November 13th foster update:
“Merlin has been with us now for 2 weeks and has settled in well. He is very affectionate and likes to talk to you. He is extremely clean in his litter tray no little accidents anywhere, he also likes to be groomed. Merlin was rather on the thin size for a tom cat when I first got him but he has a very healthy appetite and is filling out slowly. Although he does not photograph very well being all black he truly is a handsome boy his fur has a deep chocolatey colour to it in the sunlight and he has gorgeous eyes. He loves nothing more than sleeping near you or on your knee, he also likes a cuddle and will fall asleep whilst being held like a baby. Merlin is a very special boy despite his background being found on the streets in a poor condition riddled with fleas he is trusting and just craves attention all the time. As you can see from his photos he is fine with other cats as he had a visit from my partner’s female cat who he sniffed at then just lay down near her not at all bothered. I feel he may be fine in a home with a chilled out female cat. As Merlin does crave a lot of attention it would be nice for him to find new adoptive parents who would be home some of the time rather than leaving him home alone for long periods of time. Merlin is truly a handsome boy and is well worth a visit to meet him, if you are looking for an affectionate cat he is the one for you. It would be lovely for this special boy to be given a second chance in life and get the perfect forever home.”


This poor boy was found abandoned by previous owner. He has a low grade heart (2/6) murmur and FAD but not needing any medication for this currently. He is very nervous and that is not surprising considering what he has been through. He loves being stroked once he is comfortable with you, which doesn’t take very long.

He has been health checked, wormed/flead, tested for FIV/FELV, started vaccinations, microchipped and been neutered.
