Sometimes in life, things just don't go your way. And that was certainly the case with a little tortoiseshell kitty called Missy.

A run of bad luck

Missy's run of bad luck began in February when she found herself at a Battersea Rescue shelter. Missy's mum's circumstances had changed, and she couldn't give her fur baby the life she deserved.

A few weeks later, vets had to remove Missy's ears after she developed an infection - don't worry, Missy can still hear ok!

Here's everything you need to know about adopting a rescue cat like Missy!

Then the Coronavirus struck. And as lockdown measures kicked in, Missy's chance of finding a home all but disappeared.


When Missy arrived at Battersea, our expert team could see that this pretty 3-year-old cat was often unhappy and shaking...

But the amazing staff at Battersea never give up on their furry guests! They did everything possible to make Missy feel safe and loved, knowing that this kitty's luck had to change.

And then it did! Because just last week, Missy moved out of the shelter and into her new home with a loving family.

Missy's happy ending

Michelle Henry-Clement is part of the team that nursed Missy through her bad patch. Speaking to the Metro, she said:

"We were sad to say goodbye to our unique cat but very excited for her to start the next chapter of her life."

Every cat deserves a happy ending. But we think Missy deserved hers just a little bit more than most!
