MR WINEHOUSE - IF169-15
Date of Birth: 14th May, 2012
Rescue Date: 17th Nov, 2015
Location: Brentwood, WA
Mr Winehouse is a domestic short hair tabby male cat.
Mr Winehouse arrived in the pound from a multi-cat household, where he is believed to have been responsible for at least one pregnancy of another cat. He was very scared in the pound, and once broken out into temporary foster care he became increasingly aggressive. He has now moved to a new foster home where he has relaxed and is now a big smoochy bum. He is also now desexed, which probably helped! We feel though, that the thing that he hated the most was being apart from other cats.
Mr Winehouse has in the past shown some aggression, and we think one of the things that set him off was being confined, and being away from other cats. He has become a lot happier since returning to the company of other felines, and not being alone in his own room. His ears are now completely NOT flat and he is a happy, loving boy. He is great with other cats, and even babysits the kittens of another cat he is in care with! He hasn't shown any sign of being worried about the dogs in his new foster home. Mr Winehouse is just about the coolest cat we have ever seen!
LIKES / DISLIKES
Mr Winehouse dislikes being "the only cat" - while we're unsure how he would go with male adult cats, he is absolutely happy in company with friendly adult female cats, as wells kittens of any sex. He loves to curl up and take care of his friend's seven kittens, as you can see in some of the photos of him! He enjoys pats from his foster carer, and the aggression of old has entirely disappeared.
Mr Winehouse may take some time to get used to a new home - but we know for sure that he needs to be in a home with at least one or tow other cats in it! Even a home with a kitten would be great for him.
*Adoption fee helps to cover the cost of sterilisation, microchipping, vaccination and flea / worming treatment
Mr Winehouse has a bit of a weight concern, and his diet has to be strictly monitored.
Send an email to email@example.com to request a meet & greet with the cat or kitten you are interested in. If the meet & greet goes well, adoption can go ahead. We must receive the full adoption fee plus a completed adoption contract before the cat can go to his or her trial home. Please email us to discuss all the steps required to adopt.
