Cherry is a domestic medium hair black and white female cat.
Cherry arrived in foster care with three kittens, one of whom we don't think was hers. Her kittens were in real danger of passing away, but a foster carer hand-reared them and got them through the most perilous times. The kittens went into care with another rescue, but Cherry remains with IFR.
It took a long time for Cherry to start to relax in her foster home. She was absolutely terrified and when people came near she would run around in circles, in sheer panic. She is now a lot more relaxed, and will even sniff at her human companions’ hair. They still cannot pat her though. She may never be a lap cat, but she has certainly come a long way and is lovable in her own special way!
LIKES / DISLIKES
Cherry dislikes being touched by people, though over time we hope she may become more snuggly. She likes to be given her space, and to be in a peaceful home environment where there is no pressure on her to be a snuggle cat.
Cherry needs a foster home with experienced cat people who are not expecting her to be a lap cat. A home without young children is best.

Send an email to email@example.com to request a meet & greet with the cat or kitten you are interested in. If the meet & greet goes well, adoption can go ahead. We must receive the full adoption fee plus a completed adoption contract before the cat can go to his or her trial home. Please email us to discuss all the steps required to adopt.
