Fergal was rescued after living as a stray in a garden for over a week. He was starving, dirty, tired and it was clear that he had been on the streets for a very long time.
He was un-neutered when he arrived and you could tell that he hadn’t had much in his life; he gets very protective over his things and will nip you when you try to clean his bed.
Fergal is a real lap cat and purr pot who loves attention, but can get possessive over things he likes and isn’t used to having.
We have noticed that this insecurity shows in other ways such as nipping us when he is getting loves and attention. The nips are hard enough to bruise but not break the skin and you have to be very confidant when dealing with him and not jump.
We think he is still learning how to respond to love and hope this will calm down now he is neutered and getting constant food, safety and love.
He will need to go to a home with experience of cats like Fergal, as it can be hard to manage and he will need patience and understanding.
Fergal is FIV+ please read more about FIV here: https://www.celiahammond.org/index.php/faqs/fiv-in-cats
Our cats are rescues, that have either been abandoned, stray, neglected or abused. All homes need to have a home check either by video call or in person and we will provide advice about caring for cats or kittens. This is also a chance for us to see what type of home you can offer to one of our cats and to best match a cat with your home and family.
Following a successful home visit, we will make an appointment for you to come and meet the cats at the shelter and adopt. If you have picked cat/s from the website, you will meet them on adoption day.
We are prioritising homes that are local to our centre and these are the Canning Town catchment areas: East London, parts of North London and parts of West Essex.
If you can offer a home to a harder to home cat, we will consider a home outside these areas.
