IRIA, THE WILD CAT [By Alicia, Scooby’s volunteer]

We get many calls every day, this time of a very special cat. Her owner had passed away and she had been at home living by herself for a month and a half. A person fed her daily but it was the time to get her out of there. We were told that she was fierce and that she didn't allow no one to touch her. I was very surprised that a cat like that lived in a flat with people, so we went to capture that 'wild cat'.
When we arrived we met a very frightened cat, she was very traumatized by the death of her owner. But it did not take much to "capture" her, it seems that the wild cat was not so much.
We took her to Scooby to check and castrate her. There she became much more stressed. She stayed in a corner without moving and barely ate. Seeing her like this broke my heart so, I took her home until we find a forever home for her.
Little by little she is getting used to the house, she needs time and a cosy space where she can feel comfortable. She is learning very fast and 'the wild cat' has turned out to be a wonderful cat, she just needed a little affection and understanding.
Now IRIA, I gave her this name, is looking for a family that understands her, a quiet home where she can feel safe, if she gets that she will be happy and I will be too.
