Charlie charlie2











Charlie is spoilt rotten and doing
well despite starting to feel his age but still has a huge
appetite. As he is a house cat he gets to go out in the sun
on his harness which he doesn’t mind a bit.


Charlie has now found his ‘forever home’ after being fostered for the past couple of years.


Sarah and Phil took on Charlie as fosters but found they fell in love with him within the first few days and couldn’t let him go.  Charlie has a heart murmur which means he has to be a house cat so he can take his tablet every day.  Sarah says…” Charlie is now completely spoilt and has the household routine wrapped round his little paw! He is very vocal about letting me know when it is dinner time and loves a cuddle at the end of the day.  We love him to bits and couldn’t think about being without him now.  I look forward to walking through the door at the end of the day and being greeted by his very loud purrs and leg rubs”

Here is what his fosterer has to say about Charlie:

“Charlie is an incredibly loving cat, who likes nothing better than to be on your lap or rubbing around your ankles.  He purrs the moment he sees you!

He is an excellent little cat, taking his tablet each day with no fuss.  I just open up his mouth and he swallows his tablet whole.

Charlie has a very healthy appetite and loves to try any food you make; regardless of whether it is meant for him or not!”

Charlie is neutered, litter-trained and micro-chipped and you maybe surprised to know that he is a teenager of around 12-14 years old.  Please don”t let this put you off, as he still needs his forever home!  Charlie has a mild heart condition, easily treated, inexpensive ( help available if needed) and of no concern.  We think that, when you meet him,  he will steal your heart with his adorable face and sunny personality! Unfortunatly, like many senior kitties, Charlie has been over-looked. We and he would be so happy if some kind person can offer him the warm and caring retirement home he is so very deserving of.
We are looking for an INDOOR ONLY home please for the delightful Charlie.
