Neo was living as a stray when he came into us with a dislocated hip. Our amazing vet team performed emergency surgery and he is well on the road to recovery. He is currently being weaned off his pain relief medication and may still be on a low dose when he goes to his new home.
Neo was semi-feral when he arrived and was, not surprisingly, incredibly wary of our intentions. In the first few weeks of recovery we have had a complete hands off approach with Neo and had been encouraging him to walk on his leg, luckily he loves following a trail of food, food is definitely the way to his heart!
When being touched Neo can be very flinchy and will back away from any contact you make. Over the last couple of weeks Neo has worked more closely with one member of staff and is starting to realise that being stroked is something to be enjoyed. He can still be a little apprehensive at first but is soon head butting for more fuss and loves having his cheeks rubbed. Trust is very important for Neo.
Neo is looking for a calm and quiet adult only home to call his own. He will need his own unused room to initially settle in and new owners need to be prepared this could be the case for weeks or months. As Neo is going to take time to settle and has had to fight for food in his past he would be best suited as an only pet.
Neo’s new owners need to have experience with nervous cats and understand that it will take time and patience for him to settle. A hands off approach is vital to start with. It would be beneficial for a couple of meets to happen at the shelter. Once he feels at home we believe he will be a loving boy and his new owners will be lucky to have him in their lives.
Neo cannot be homed in Southampton (SO40 area) and his adoption fee is a minimum donation of £80.
