My name is Carl and I need a home 🏡 🙏 🐾

Gender: Male

DOB: 7-8 years

Colour: Black and White

Neutered: Yes

Triple Vaccinated: Yes

Chipped: Yes

Flea and worming: Yes

Cat Lover: Yes

Dog Lover: No

Socialised with children: Untested – he is not a playful cat so won’t be chasing toys and doesn’t like being picked up (it causes him pain) but he loves to be stroked.

Indoor/Outdoor: Either

Likes being brushed and stroked!!! Dislikes being picked up due to pain.

HISTORY and HEALTH ISSUES: Carl was taken to the vet by a concerned member of the public that had seen him laid in a bush in the same position for nearly a week and knew something was wrong. The vets discovered that Carl has degenerative arthritis which is why he was laid in the same spot for the whole week. He was immediately put on Metacam and will need a low dose of Metacam everyday for the rest of his life to alleviate the pain in his joints. He also has muscle wastage in his back legs from lack of movement so will need to build up his leg muscles. Carls coat is not great, he is filthy from dragging his back end around and not being able to clean himself properly. He will need regular grooming from his forever person. We currently use a dry shampoo most days and give him occasional sponge baths using warm water (with cat shampoo mixed in) and a soft cloth, then dry him using a clean towel.

Character: Carl is NOT a very active cat. He spends his days laying around testing out different soft spaces and begging for food. He absolutely loves being brushed and stroked. He is very food motivated and is really enjoying having food on demand.

Adoption fee: £80
