The Love Cat that needs a home: Feline's unique fur pattern means she's a real heart-throb

By Daily Mail Reporter

So wonderfully, wonderfully, wonderfully, wonderfully pretty! Love Cat Bettie Davis is in need of a new home after being dumped by her previous owners

At first glance she looks like any other black and white moggy, but a closer look at her markings reveal she could well have been the inspiration for The Cure's top ten hit The Love Cats in 1983.

The abandoned cat has become a heart-throb with animal carers after they noticed she bore a unique marking on her side - a perfect HEART.

Black and white 'Bette Davis' was handed in to Gables Farm Dogs' and Cats' Home last month looking dishevelled and emaciated after she was dumped by her previous owners.

But staff at the home in Plymouth, Devon, were stunned when they went to pick up the black and white two-year-old cat and spotted the distinctive heart-marking on her side.

Carer Katie Barkell said: 'We were gobsmacked when we first saw her. The heart shape is perfect and completely unique.

'She's become a real hit here at the home but for some reason she still hasn't been taken in.

'We're desperate for a caring family to come forward and take her in as she has such a lovely temperament to match the markings on her side.

'She can be a little timid and shy at times but loves it and purrs when you pick her up and give her a cuddle.

'We've never seen a cat, or dog for that matter, like her and we'll be sad to see her go.'

Bette is one of dozens of cats currently waiting to be re-homed at the centre in Plymouth, Devon.
