Our Longest Foster Residents
- Foster in Bristol, ReservedThis very handsome senior kittizen (about 12) is George. George was rescued aged about 5 with a couple of health issues and unable to “cat” properly – he wasn’t used to strokes and fuss at all. His owner spent a lot of time and energy to bring him on and did a brilliant job but the arrival of a new baby left him very stressed and anxious so he came into foster with us. George is an affectionate boy but on his terms. If you go to fuss him when he is not in the mood he runs off. However, when he is in the mood you need to stop what you are doing and give him your full attention because he will let nothing get in the way of getting a good fuss so you will just have to put down that cup of tea until George says so! He is not a lap cat but he will sit on the sofa next to you or behind you and at bedtime he often tries to sit on his foster mum’s shoulder or chest. He can be ok with some other cats but he doesn’t like the youngsters barrelling up to him to say hi and he can get a bit possessive of his foster mum when her cats are having a fuss so he would be best probably as an only cat. It would also be better to control his diet too as he does have bouts of vomiting from time to time but various tests and changes to his diet have not identified the cause. He is very happy to see visitors and go to them for a fuss, usually because they are telling him what a handsome chap he is so he likes to let them get a closer look! George doesn’t have brilliant eye sight so he can take a swipe at you if you make a sudden movement and startle him so he would be best suited to a quieter home with adults. He likes to take a turn in the garden on a nice day but is happy to spend most of his time indoors on a bed or sofa snoozing. Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.
- Foster in BristolA special home is needed for Ace as he has a heart condition, most likely hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. At the moment he's on anticoagulants and will require regular vet checks and possibly further meds in years to come. Sadly this condition will shorten his lifespan. BWCR are happy to fund his meds and check ups at Fernlea vets in Kingswood or Hanham to ensure he gets the best possible care. Ace is a gentle mini panther, he likes the occasional cuddle (on his terms) and enjoys being around you. He is a purr box and his eyes are stunning! He also love a good belly rub! He is very good friends with Bella and they need to stay together. Little is known about his background but Ace would love a quiet home with a garden to explore. Bella is a bundle of mischief; she loves to play (particularly if the game involves a ball or feather) and she will explore everything she can! Bella is best friends with Ace so they must stay together. Please read the information on Ace as he has a heart condition. Bella would benefit from a quiet home with outside space to explore. She isn’t a lap cat but she likes to be in the same room as you and she will come up to you when she wants a stroke! On occasion Bella can get a bit over excited and try to play with your fingers. She is learning that fingers are not toys but for this reason she would be better with older rather than younger children.
- Foster in BristolOur lovely Fern is 9 years old and was adopted a few years ago but sadly, her owners circumstances have changed and she's come back to us. She's a sweet girl, not quite a lap cat but does love a fuss, especially head strokes and tickles under her chin. She enjoys her food too! She's not a needy cat and would suit someone at work all day as she'll happily entertain herself with a potter in a safe garden or a snooze! She does have a flea allergy so needs a monthly vet- prescribed treatment plus she does get stressed by children and other animals and can overgroom so needs a nice, quiet adult-only home this time round. Neutered, chipped plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance.
