Tilly and Steve are a special case and they need to find a permanent home pronto. You can read their stories here. They represent a difficult rehoming challenge for us.
Why you ask?
Well firstly, Tilly only has three legs. She has had a rough trot. And Steve, well he is a cat flu carrier (not uncommon for many cats who have been to pounds or catteries). He may never show symptoms, but we need to be careful not to expose him to other cats.
Secondly, they were fostered in a home where the resident cat became ill with FIP and sadly passed away. This means they have been exposed to this virus and need to be kept away from other cats. There is a possibility they could develop FIP – although unlikely. From an adopter’s point of view, we know this is probably not the ideal scenario. However we also KNOW, HOPE, BELIEVE that a special generous kind-hearted soul is able to open their heart and home to these two cats so that they can have a beautiful life together.
They need a home with no other cats. They are a bonded pair and cannot be separated.
What can you expect? Nothing but ordinary cat behaviour - A pair of delightful attractive cats happy to purr the day away. However we have to alert adopters to the health risks in the interests of being completely transparent in the adoption process. This is our mantra and policy.
If you think you are Tilly and Steve’s special person, please let us know and we can answer any questions you have about these animals.
