Hello, my name is Dexter


A little bit about me..

Dexter is one of many cats signed over to the branch on welfare grounds from a multi cat household. 

As with many multi animal households, most of the individuals receive very little one to one attention and can be wary and timid. Dexter is one such cat, he can be nervous around people, especially those he hasn't met before, he adores other cats and desperately longs to have some feline buddies to snuggle up with and be his pals. 

Dexter is likely to be very nervous and hide away a lot when he first arrives, he isn't a malicious boy and has recently started to show how loving and affectionate he can be. He now comes running out of his bedroom to greet those he knows and will roll about and have belly rubs, though he still isn't desperately keen on being picked up. We are confident in the right home with some gentle coaxing and reassurance he will soon find his feet. 

He must go to a home with other cats, he simply loves their company, especially a female, and we think it would do him the world of good to have a friend to show him the ropes. Dexter must have a garden to explore at his new place.

Requirements to adopt me

Annual costs of having a cat...

Can you afford a cat?

The cost of owning a cat would be in the region of £360 per year as a rough guide.

  • Can you afford £5 per week for cat food?
  • Can you afford £10 per month for pet insurance? Pet insurance in an essential part of being a pet owner and with a cats lifespan being 16 years upwards you need to be ready for the unexpected – what will you do if your pet develops an illness? Can you find the £150 plus to diagnose the problem? Modern veterinary care means that it is possible to treat serious injuries and illnesses successfully, but such treatment can be complex and very expensive. Vets bills continue to rise and pet insurance will give you the peace of mind that should something happen to your pet, bills will not a problem.
  • Can you afford the vet bills throughout your cat’s life?
  • Can you afford your cat’s annual vaccination booster of around £35 per year?
  • Can you afford to board your cat or arrange for friends or family to look after your cat while you are on holiday?
  • Can you afford regular preventative treatment against fleas and worms?
