Fluffy cat who spent a year in care left ‘stressed’ as owners return him again


A ‘stressed’ cat is looking for his perfect home after being sent back to the animal shelter for the second time.

The cat shelter is on the hunt for new owners after Buddy the cat returned to Cat Protection’s shelter in Bracknell.

He was already homed twice but has now been returned again.

Buddy had become distressed because of his feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), despite the homes being great.

The virus means he is unable to go outside or mix with other cats.

But the shelter believes he will still be able to lead a happy and long life, though in a relaxing environment, reports Berkshire Live.

Buddy needs a home with no young children or children visiting, a cat proofed garden (not a Catio), a house not a flat and an owner who is happy to brush him everyday.

Because the poor cat can’t catch a break, Buddy also has a urinary problem and a thorough investigation has suggested that it is stress-related.

Any potential owner will also have to purchase Hills Urinary C/D pouches.

Despite these issues, the shelter said: “He loves sitting on laps, which is amazing, as how he stays on your lap defies logic!”

While he has soiled around the home of his previous owners, he has not had any issues since being with his new fosterer.

He also likes his food and will need a maximum of four pouches a day, with added water.

You will be able to get pet insurance for Buddy but it wouldn’t cover FIV or urinary issues.

His current fosterer is happy to have an in-depth chat with anyone interested so you can decide if it would be a good fit.

If you think your home could provide a loving environment, contact the branch on Adoption@Bracknell.cats.org.uk or on 03453 714 212.
