POLAR  Fallen on his paws as his fosterer has fallen for him and he will be getting a Pet Passport very soon to go to live in France!



When we received the call on our emergency line that a ‘big white cat’ needed our help, of course we responded.  We then got a call from our vets to say that they had a ‘big white cat’ from us that had been admitted and was in a very, very bad way.

He was indeed and had to stay in veterinary care for several days.  We  then got a call from the vet to say the ‘big white cat’ was a bit better and could go to one of our brilliant fosterers.  So off I toddled to collect him and was confronted by the BIGGEST WHITE CAT I have ever seen.  I was instantly in love with him.

Our fosterer said he was like a big cuddly teddy bear, so we have decided to call him Polar.

For the past few eeks he has been receiving lots of TLC and I am pleased to say that he has been given the all clear by our vet.  So while we were there, I asked for him to be weighed.  He is now 5.61 kgs a whopping 12 lbs in old money.

Polar is the gentlest male cat you could ask for.  He showed no signs of any aggression when he had to have his eyes and ears treated twice a day.  He also took his tablets with no trouble at all.  He sits and has his coat brushed and it’s now getting back to being a lovely snowy white rather than the dirty grey he was.  I am pleased to say that he needs no further medication.

We think Polar is around five years old.  He has obviously been someone’s cat as you can clearly see a collar mark around his neck.  We can only assume that, as he became so ill,  his callous owners kicked him out.  He is used to being handled and is very affectionate when he realises you mean him no harm.

He has the warmest nature and is safe and secure with our fosterer but he truly deserves to be in a new home where he can continue to recover and become a beautiful pet once again.

Please – do you have the room in your home and heart for this gorgeous boy?

Around 5 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.
