Adopt an animal

Patrick

Age: 3 years approxSex: MaleBreed: Domestic Short HairAdoption fee: £90

Patrick came to the centre via an inspector after he was found with a severe fracture to his leg, sadly this was an old fracture that could not be fixed so the decision was made to amputate his leg as he was not using it anyway. Poor Patrick had simply learnt to live with the pain during his time on the streets, he is now ready to start a new chapter in his life in a loving new home.

Patrick is a very nervous boy who finds it hard to trust people again after being left abandoned on the street to fend for himself. He is slowly coming round and beginning to enjoy being fussed and having a tickle under his chin. Patrick will need an understanding adopter who will give him the space needed to settle in his own time. Patrick has become a firm favorite here at the centre as we have seen him through thick and thin and we deeply believe he will make someone a smashing pet. Street cats sometimes take a little longer to settle and learn to trust again but when they do you really will not get a more loyal best friend.

Patrick will need to be a house cat as he has tested positive for FIV, this means he will need to be the only cat in the home or with another FIV positive cat. Please do not let this put you off and staff will be only too happy to discuss the condition with potential adopters.

My personality...

I'd prefer to be the only cat in a home

I need to be kept indoors

I’d prefer an adult only household

I’m a shy guy; I’ll need time to settle

I would prefer not to live with a dog
