Scared cat with moustache spent months living in wooden box in freezing cold

A 'frightened' cat with unusual facial markings spent months living in the freezing cold inside a wooden box.

The extremely cute three-year-old cat is on the lookout for a new home – after having spent so much time alone over the winter.

Pavlova, a stray taken in by the RSPCA last month, has a little black line above its mouth, which resembles a very gentleman-like moustache.

She also has a black goatee, too.

She was saved by the team at RSPCA Middlesex North West & South Hertfordshire branch, who work across London and Hertfordshire.

The branch animal welfare officer, Tracy Deamer, said: “A family had been feeding Pavlova for a few months and even made her a wooden box shelter to sleep in when it turned cold over Christmas.

“They grew concerned for her welfare and she came into our care at the end of January.

“She was very timid when she arrived and it’s taking her some time to get used to us and the cattery.

"She is a really beautiful cat but does need a specific home with owners who have taken care of frightened cats before.”

Away from the striking facial features, Pavlova has a black and white coat, with gorgeous markings, too.

She is described as an “independent” girl, who likes to explore.

Ms Deamer added: “Pavlova seems to like other cats but is ideally looking for a quiet, adult-only home without other pets.

“She’s an independent girl and would like access to outside space so she can go out and explore.

“She needs a quiet home as she is very nervous and sometimes hisses at us when we approach,” “We really want this gorgeous girl to get the chance she deserves and, with time, we hope she’ll grow in confidence and become a wonderful companion for someone who is happy to give her the time and space she needs.”
