Cheeky, chunky kit in the body of a cat

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

JOHN is a proper chunky monkey. Just look at those cheeks!

Look­ing at him now you wouldn’t be­lieve the trans­for­ma­tion. When he was res­cued on Fe­bru­ary 16, he had been sur­viv­ing as a stray on the streets of north west Lon­don and was found scav­eng­ing for food.

“When John ar­rived, he was in­cred­i­bly hun­gry,” says an­i­mal wel­fare ad­min­is­tra­tor Ch­eryl O’Ke­effe. “He licked his bowl com­pletely clean and was cry­ing for more!

“He had been so fright­ened when we picked him up, but he soon re­alised he was in good hands and was purring all around my legs.”

His friendly de­meanour means he was prob­a­bly once a loved pet, but whether he was aban­doned or just got lost we sadly don’t know, as he wasn’t mi­crochipped. If you are a pet owner, please make sure your pet is mi­crochipped – if they ever get lost it’s the only way to be sure they’ll be re­turned to you, if found.

“John is an in­cred­i­bly friendly cat, he loves peo­ple and lots of at­ten­tion, he is ex­tremely play­ful though he can be a lit­tle bois­ter­ous. Es­sen­tially he is a lit­tle kit­ten in a great big cat’s body”, says Ch­eryl.

“I don’t think he re­alises he’s a big boy now, so he can get a bit car­ried away with his cat games ev­ery now and again, so he needs a home, as the only cat, with adult own­ers or teenage chil­dren who are con­fi­dent around cats.”

John is a lovely boy with tons of per­son­al­ity, but be­ing one of the many black cats in our care, he sadly gets over­looked, as peo­ple seem to pre­fer other colours. It’s es­pe­cially heart­break­ing when the one black cat from a lit­ter of kit­tens is the one left be­hind.

If you would like to adopt a black cat or kit­ten we have all ages and tem­per­a­ments who are look­ing for their for­ever homes.
