About me

Hello, my name is Rex. I’m a shy 4 year old black and white male cat who is looking for a family who will help me to build my confidence.

I’m finding life quite overwhelming at the moment so I much prefer to hide and watch the world, rather than get too involved with anything. I didn't even really like having my picture taken, which is why I don't look very impressed in my photos! The kind people at Blue Cross say it’s important that I come out of my shell in my own time, which I appreciate.

I have only ever lived indoors and right now I don’t feel ready to explore the world, but maybe I will someday. I have lived with other cats before and could do again if they were friendly and happy to have me around. I think dogs would be a bit too much for me to live with though.

I haven’t lived with children before, but maybe I could do if they were gentle and quiet around me. I can startle when unpredictable things happen so I need the whole family to understand why it’s important that I am given time and space to settle into a new home.

If you think you could give me the home I’m looking for, please speak to a member of the rehoming team today.

Help Rex to find a happy home with the gift of pet sponsorship!

Does your loved one have room in their heart, but not in their home, for a pet of their own? Blue Cross sponsorship is the perfect present for animal lovers.

Sponsor a pet as a gift for your loved one from as little as 70p a week, and they will receive monthly updates from real homeless pets in our care who are just waiting to meet their new families. Your chosen friend or family member will also receive a downloadable certificate from each of the dogs, cats, small pets and horses they’ve helped to find loving new homes.
