FEMALE ONLY HOME PREFERRED
Dutch is estimated to be around 3 years old and is a classic black and white tuxedo cat. Although Dutch has been in our care since the end of January he has sadly spent many weeks at the vets after being found stray with an awful, large cat bite wound to the side of his face. We see a lot of injuries like this – almost always in un-neutered males – but Dutch’s wound was quite exceptional. It must have been quite a fight. Dutch is in a foster home and this is what his carers have to say about him:
“Dutch is a real softie with a very sweet nature. It is easy to see how he was defeated in a street fight as he is very gentle and not particularly strapping, so he must have been really picked on by the neighbourhood tom cat bully. While he can be quite scared of new people, when he’s warmed up he is a proper lap cat through and through – even sitting on his foster carers laps under the table while they eat their dinner! Dutch really just wants to be around his people and show them how much he loves them with adorably hoarse meows and plenty of snuggles. Dutch is the type of character who just makes your heart melt. To think what untold suffering he has gone through yet he remains such a gentle, sweet little boy.)”
Dutch has always been an incredibly loving and affectionate cat with all of our female staff and volunteers. We did not know until we rehomed him to a male couple that he is frightened of most men. We don’t know what has occurred in his past life to make him so scared, but it is a genuine fear. He is now in a female only foster home loving life. Dutch would like this relaxed, quiet home without any other cats replicating. He will need a safe outdoor space to play in once he’s settled into his new home but he may not venture too far.
