Injured cat who spent an entire year at Cambs RSPCA looking for a purring home
A cat that was taken into the care of the RSPCA with a facial injury has now spent a year looking for its forever home. The eight-year-old had a large abscess on his face when he was taken to Fen Block Animal Center around March.
Luckily, after having some vet work, Bee Bee recovered quickly. Rescuers say Bee Bee was quite reserved when he arrived at the center and spent a lot of time in hiding.
Over time, however, the staff at the center managed to earn Bee Bee’s trust. He is now out of his shell and ready to join his forever home.

Alice Cooper, animal care assistant at the centre, said: “After being with us for some time now, we are desperate to find him the perfect home. He has become much more comfortable with his surroundings and spends most of his days either sleeping all day or sitting outside watching birds. He is also a great gourmand and it is often the way to his heart! Bee Bee likes to fuss, but it has to be on its own terms.
“Bee Bee will never be a lap cat, he likes to explore the great outdoors and we don’t know how he will settle into a home environment, so adopters will need to be prepared to potentially have him as an outdoor cat if that makes him happy.”
The charity says Bee Bee could be relocated to a farm, stable or house with a large garden. It should have a suitable enclosure on the outside and access to the house should be on the inside.
Alice added: “Unfortunately, as we don’t know much about his past, we don’t know if he has ever lived in a house before. He has shown clear signs that he is a very independent cat who loves being able to do his own thing, but he also has much softer moments.
“Bee Bee had a rough start in life, so we think it’s time he had a home of his own after spending a full year in the cattery! This talkative, handsome boy has a lot of love to give to someone who has the patience and understanding to help his confidence grow.
Bee Bee loves the company of other cats and has befriended animal center resident cat Dave so he can be rehomed with other friendly felines. He would prefer an adult-only home and enjoy an outdoor lifestyle.
