This is the very handsome Winter, he arrived at Millbrook having been found as a stray last year and no-one has claimed him so he needs a new home.
When Winter arrived he was poorly with cat 'flu so has spent the past few weeks getting better, his new owners must be aware of this and be prepared for potential future bouts of this (although the chances are very slim). Winter does have runny eye every now and then, it just needs wiping to keep it cleared up - he is very good to have this done, and even seems to enjoy the attention!!!
Winter is a funny boy, he absolutely loves a bit of fuss and attention, he enjoys being groomed and is very playful, however he does scratch hands quite often and if he catches you off guard he does it quite hard at times.
We think that Winter is a little bit hard of hearing and also that his vision isn't 100% (which is a possibly reason for his scratchy outbursts) and for this reason he will need to live in a safe indoor environment, with no access to the outside world.
His new owners must think outside the box in terms of his welfare and stress levels, cats that live indoors can easily get bored so Winter will need plenty of physical and mental stimulation from his new family to keep him happy.
Winter will prefer a home without any children and due to his previous 'flu infection it's probably best that he is the only cat in his new home (although if your cat has had 'flu we can discuss the possibility of them living together - although this may be difficult as Winter needs to stay indoors and if the other cat goes outside it could cause problems).
Please ask us about Winter, he is a delightful young cat with a fantastic character and to the right people he will be a wonderful pet.
