The handsome Poirot was handed into the vets as a stray numerous times because of his poor condition – he is allergic to fleas and his owners, despite being advised each time he went home, did nothing about it.
The vets eventually managed to get them to sign him over and now he’s had flea treatment surprise, surprise he’s stopped scratching himself silly, his sores are nearly healed and his fur has grown back 🙂
He’s a sweet boy, very loving after initial shyness and quite calm – some might call it lazy!
He was found, by chance, to be in very mild early renal failure which was lucky as he was put on renal food immediately and his last blood result was improved. He’s about 8 years old and must be on his renal diet for life – cats can go on for years and there’s no reason he shouldn’t too.
He will need 6/9 monthly blood tests which BWCR is happy to fund at Fernlea vets in Bristol.
So..from a life of neglect he’s now looking for a life of love. He’d like a quieter home with no young children or other pets (he hates dogs with a vengeance!) and someone with a strong lap as he’s a hefty cuddle bunny who can cut off your circulation 🤣. Oh and a garden away from busy roads as he likes a mooch.
Neutered, chipped, had first vaccination plus comes with 5 weeks free insurance (renal check ups covered by BWCR).

Poor Maisie is 15 and had lived all her life as a much-loved only pet, until her mum sadly died and she’s been living in people’s gardens ever since. Thankfully she’s now back in the warm and dry with us.
This little girl loves a fuss and is hard to photograph as she keeps headbutting the phone so we had to snap her mid-ablutions!
She’d love another quiet home with someone to give her lots of love and fuss with a garden away from busy roads.

Neutered and chipped father & son who have lived outside for most of their lives but have adjusted well to life indoors. Dad Jack (yellow eyes) is 6 years old and is quite confident and enjoys being stroked while son Joe (blue eyes) is 2 years old and is much shyer but both have lovely natures. Would not suit young children as Joe is so shy but is making good progress and is happy to be around people and is very close to his Dad. Both love their food so are easily won over at feeding time. They were part of a small group of cats and so are very good with other cats.
We found Dusty hiding under a hedge, scared and hungry. He has an old puncture wound to his eye which is fully healed and causes him no pain but means he has no sight in that eye. He has been here with his foster family for 5 months and in that time has been learning how to be picked up and handled, He was very flinchy and wouldn’t let anyone touch his head at first but he is improving all the time. (He loves having his belly rubbed and purrs like a train!) He is now a picture of health. He is a big boy and has a beautiful shiny coat like velvet.
He is so loving and very vocal, we think he is only 1-2 years old. He is an incredible hunter and has already brought me a few presents! He loves to play! And he loves cuddles! He is very funny and a bit clumsy, he regularly falls off things and bumps into furniture when playing, he doesn’t mind a bit, just picks himself up and carries on!
Dusty needs a home with patient owners, preferably adult- only as, although he would never mean to hurt anyone he can be quite boisterous and has a serious set of claws! Ideally his new owners would have experience in cat ownership. He really benefits from a daily routine. He can be quite dominant and territorial with other cats.
He suffers from mild asthma, this doesn’t affect him day to day, he doesn’t need any treatment or medication but he is very affected by cigarette smoke so his home would need to be a smoke-free one. He has been fully checked out including blood tests, x-rays and scans and he has a full clean bill of health apart from the mild asthma.
Dusty is such a character, he is a complete one-off! He would make someone a fantastic pet, He really deserves a good home after a rough start in life.
Dusty is neutered, chipped and vaccinated and comes with 5 weeks free insurance.
