About me

Hello, I’m Billy,

I am on the lookout for a special home with an understanding owner who will allow me the time and space I need to settle in. I am worried by new environments which means I need to feel safe when I go to my new home. I would need a quiet room to call my own until I have found my feet.

Once I feel more settled, I love to spend time with my human friends, I do enjoy lots of head tickles and I have the biggest purrrr! Sometimes I like to roll over and have my belly tickled – I am a big softie!

I love to curl up next to you on the sofa and fall asleep...I must confess I sometimes snore! I would happily stay here all day with you if I had my way. I can be quite playful, and I do enjoy playing with my rod toys and chasing a ping pong ball around!

When I’m not playing or having fuss I can be found staring longingly out of the windows or napping in the sun. I would love my new home to have a quiet, secure garden where I can wander around and explore in peace; I may need you to come outside with me initially as I build up my confidence but I’m sure I’ll soon be happy to chill out with you whilst you do some gardening or read in the evening sun.

My new home will need to be quiet without too many comings and goings and I would need to be the only pet. I would prefer not to live with children.

For the right home I will make a great companion, I can't wait to start my new adventure!

Lots of love,

Billy x
