Tomte arrived with us just before Xmas. It seems he’d been living outdoors at least since the summer, being fed by a kindly person. Extensive searches for an ‘owner’ found nothing other than someone on the next street having seen him living roughs for months.
You might think an unneutered tom cat, full of fleas and being used to having to defend himself would be a little stand offish. However you’d be wrong. His main concern, more than food, was to catch up on missed cuddles.
He’s now neutered microchipped, flea and worm free. He’s also started his vaccinations – second vacc is already paid for at Vets4Pets in Millhouses and due mid January.
Tomte would love a home where he could get cuddles and time with his family …… whilst also pursuing his outdoor interests. Ideally he’ll have a safe garden to explore once he’s settled, though we strongly recommend that cats be kept indoors overnight. We’re not sure how he might get on with other cats, and being an adult tom who is recently neutered it may take a little while for his hormones to settle down.
We always homecheck prior to adoption and ask a minimum adoption donation of £70 for a neutered adult 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/
