She was extremely timid, too nervous even to be held, and she had an unusual habit of eating with her paw rather than straight from a bowl. Tom Heward, Village Vet Recruitment Manager, grew particularly fond of Beyoncé during her stay at the hospital and decided to adopt her. The date was set – Friday 13th May – for her to go home with her new owner. She was transferred to Village Vet in St Albans where Tom collected her at the end of his working day.
After trying out a few different names on her, Tom said he saw her prick up her ears at Trixie. So it’s goodbye to Beyoncé and her harsh London life, and hello Trixie the Hertfordshire kitty.
