Affectionately known as ‘Howard the Coward’, this boy stole our hearts from the second we met him! Living outside as an unneutered tom, a kind family had been feeding him for some time. They were happy to keep doing so, providing we could get him neutered (which we did), but a post op attack from another local cat proved that Howard was not cut out for the outdoor life!
Howard came into the centre scared and confused, with such a sad expression, but he’s now a big softie who loves nothing more than curling up on your lap. He does have a slightly nervous temperament from his ordeals outside, so can be a little shy at first. He also like you to sit with him when he eats so that he feels safe no other cats will steal his food! But in a home environment, we just know he’ll be a wonderful companion cat.
He’d still like outdoor access, though he’ll probably not go too far. He’s not keen on haring his space with other cats – either he’s wary about them based on past encounters, or he simply wants all your attention!
Please Note: We have recently discovered that Howard is a carrier of cat flu. This will mean that he will show symptoms from time to time which will need to be managed. However he can still go on to live a long and happy life if you know how to deal with the occasional flare ups.
