Ruby Shoes was a wee kitten when she was transferred into our care from her local council in the hope that we could find her a home.

One of our longest-term residents, Ruby was with us for almost two years, living most of the time with a foster carer, where she passed her time lapping up the sun and playing in her outdoor cat enclosure.

We never gave up on finding a permanent home for Ruby and finally, after almost two years, she was adopted.

Her future parents had spotted her on our Facebook page and it was “love at first sight”. Her mum says she is now “queen of the house”.
