Rehoming – Profile


William came into our care as a stray with a huge abscess on his neck. After 2 months of care and treatment he is now ready to find his forever home.

Behaviour observations on site:

William is a really sensitive little man and will rarely come out of the safety of his carrier. He’s bonded and responds really well with a couple of trusted people and is affectionate and loving with them. William’s new owners must be prepared to be patient with him and allow him to go at his own pace. With this in mind he will need to start off in his own room (one that is unused) and only move onto others once he feels safe and comfortable. With time and patience we really believe William will thrive and become a loyal companion.
Because William is such a shy boy we believe he will do better as an only pet and a calm quiet adult only environment.

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

Medical history
William has a cat bite abscess that is healing well and has had some dental treatment in our care.
As William’s neck wound is still healing we are looking for a foster to adopt home for him as he may need surgery in the next couple of months to stitch it up if it doesn’t fully close.

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.


Additional information:

William cannot be rehomed to Basingstoke and his adoption fee is a minimum donation of £80.
