Poor Fern hasn’t had much interest from potential adopters
A friendly cat who has spent nearly 160 days in RSPCA care is looking for his forever home but sadly has seen little interest from potential adopters.
Fern, a three-year-old, Abyssinian crossbreed with black, silver and tabby cat markings, came into the care of the RSPCA Warrington, Halton & St Helens Animal Centre in April from a multi-cat household.
Susanne Fearnley, cat care and rehoming coordinator at the branch, said: “Fern is a very curious, playful and very energetic cat. He likes plenty of attention and enrichment to keep his brain active and he likes to be involved in everything as he is quite intelligent and inquisitive. This can lead him to being a bit full on at times!
“He is a very sociable, chatty boy, who is friendly and affectionate towards people. He has been with us for 159 days and been up for rehoming for two months without any luck. He’s not had a bad start to life, his previous owner just had too many cats to look after.
“Fern is an Abyssinian crossbreed and although every cat is unique, some evidence indicates that Abyssinians have a tendency to be bolder and more active than other breeds. This would go some way towards explaining his spirited, inquisitive nature.
“We are looking for a quiet experienced and adult-only home with no other cats and a new owner who will allow him to settle in at his own pace.
“Once settled, he will need a safe place outside to explore away from busy roads and railways. Due to Fern possibly never being outside before, we feel this needs to be a more rural area as he may not be very streetwise.”
This friendly chatty boy is full of life and energy and loves playing with and chasing his toys.
Susanne added: “We are unsure why he has had such little interest other than possibly the current cost of living situation meaning that rehoming has slowed down. We really hope we can find the perfect home for Fern, he really deserves his second chance at happiness.”
