Quinn is a friendly older male ex stray male cat possible around 10 years old. Our vets have neutered and microchipped, vaccinated and treated Quinn for fleas and worms. However it was soon observed that Quinn was experiencing some digestive issues and faecal samples were run which tested all clear. Quinn has been tried on a variety of foods for tummy upsets and these have helped a bit. Our vets also ran some general blood tests and then discovered that Quinn was also diabetic, he is being treated with the new oral diabetic medication Senvelgo once daily in food, Quinn is responding very well to this medication. It is possible for cats with diabetes to go into remission but time will tell.
We are seeking a new home for Quinn under our Long Term Foster Scheme whereby he can return to our vet clinic for veterinary care related to diabetes and digestive issues and for low cost care for his general health.
Quinn is an older, calm cat and we feel that he would be quite happy retiring to a comfy home with lots of human attention so an indoor only home would suit Quinn or a home with supervised outdoor access.
Because our cats are rescued we do like to meet potential adopters this can either be at your home (home visit) or via a video call e.g WhatsApp this is an informal visit to provide advice about caring for cats or kittens e.g health care, feeding, settling in and also an opportunity for us to feel reassured that you could provide a good home.
Following a successful home assessment we can make an appointment for you to come and meet our cats.
We are prioritising homes that are local to our centres. Lewisham Branch Homing catchment area: All SE London and BR (Bromley) postcodes. Also N.Kent (Welling, Bexley, Sidcup, Swanley, Dartford), Croydon and SW London (SW8, SW9, SW2, SW11, SW4, SW12, SW16) If you can offer a home to a 'harder to rehome' cat we will consider homes outside our usual rehoming areas.
Our reception is also now open every Saturday and Sunday afternoon between 1p.m and 5p.m for prospective adopters to come and have an initial chat with our Homing staff and volunteers about adopting our cats and meet a few cats prior to a home assessment.
