Unwanted Timmy has been in foster care for more than a year now.

The nine-year-old has perhaps been overlooked due to his age and because he suffers from a skin condition.

Welwyn Hatfield Cats Protection spokeswoman Nicole Edson, said: “Timmy is a gorgeous cat with a sweet, gentle nature.

“Timmy has been in our care for over a year now and although he is shy at first, with time and patience, he gradually gains confidence and his personality starts to flourish.

“Timmy is very affectionate and loves being stroked, rubbing his face against you, and will also happily sit on your lap, or lie on you if you’re reading a book in bed.

“Once he feels settled, he also likes to play and will pounce on things that move in front of him.

“Timmy can occasionally suffer from a dermatitis like irritated skin, which is successfully treated with medication, so he needs understanding and patient owners who will be happy to care for Timmy and love him no matter what.”

Timmy would like a quiet home where he can feel safe and where he would be the only pet.

He would also like to have safe access to the outdoors once he has had a suitable settling in period.

If you could rehome Timmy, contact the Cats Protection on 0345 371 1855 or email info@welwynhatfield.cats.org.uk
