Could you be the perfect family for Henry?
Tabby cat Henry was found wandering the streets alone in Ipswich and was taken in by pet charity Blue Cross, who found he had no microchip.
Staff at the charity’s Wherstead centre discovered that Henry has poor sight and hearing – but that doesn’t stop him living a happy and healthy life.
They’re now looking for a quiet and loving home for the 14-year-old cat – one where he can spend his days snoozing and playing with some extra support from owners to help him navigate his new surroundings.
Clare Williamson, Centre Manager at Blue Cross Suffolk, said: ‘Poor Henry was found wandering all alone a bit dazed and confused.
‘His finder said they had seen lots of people just walk past him and ignore him, so they scooped him up and contacted us for help.
‘He’s got poor sight and is quite hard of hearing but he doesn’t let this stop him from getting around and he absolutely loves a good fuss.
‘He just needs a patient new owner who will give him the time he needs to adjust to the smells and sounds of his new home.
‘As Henry loves the sunshine, a new home with a safe secure outside area where he can explore under supervision would be perfect.’
Henry will need a home where he’s the only pet, without any young children.
‘He will need a bit of time to settle in and to get used to the layout of his new home,’ Claire adds.
‘It would be a huge help for Henry if household furniture and his possessions, such as his food bowl and litter tray, are kept in the same place so he can build up a mental map of his home.
‘This big, noisy world can feel rather scary and overwhelming to a cat like him and we’d love to find him a forever home where he knows he is safe and loved.’
