Hi, I’m Howie…Howie Houdini, escapologist and magician extraordinaire.I’m around 3 years old and have, on occasion, been known to practice my escaping tricks on my fosterers. No window is safe from the famous Howie Houdini, leave the slightest gap and I will vanish before your very eyes!A natural escapologist like myself doesn’t appreciate being kept indoors and I am very excited that I may soon find a home where the great outdoors is mine to explore once again. Until then I will continue to practice and perfect the art of escaping.

I’m not only skilled at escaping, I can also perform magic tricks. They include making food disappear….just place the bowl in front of me and abracadabra…it’s vanished! I can also make people fall in love with me with just a swish of my tail, so you’ve been warned, once you meet me you won’t be able to resist me.

You will often find me sitting on the windowsill, my fosterer thinks I’m just chilling out but I’m actually thinking up new tricks and illusions. My latest trick is using my handsome features to get treats whenever I feel like it, it’s not working at the moment but I won’t give up. How can you resist these cheeks…you will not resist these cheeks…these cheeks deserve treats!

I am very good at using the litter tray and get on ok with other cats. My current fosterer has 7 other cats and this hasn’t caused me any concern, it just gives me a larger audience to appreciate my shows.

So if you think you have room in your family for a magical cat, please come and pay me a visit and I’m sure to put a spell on you.

Around 3 years old, neutered, micro-chipped, litter-trained.  He has had flea and worming treatment. All our cats are “snap” blood-tested for Felv/FIV at the Vets and found to be negative unless CLEARLY stated.
