We’re pretty certain this old gent was dumped because he’s elderly – about 15 years old we believe. He was fortunate enough to run into one of our lovely volunteers and is now safely in foster care.
He’s a sweet, loving old chap who just wants a knee to snuggle on, and to be cared for. He’ll probably enjoy a potter around a safe garden once he’s settled in his new home. We think he’s quite deaf … though its never easy to distinguish between true deafness and selective deafness in a cat 😉 so that needs to be added to normal considerations around safety. He will definitely need to be back indoors at night time and have access to a litter tray indoors.
He’ll probably be happier in a quiet home, or at least one where he’s allowed space to do things in his own time. His lovely foster carer has other cats, kids and a dog so we’ll update the advert as we get a clearer picture of how he manages with co habiting.
We always homecheck prior to adoption,and as a minimum adoption donation of £50 for an older cat. There’s more about our adoption process here: http://www.8livescatrescue.org/adoption-process.html and you’ll probably find more photos and stories about him here: https://8livescatrescue.wordpress.com/ and here: https://www.facebook.com/8Lives/
