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).
