Arlo, a cat born with a facial deformity, is looking for a special home with a new family.

One-year-old Arlo is looking for a loving new home after being taken in by Cats Protection’s Bridgend Adoption Centre.

He was handed into the centre earlier this month after his previous owner was not able to keep him in rented accommodation.

While staff say Arlo’s deformity may give him a shorter life expectancy, he is currently happy, playful and able to lead a normal life.

Cats Protection’s Bridgend Adoption Centre Manager Sue Dobbs said: “Arlo is an absolute sweetheart, and he’s charmed all the staff at the centre. He may look a bit different from other cats, but he’s got a lot of love to give, and is full of fun and mischief.

“We’re not able to tell what has caused Arlo’s facial deformity but it doesn’t seem to be causing him a problem at the moment. He has had a thorough vet check, and although he seems healthy, we can’t rule out any further internal issues, which may cause a problem later on. It’s also possible that he may have a shorter life expectancy.

“We really hope this won’t put off prospective owners, as Arlo is such a lovely cat and deserves a happy and loving home.”

If you would like to offer Arlo the loving new home he deserves, please contact Bridgend Adoption Centre on or telephone 01656 724 396.
