Hello, my name is Ernie

Ernie

A little bit about me..

Lovely boy Ernie can’t wait to get back into a home, sit on a lap and just purr the evening away.  He is looking for an adult or family home with children over 7 years old, where he will be the only pet

His two favourite things are to eat and to sleep while having a good head massage.

He has been a superstar since entering our care back in June. He was found by a member of public bleeding quite badly from his ear and looking a little bewildered. The kind person took him to a local vet who then called the RSPCA.

Ernie had a large polyp growing inside his ear and has since had a major operation to remove this followed by 2 major dentals, removing all but a couple of teeth. He has purred his way through all of this.

There is a possibility that the polyp may re-grow in the future and, if this is the case, he will need  ablation surgery which could be carried at our RSPCA hospital.

If you think you could be the perfect forever home for Ernie, we look forward to hearing from you.

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?
