Hello, I'm Turbo

I'm a 7-year-old Domestic Short Hair from Southampton rehoming centre and I'm looking for my forever home. Please read my profile below to find out more.

About me


I’m Turbo; a handsome boy looking for a special home to call my own. I can be sensitive and easily worried by noises and unfamiliar people, so it has taken me a while to find my paws here at Blue Cross.

I can be quite affectionate and enjoy strokes, and can even be a lap cat at times, but you’ll need to read my body language because I prefer to have strokes when I’m asking for them rather than being touched when I’m not in the mood.

My new home will need to be quiet and free of too much hustle and bustle so I don't become overwhelmed, but if you can take your time, be patient and let me come to you when I feel confident enough, then I have shown that I can develop good relationships.

I have grown in confidence with my friends here at Blue Cross; I have the loudest purr when I'm happy and love to chat away! I also enjoy playing with my toys; this is a good way to build a bond with me. I also love dreamies, so this is another way to my heart!

I would be better suited living with adults who have had cats before, and I will need to be the only pet in my new home as I really don’t like dogs and other cats.

I am used to going outdoors and I do miss this, so I would like a home where I can explore the great outdoors again! I am used to a very rural home and wasn't as happy when my owners moved somewhere more built up so I would benefit from living somewhere with plenty of green space again.

I am such a lovely, funny boy once I have built a bond with you, and I would just love to find a home where I can settle in my own time.

Lots of Purrs and Meows,

Turbo x
