Lovely Tinker is looking for a special home

04 March 2018
Lovely Tinker is looking for a special home Tinker is a very loving cat looking for a special home. He came to us as a stray in poor condition, unneutered and underweight. He is now doing much better following his castration and a good diet. Tinker loves people and when he is fussed he will thank you with lots of purring! As Tinker came from life as a stray we don't know how old he is and our guess is around 10 years old. He can be a little stiff on his back legs and is currently benefiting from some pain relief prescribed by our vets but this older boy would make the perfect companion for an understanding person. 

Our vets carried out blood tests to assess his health and have found that Tinker is carrying FIV, which means his immune system isn't quite up to scratch. This virus is passed from cat to cat when fighting or mating. Having FIV means that Tinker must be homed as an indoor cat with no outdoor access in order to stop the spread of the virus and to keep him fit and healthy. His other blood tests did not show any problems with his liver or kidneys. 

More information on FIV can be found here: https://www.cats.org.uk/uploads/documents/cat-care-leaflets-2013/VG09_Feline_Immunodeficiency_Virus_(FIV)_and_Feline_Leukaemia_Virus_(FeLV).pdf

If you think you could offer Tinker the home he deserves then please call us on 0345 647 2185 and we can arrange a home visit.
