Battersea Dogs and Cats Home are appealing for people to come forward and give a cat a home for the most heartbreaking reason.

Monique is a two-year-old cat who has lived at Battersea for just over three months and is currently “patiently waiting for her forever home”.

The animal shelter posted a picture of Monique, at her birthday party, but what broke everyone’s hearts was that nobody attended.

Battersea describes her as a “unique girl” who “has an adorable gentle nature and a lot of affection to give”.

They captioned the post: “Monique the cat is looking for a home after nobody turned up to her birthday party. She has FIV (which cannot be passed to humans) and has been with us for 115 days.”

Alongside the photo, Battersea attached a link to Monique’s page which says: “Monique loves spending time with her human friends and enjoys leaping around her pen when they play with her favourite string toy.

“Monique longs for a home and garden of her own where she can play until her heart’s content and snooze away on her new family’s warm laps. Monique is looking for an enclosed garden she can access via a cat flap.”

On their website, Battersea explains that Monique has Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, a slow acting virus.

And although many cats with the virus continue to live a happy, long life, there are some precautions the new owners should consider in order to protect both Monique and other cats.

The site says they will only rehome FIV+ cats to homes with cat proof gardens, meaning that she will be the only cat in the household.

They also assured that they will arrange for prospective owners to speak with a Battersea vet prior to rehoming Monique to ensure that the garden is correctly “cat-proofed”.
