Please browse our collection of cats waiting to find a new loving home...
All the cats in our foster care have been vet checked, neutered, vaccinated, deflead, wormed & microchipped. Our adoption fee is £75 for a cat or kitten. We have a wide range of cats looking for homes, including a number who are not yet on our website, and some who are indoor cats.
Orlando arrived in the garden when a foster cat was on heat and, although she was kept safely inside, he remained hopeful and ended up staying around even after she was spayed and had gone to a new home! His vet check found him to be in good health and no more than 2 years old. He has a few scratches from fights, not uncommon for an unneutered tom, but his were very minor. He did have one undescended testicle which was removed from high in his abdomen when he was neutered. This made his operation quite complex but should not present any subsequent issues and he has healed very nicely. He has also been found to have a very slight heart murmur but, again, this should not result in any long-term health problems. Although, as a unneutered tom, Orlando was at risk of FIV, his test result was negative. I do not know Orlando’s origins but I doubt he has ever had a proper home because his undescended testicle was a health risk which would have been addressed by any responsible owner. However, he is an affectionate boy and his good condition on arrival suggests that he has been successful at scrounging food and attention and he certainly trusts people.
As you can see from the photos, Orlando is a handsome ginger and white chap with a wonderful, stripy tail. Personality wise, he is a friendly, gentle soul, is happy to be picked up, stroked etc. and has a lovely purr. He adores catnip, chicken, dreamies and cat milk. He dislikes visiting the vet and being teased by my resident cats. He has been around my 8 year old son a lot and is perfectly fine with young children. He is a decent sized cat, but not huge, weighing in at 4.2kg. My son is desperate to keep Orlando but we have a couple of cats already and Orlando really deserves a proper home of his own where he can finally get the love and attention he never had as a stray.
Orlando got his name from the Orlando the Marmalade Cat books by Kathleen Hale. He really is a delightful cat and would make a lovely pet so please do consider adopting him.
