Here is what Billy’s fosterers have to say about him:

Billy has settled in so well with us over Christmas! He’s been very friendly and welcoming to all my friends and family, he loves company and was very gentle with my 5 year old god-daughter, diving on her pencils when she was drawing.

He loved batting the baubles on the Christmas tree and didn’t break any! Billy likes to sleep and relax next to me on the sofa, at around 18months he’s like a teenager inside a big cuddly body, very gentle and playful. Always there to greet me in the morning and won’t rest until he’s given his breakfast. Billy is fascinated with running water and tries to catch it with his paw. He responds to a firm quiet “no” if required.

Billy was a little stressed when he first came into AARU due to a shaky start in life but he’s put on weight now and is a calm, playful, confident cat whose taking new experiences in his stride and ready to go to his forever home. 

Around 18 months old, Billy has been neutered, had flea and worming treatment and is micro-chipped and litter-trained, all our cats are “snap” blood-tested for Felv/FIV at the Vets and found to be negative unless CLEARLY stated.
