HERBIEBedford & Biggleswade

Hi, meet Herbie. He is a short-haired, ginger & white male. We estimate him to be approx 3-4 years old.

Herbie has led a very hard life, and life has not been very kind to him. He was taken to the vets as a stray with an eye injury. Unfortunately his eye could not be saved and the decision was made to remove it. The vets then asked for our help in taking care of him and finding him a new home.

Herbie has also had to have the tips of his ears removed due to early skin cancer, this had to be done to prevent the condition getting worse, he does have cute (but little) ears now.

Sadly everything he has been through has totally knocked any confidence he had and he is now a shy and timid cat. He is obviously desperate for attention and love, but just doesn't know how to accept it. He really now needs to be back in a warm home where he can start to relax and bond with his new family, which we feel will give him back some of his confidence.

Herbie is looking for a very special home that can accept him as he is and give him the time and space to be the loving boy we know he is. He will need to be an indoor cat only, due to the fact he has reduced vision and has not coped very well with this. He will need a home where there are no other pets and no young children.

Anyone who thinks they could offer this amazing boy his ideal forever home would be encouraged to meet him and then discuss his needs with his fosterer. He will need a special diet so new owners would need to be prepared to supply this.
