Bessie – female domestic short hair cat



Rescue cat for adoption in The Gap, Brisbane: Calling all the singles ladies, put your hands up and show some love for bodacious Bessie, who came into our care when her beloved owner passed away. In her current environment, she is a shy girl, however she becomes a real chatterbox when she gets to know you, and particularly if the resident cats are not cramping her style, and they do. Not because they’re deliberately trying to get up her nose, they just are.

While Bessie loves, loves, loves a cuddle, she is not a lap cat. Bessie is happy to sit next to you on the couch and have her back scratched. Don’t we all? Besides, the need to have a lap cat comes with limitations. Lap cats are over rated, the believe it’s all about them, and have the audacity to complain when you want to move them. If you’re sensitive to their wants and needs, they can make you feel like a bad parent, so it’s nice to have your lap to yourself.

Bessie is excellent company and is also used to being on her own during the day while you’re at work. She is definitely used to being an only cat, and we owe it to her to find that special someone, preferably a single lady who likes what she sees and is willing to make the effort to adopt a middle age cat who is simply seeking the companionship of a friend, for life.

Bessie is approximately 5-6 years old and her adoption fee is $150.
