Boo is a friendly 9 year old cat who is sadly in need of a new home. Boo was rehomed by CHAT 9 years ago along with her mother and sister, sadly a child in their family developed an allergy to cats and all three cats had to be rehomed. We were delighted when their current family adopted all three cats. Sadly Boo has not settled so well in her new home, she has distanced herself from her mother and sister and has become unhappy. She suffered a bout of cystitis which a vet thinks was caused by stress and the deterioration in her relationship with her mother and sister who will chase her away. It is felt that Boo would be happiest with a new home all of her own.
"Boo is a self contained cat who will come for affection on her terms. Not a lap cat but will come and sit next to you for chin rubs. She will let you know when she has had enough. Probably not a cat for a house with small children as she will scratch when she has had enough. At the moment she generally gets chased off by the others when she comes onto the sofa to see us so she may be more affectionate if she is the only cat She was the most nervous of the 3 when she first arrived but also was the first to go exploring. We think she doesn’t like it when we go away so maybe a home where they don’t travel much. She likes playing and sleeping. Spends some time in the garden but doesn’t venture far or for long. The rest of the time she is happy chilling on a sofa or bed. She hasn’t really settled here and the vet thinks she would be happier in a single cat household"
We would consider an indoor only home with plenty of human companionship for Boo.
UPDATE 9th DEC: GOOD NEWS BOO HAS FOUND A NEW HOME!
Please note: We do carry out a pre-adoption home visit. This is an informal visit that takes place in your home. We provide any advice you may need about caring for and settling in new cats or kittens – incl health care, feeding, holiday arrangements, dangers in your home etc. We also look at the location of your home to assess for hazards such as easy access to busy roads or for indoor-only homes to advise on making windows or balconies safe. Our cats have varied temperaments and needs so we also discuss what ‘sort’ of cats would be suitable for you, your family, your lifestyle and your home. Once a successful home visit has been carried out you will be invited back by appointment to meet suitable cats either at our Rescue centre or at our local foster homes and choose your new feline companion(s). If you are interested in offering a home to one or more of our cats you are welcome to visit one of our Adoption Open Days prior to having a home visit but unless you have had a successful home visit you cannot choose or reserve cats at one of our Adoption Days.
