About Melvin

Breed: Domestic Shorthair crossbreed Age: 6 years (approx) Sex: Male

Melvin is the best cat in the world. Fact. He is such a loving, affectionate, cuddley, playful cat that we are certain you will fall in love in a heartbeat.

Melvin is approx 6 years old when he came to our attention after a member of the public found him dragging himself along. It seems that Melvin had most likely been hit by a car and suffered a badly fractured leg. To save him he required a ‘femoral head and neck excision’ so he could regain his mobility again. The surgery was a massive success and after a few weeks of recovery we began to finally see his playful side!

“Melvin is the easiest cat we’ve ever lived with. He is so polite and quiet but so affectionate too. He’s like a mini dog in many ways and is our favourite cat we’ve fostered so far. Melvin loves to be close to you. He enjoys being cuddled, spooned or to lie on top of you (and on your face!). He likes to follow you around but will also sit quietly on a blanket and you barely notice him. Despite having been stray he is very polte with food and waits patiently. And just to add to his dog like characteristics he likes rolling on his back and having his tummy tickled!”

Melvin is around 6 years of age. He is FIV positive and will need to be a single house cat. He will need a home that is spacious in order to keep him mentally well and physically active. For more info about FIV please see: We are looking to find Melvin a home where he can live out his days with lots of love and attention. If you can offer Melvin a loving, spacious home then please get in touch.
