Queenies move to our new centre in Somerset

Yesterday, Queenie made the trip from our Exeter adoption centre to our new
Taunton Homing and Information Centre.
Here's a few pictures of her settling into her new apartment...

Queenie spent most of her life as an indoor cat before coming into the centre many months ago. She needs to find an owner who will give her time and patience to help her settle in to her new home. She is very affectionate but like most cats, also enjoys her independence and a quiet space to sleep in.
