If you are interested in offering Winston a loving forever home then please complete our adoption enquiry form via the link below and we will be in contact:
Poor Winston was straying in a really terrible area of Birmingham - he has been rescued from a life on the streets but he has tested positive for FIV and will therefore need an indoor home or ideally we would love to find him one where he could have a cat proofed garden or catio to give him access to the fresh air that he loves whilst keeping him safe.
FIV basically means that Winstonsi's immune system is compromised. There is a lot of ignorance around FIV, but most FIV cats in a loving home live a normal, happy and long life, without needing any special treatment or medication. There is lots of useful information via this link:
Winston was extremely shell shocked when he came into care, he was very frightened and would cower away from human contact, but as you can see , with a bit of tlc and knowing he is safe and loved he is starting to blossom and show what a lovely boy he is :-)
He will be frightened again when he first moves and will need a quiet (preferably adult only) home who will be able to set him up in one room initially and give him time and patience to settle in. It should only take a couple of weeks before you start to see the lovely cat that he is.
