Charlie is a happy little boy who loves to have chin scratches all day everyday if he could. He loves to come and snuggle up next to you at night time but is not sure about sitting on your knee just yet. 

He isn’t used to being picked up but he is getting better and better everyday.

Charlie has had cat flu but is much better now, he still has a little sniffly nose and croaky meow, but vets are happy that no antibiotics are needed and his lungs are clear. He does have a nebuliser daily which he loves to have when there is a Lick-e-lix in there. This won’t be necessary long term. His 3rd eyelids are still out more than usual but vet has no concerns.

Charlie is starting to learn how to play and gets very excited with his toys and cat nip. He loves his food and will happily follow you around until you give him some! He also has a very cute bunny hop going on when he plays! 


Charlie had been a stray at a nursing home for four years. He became very poorly so the RSPCA were called.  He was in a terrible state. His eyes and nose were gunky, he was badly matted and needed several teeth extracted.  He struggled to breath too. He spent a few weeks in isolation at the lovely cattery we use where he received lots of TLC then he moved to a lovely foster home.  

He was already neutered. He’s now been tested negative for FIV and FeLV, micro-chipped and vaccinated.  His new family will need to continue to care for him because it can take months for flu sufferers to fully recover. 

He needs a pet free home, older children would be fine.  A home where he can explore the outdoors.
