RuebenReservedChesterfield & District

This is Reuben and I think you must agree he is a stunning cat.
He has been with us now for about 6 weeks slowly recovering from a really bad case of cat flu and a horrendous eye infection. We really thought he was going to lose his eye at one point as it looked so red and sore and painful but after many weeks of intensive care which included twice daily eye drops, for over 2 weeks, the vet and nurses have managed to save his eye.
He was brought to our attention by a member of the public as she had spotted him following the one remaining unneutered female feral cat that we have being trying to trap for a while.
Although he was obviously suffering he still remained a bit elusive, as quite timid. We knew the only way to get near him was to try to trap him.
The trap was all setup but in the end we didn't need to trap him as he was so poorly he collapsed at the ladies feet and she quickly scooped him up and get him into a carrier. He was just so ill he couldn't struggle. I think he had just given himself up to us because he was so weak.
We took him immediately to the vets as he was struggling to breath and his left eye looked horrendous.
Several weeks, and many vet bills later he is this handsome cat once again. This was no quick fix but it is what we are about.
Reuben is finally, after all our hard work, ready for homing.
He is about 4 and half years old.
He really isn't doing well in a pen and sits yearning for that outdoor space. I know he is dying for me to let him out into the garden.
He loves watching the birds through the day and the hedgehog through the night. He has, however an afternoon nap not unlike myself.
Don't be fooled because even though he is a big boy he is still quite timid and wary of new people.
Slowly, he has started coming to me for a head rub and even rolled on his back today bearing his tummy. Still I won't be doing a tummy rub in a hurry as we all know no
