When Billy’s owners had to move home, with a heavy heart they asked us to take Billy into care because their new home was, sadly, too close to a main road. Originally Billy was going to live with the next-door neighbours in the environment he was used to but that plan fell through at the last minute.

He’s a gentle cat looking for a quiet home – still quite shocked from the position in which he finds himself he will be a little bit of a ‘slow starter’ and will need a little time to blossom in his new home. He would suit a beginner cat-owner with reasonable patience.

Billy is a typical indoor/outdoor cat and used to a cat flap. He’s used his litter try perfectly whilst in foster care (we don’t allow foster cats outside.) Billy’s in good health and we’ve restarted his vaccinations.

As with all our cats, Billy is wormed, flead, microchipped, and neutered. To help offset these costs we respectfully ask for a minimum donation of £85 towards the cost of his treatment. And all Silk Cats come with four weeks, complimentary PetPlan insurance – we recommend you consider arranging your own insurance at the end of the four weeks – there is a guide here: About Insurance


If you think you could offer a home, please complete our online registration form – please note we only rehome to safe environments (no busy roads etc) and no more than half an hour away in case post-adoption support is needed. 

Note – under current government regulations and using DEFRA approved guidance we are still rehoming but using strict, covid secure, procedures.
