Snowy‘s a bit of lad – he was adopted as a kitten but as he grew up he decided he couldn’t cope with a family of four, including two young children in a compact home. So, one day, Snowy decided not to return when he was let out and went to the pub just down the road.
He liked it so much and the pub staff fed him well, Snowy decided he quite liked his outdoor home and he lived there for a couple of years in cat bliss. Then lockdown happened (March 2020.) The pub was mothballed and Snowy was forced to wander the streets of Macclesfield town centre searching for food. That was until, one night, a kind member of the public reported him to us, saying he was limping and could we help? Well, do cats purr – of course, we’d help?
Once in our care, the vets told us that his right hind leg had been fractured but had since set itself but was, in fact, useable. Snowy was microchipped but, when the owner was eventually traced, their personal circumstances had changed and so they asked to rehome Snowy.
A little shell shocked when he first arrived, after a couple of weeks Snowy adjusted to his new surroundings and now seeks attention when his fosterers visit his pen. He makes a point of jumping on their lap and loves being stroked – Snowy‘s a little indifferent to playing at the moment but it is early days.
He’s had no difficulty at all adjusting to using a litter tray and the damaged leg seems no handicap at all when it comes to climbing and moving around. Snowy seems a straightforward cat but can get over-excited and would be better placed with someone with some experience of cats.
As with all our cats, Snowy is wormed, flead, microchipped, and neutered before homing. To help offset these costs we respectfully ask for a minimum donation of £85 towards the cost of veterinary 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 (http://www.tiny.cc/about_me.) Please note we only rehome to safe environments (no busy roads etc) and no more than half an hour’s travel 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.
