About me

Hi I am Iris...

I am a very stunning girl, don't you think? I've been told that I'm very sweet and a gentle girl. It takes me some time to gain confidence in new situations and for my real personality to shine through, so if you think you could provide me with lots of nice hidey holes and a bit of patience then I'm the cat for you!

I've been at the centre a while now, and its starting to get me down.

Hope to be meeting you soon Iris x

Help Iris to find a happy home with the gift of pet sponsorship!

Does your loved one have room in their heart, but not in their home, for a pet of their own? Blue Cross sponsorship is the perfect present for animal lovers.

Sponsor a pet as a gift for your loved one from as little as 70p a week, and they will receive monthly updates from real homeless pets in our care who are just waiting to meet their new families. Your chosen friend or family member will also receive a downloadable certificate from each of the dogs, cats, small pets and horses they’ve helped to find loving new homes.
