Colin is a complex soul, after years of fending for himself, getting into numerous fights with the other local toms, he’s had his fair share of battles. Now though, Colin needs stability and a home where he can be shown that some humans are kind and offer nice things.

At the moment Colin is still very unsure of his surroundings. He does like to have a fuss and will purr, but can be spooked and overwhelmed easily and will nip (sometimes more than a nip) or give you a whack when he feels scared. We think he is also a little bored at the shelter, and have found that he enjoys playing with his snakey feather fishing rod toy more than his other toys!

He also enjoys the simple comforts of a cosy bed and radiator after a long while on the streets. However, because of his time on the streets, he is very possessive of him food and some items like his blankets and beds.

Colin was diagnosed with FIV upon his health check. This means Colin will need to live indoors from now on and be the only cat in the home. We feel Colin would be happier in a roomy house rather than a flat or smaller abode with ideally a very secure garden (as in, strictly no cats in or out!).

Colin will need an adult only home with experienced owners whose expectations are not too high. Colin has been trialled in a home with one adult, but got very bossy and dominating, so we feel strongly that he may need outdoor time, which is limited to a garden/catio only he will be in.

If you feel you have the experience to give Colin a great life and happy home, please complete our application form. Serious applications only please.
