My Personality

Nelson really struggled adapting to the cattery environment. He found it very overwhelming and was conflicted on whether he wanted any human interaction; he was happy to let us know when he wasn’t in the mood! We then moved Nelson into a separate section of the cattery and he’s like a completely different cat. He is much more relaxed and loves to be fussed, although he will still let you know once he’s reached his limit. We believe that his strong dislike to other cats was impacting his behaviour, so for this reason Nelson will need to be adopted into a low cat populated area.

Nelson really enjoys food so this is a great way to make friends with him, although he can be a bit snatchy. He doesn’t seem to be very playful but really enjoys rolling around in some catnip.  

Nelson would benefit from a quite home with owners who understand cat behaviour, so know when he needs to be left to settle and when he wants some attention. For this reason he would benefit from initially being set up in an unused room for him to settle in before exploring the rest of the home and eventually an enclosed garden. 

We’re hoping there is someone really special out there who will give this boy a chance to hopefully thrive and feel loved in a new home he can call his own. 

Nelson needs to be an only pet in an adult only home. 

Nelson cannot be homed in the Winchester area and his adoption fee is £70.
