Rehoming – Profile


Billy came into our care as he found his previous home set up stressful causing him on and off cystitis despite his owners best efforts.

Behaviour observations on site:

Billy found coming into the cattery environment really stressful to start with. However after a few days he realised it wasn’t quite that scary and has flourished ever since. He’s happiest being socialised in his outside run and as soon as you sit down he stakes his claim on your lap and very rarely moves off it! He can be a bit of a poser on your lap, he loves rolling around and is constantly paddy pawing.

Billy is an incredibly sensitive boy; to give him the best chance of settling and reduce any possible cystitis flare ups he is looking to be an only pet in his new home with no children. It needs to be a calm and quiet home, with his own room to initially settle in to prevent him becoming overwhelmed. Once he’s settled and has the full run of the house he would love a garden to explore and soak up the sun.

We reserve the right to remove a reserve at any stage of the adoption process if we believe it is in the best interest of the cat. 

Medical history:

Billy had history of cystitis on and off in his previous home and did suffer when he came into our care. He is currently on some medication which will be beneficial to be continued at least through the settling in period in his new home. It is recommended that Billy stays on a urinary tract supplement long term.

Apart from Billy’s cystitis flare ups , he has no other known medical issues.

Adopters should consider that previous medical conditions will now not be covered by insurance. Adopters are responsible for the on-going medical costs once the animal has been adopted.

Additional information:
Billy cannot be homed in Southampton and his adoption fee is a minimum donation of £80.
