Hello, my name is Duke

Duke

A little bit about me..

Duke is a very handsome chap, about 5/6 years old. He came to us having been found wandering the streets, scavenging for food. 

As you can probably tell from the pictures, Duke has been on the streets for a while, all his lovely white coat is disheveled and dirty, but still a vast improvement on when he first arrived. So yes there is a bit of cosmetic cleaning up to do but soon he will be a bright Persil white!  Who knows how long Duke has been fending for himself and what dangers he had had to endure. He was reluctant to be stroked when he first arrived , but he has quickly realised that some people are actually rather nice and can be trusted. He is improving daily and is becoming a very affectionate fellow. New owners must be prepared for some un-sureness when he first arrives in his new home.

Somewhere along the way Duke has contracted the FIV virus and so he is now looking for a home as an indoor cat. he will need lots of toys and games to play, to keep his mind and body active if he is to live indoors. Duke would best suit a home with adult owners and he must live as the only pet.

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?
