Failed fosterer...!

After fostering about nine cats over the last year we have become failed fosterers...at last. Our beautiful Sir Humphrey is the grumpiest cat we've had, lazy, greedy, vet hating, and one-eyed, but he has had such a hard life that we felt his journey should stop with us.

He was booted out of his home when his owner got pregnant. With nowhere to go (and clearly used to the high life) he was not streetwise, and was chased and beaten until a lady took him in. He's ended up with us, and due to an untreated eye infection, he recently had to have it removed. He has been so depressed wearing the horrible cone, but now it has been removed, he is returning to his old self.

So here he is smile

He's lovely! Look at those giant paws! I had a cat with one eye and he coped brilliantly.

He's beautiful, and a lucky boy to have a permanent home with you. It must be hard to let any of them go.

Oh, and toe floofs!

Ah well. Good on Sir Humphrey. smile

When does he have his stitches out?

He's lovely! I do love a good toe floof!

Beautiful! I usually don't like to see people fail but I'm glad you have. I'm sure he'll be so happy in his new home.

He was supposed to have the stitches out on Friday but he attacked the vet! They knew this before his surgery, and used thankfully dissolvable stitches. He did really badly under anaesthetic and we are loathe to put him through it again if we can help it. Apparently he is closer to eight years old rather than three (which is what we were told) so is getting on in years.

He's lovely, and very lucky to have his forever home smile

cozietoesie Sun 25-Sep-16 21:11:06

Dissolvable stitches. Excellent. smile

He looks like a mini lion, not a domestic moggie!

cozietoesie Sun 25-Sep-16 21:12:24

PS - 8 years old is prime of life! smile

He's beautiful, he's a lovely colour.

He's our little apricot puff just don't get too close or the lion comes out

Cozie he is well known at the vets, they all ask after him. I dread to think how badly behaved he was for them - I think they all decided that no one wanted to risk his claws and teeth again, so dissolvable stitches it was wink

Ah he is a handsome chap! I'm pleased you've taken him in, lucky boy.

I can see the lion in him grin
He's lovely though, thank you for keeping him.

Just a little update as he settles into life with us ☺️

Lovely. He looks very pleased with life!

Threetoedsloth Sat 01-Oct-16 09:56:02

Goodness me what a handsome boy he is. His story made my eyes leak. How lovely that he's got his happy ending. Snivels

MargotLovedTom Sat 01-Oct-16 09:59:24

Oh, he is a stunning cat. Hope he adjusts to a one eyed life without too much difficulty.

He is truly magnificent. Gorgeous boy. And having fostered so many you have perfect training to be his slave!
