Rehoming – Profile
Thomas came into us as stray. Someone had been feeding him for approx 6 years. He was microchipped but unfortunately the details were incorrect and we couldn’t trace his owner.
Behaviour observations on site:
After spending over 6 years outside, Thomas was understandably very apprehensive of our intentions and didn’t like being confined in the cattery environment. It took him a little while to settle and once he did he realised he actually likes being around people and can sometimes crave your attention. When out on the cattery floor Thomas is happy exploring and sniffing everywhere, but does keep checking back in with you and will enjoy some gentle fuss.
Thomas hasn’t shown any interest in playing with toys while in our care but he does loves rolling around in catnip, and occasionally eating some!
To prevent Thomas from becoming overwhelmed he would benefit from initially being set up in an unused room. As Thomas has not been in a home environment for 6 years things will need to be introduced gradually to him and at a pace he feels comfortable with.
Thomas needs to be an only pet as he gets quite irritated when seeing other animals. He can live with teenaged children who will understand when Thomas is happy to be fussed and when he wants to be left alone. Thomas will swipe out if he is over handled and sometimes if he is a little unsure of a situation.
We reserve the right to remove a reserve at any stage of the adoption process if we believe it is in the best interest of the cat.
Thomas has had a dental while in our care and is currently suffering with gingivostomatitis (inflammation of the gums) and is currently on pain relief for this. We are hoping that once Thomas is adopted and is in his new home he will be less stressed and his gums will heal quicker. While his gums are healing we will over his medication and vet care with our on site vet until his gums have healed enough and he is discharged by our vet. Thomas has no other known medical conditions.
Adopters should consider that previous medical conditions will now not be covered by insurance. Adopters are responsible for the on-going medical costs once the animal has been adopted.
Thomas cannot be homed in Sholing and his adoption fee is a minimum donation for £80.
