty stressed about recent events in her life. By the time I met her on Monday night, she had calmed right down and would meow for attention and purr when she got it.

Mitzi will be moved to the No. 5 Rd. shelter (if she hasn't already) for adoption. Leslie says there may even be people looking for their lost girl, and they'll have a better chance of finding her there.


  1. Didn't see her tonight. Let's hope someone is out there looking for her and there will be a happy reunion in her future. Gorgeous cat.

  2. She's gone to 5 Road!!!!!!!!!!!!
