About me


Very pleased to meet you, my name is Sooty, and I am looking for my new home.

It has taken me a little while to find my paws, but I have some very special friends here at the Centre who have helped me settle in… and now I just love love love them. I’ll roll around purring, I’ll nudge their hands for more fuss, and I just can’t get enough belly rubs! I’m still a sensitive boy, but I’ve come on in leaps and bounds since I got here.

I would benefit from a quiet home, and wouldn’t mind if you are out at work during the day; I can catch up on all of my important cat business like snoozing, snacking and patrolling the garden! We could watch TV on the sofa in the evenings, and you can tell me all about your day.

If you are looking for an affectionate, loving, loyal companion, then I’m the cat for you! Yes, I’ll need time to settle initially but I’m worth the wait!!

Love from your new friend,

Sooty x
