'Britain's Loneliest Cat' Is Still Looking For A New Home

'Britain's Loneliest Cat' Is Still Looking For A New Home

An adorable feline has spent 125 days waiting for a new home earning himself the heartbreaking name 'Britain's loneliest cat'.

Twizzle currently resides at Battersea Cats and Dogs Home, where he recently spent his eighth birthday.

On average, cats spend 23 days at Battersea before being rehomed, but poor Twizzle has been waiting months.

Battersea's Cattery Team Leader, Rosa Steele said: "Twizzle is such a lovely cat and it's a huge shame that he has been waiting for so long to find a home.

"He is an intelligent, playful cat and has a lot to offer as a pet.

"What better birthday gift could you give one of our cats than a loving new home?"

Go on, do it.

Poor Twizzle was brought to the cattery after he turned up at someone's home 'scared and hungry and not able to fend for himself very well'. He later returned with a cut to his face, prompting the 'finder' to take him to the vets. After being checked out by vets he was brought to Battersea Cats and Dogs Home.

Those looking after him since his arrival have said that although he was unsure of people at first he has 'come far since this and made lots of friends with his playful and affectionate nature - and he does love to sit on the laps of his special pals.'

The team at Battersea Cats and Dogs Home think that Twizzle could be overlooked as a pet because he has Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV).

FIV can be passed to other cats - usually via deep bite wounds - and it can make some cats very poorly, however, most do go on to live long lives with no ongoing medical issues.

Nonetheless, a FIV diagnosis could put some owners off, particularly those who already have pet cats.

Owners of cats with FIV need to have a 'cat-proof' garden, but if yours isn't you can speak to a Battersea vet beforehand and get some help and advice.
