Six months ago Susan Drent got quite the surprise when she found a thin cat scrounging around for scraps in the family's chicken coup.
An RSPCA foster carer, Mrs Drent took the nervous cat into their home where her family fed, cared for and gave Belle much love.
"She was very, very nervous, but she let me pick her up," Mrs Drent said.
"Before we got her I think she had it pretty rough."
Now Belle is ready to find her 'forever' home.
"She would be a lovely pet for a couple with no children or other pets," Mrs Drent said.
"She has a lovely nature and I think she is very pretty.
"She can be quite entertaining to watch when she is in a playful mood too."
Mrs Drent said they believed Belle was about two-and-a-half years old and needed an owner who would take special care of her.
"She is classed as special needs. It means she needs someone who is going to look after her with her anxiety," Mrs Drent said.
"She does not like male cats, the owner must not have male cats. She is fine with dogs.
"She loves to roll around in the dirt when she goes outside but she is more comfortable inside. She is an inside cat who likes to wander outside occasionally if she feels safe.
"She likes to be played with but she may take a while to adjust.
"She likes to sit on the stool in the kitchen and just watch. She just likes to be around people.
"When she is comfortable in her surroundings she is playful, funny and affectionate."
