Rehoming – Profile


Toby came in to us as a stray and was suffering with conjunctivitis, a sign of cat flu.

Behaviour observations on site:

You can’t help but fall in love when you meet Toby. He’s such a loving and gentle boy.

He was a little nervous to start with and did prefer the comfort of his outside carrier. Now he’s settled his character is really starting to shine. He’s such an affectionate boy who craves human company. He just loves to be stroked and have a chat, he will happily tell you when he’s not centre of attention!

He has also become incredibly playful, being a typical cat his favourite toy is some coloured string!

Toby can be a little noise sensitive so would be best suited to a calm and quiet home and can live with sensible children aged 10+. Due to Toby being a cat flu carrier he needs to be an only pet.

Cat flu is very common in cats and causes symptoms similar to that of the human common cold. Toby is a carrier which means he can go through life showing no, or minimal signs but could occasionally have flare ups during times of stress. Flare ups could involve signs such as discharge from eyes or nose, sneezing or loss of appetite. If this is the case he may need to see a vet to get some antibiotics or eye drops and will need to be kept in until fully recovered. Once he’s better he can start going outside again. It is recommended for Toby to have his annual booster vaccinations to reduce any future cat flu symptoms.


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.
