After a year of waiting Spike has finally been adopted by a very caring family.  Well done Spike

Spike was waiting for his photo-shoot when the photographer arrived. Sitting in the window, he knew he looked good!    He”d blow-dryed his fur ready (only kidding) making it a bit fluffy and charmingly dishevelled. Spike has grown up into a stunning long-haired cat, so plenty of brushing will be called for  in the future.  Play, play, play  is his mantra!   Spike”s  fosterer thinks he will fit into any houeshold- he loves a cuddle too when he has tired himself out!  We have used lots of exclamation marks in this description because that”s the sort of mischievious kitten Spike is!!!



Born in June 2012, Spike arrived feeling under the weather and in need of TLC from AARU and his fosterer.  He is on top form now and ready to meet you!  (More exclamation marks!!!)

Spike shares his fosterer with his best friend Shadow.  They are good friends and would be happy to stay together but can be adopted separately

Spike is about to be 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.
