Can you offer our special boy his perfect home? Buster had been straying for at least a year before one of our volunteers was able to befriend him enough to catch him. He was flea treated, wormed and bathed and when he was finally able to see a vet for his chip and snip, he tested positive for FIV. This was quite a blow as this lovely lad is still fairly young at around 3-4 years old and has been used to roaming over a large area.
Although a very scared boy, Buster has never attempted to bite or scratch as he has had tablets put down his throat to worm him and liquid squirted in his ears to clean them. Even during his well overdue bath, he endured it with good grace and not too much wriggling (there is a video!) and smelled much the sweeter afterwards. He is still wary and needs to get used to living in a home as currently he is in one room as he can’t mix with other cats so he will need a patient owner willing to do a bit of work to help him gain confidence and to understand what it is to be a domestic moggy. Whilst still shy, once you start to stroke him he is soon purring and loves a good chin scratch. He will even sit quietly on his foster mum’s knee for an hour or so in the evening.
Buster will be due his second vaccination 9th July and should then be ready to go. He needs to be in a home with adults and ideally with access to a suitable cat-secure garden or catio so he can still get some fresh air and exercise safely.
Neutered, chipped, vaccinated plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance. Insurance won’t cover FIV but there are generally few vet bills- BWCR will cover the cost of any FIV-related issues at one of our vets.
