Hi, I'm 'Watty' Watkins, a rather large and handsome boy who came into WAR in February.
I'd been living as a stray for about a year, but was being fed and watered by the lovely Watkins family (see what WAR did there). They called WAR who came and picked me up and so my new life began. I have to admit that I wasn't cut out for the life of a stray - I'm a proper scaredy cat, a sensitive soul, and all I want is a quiet life.
So, my foster mum says that after a nervy start I'm now the most loving foster cat she's had (and believe me she's had lots!). I love laps, and chests, cuddles, chin, paw, nose and belly rubs and holding hands, though I'm not so keen on being picked up and I don't really play much. She says I'm a timewaster but the best companion.
Here at WAR they tell us we have to be 100% honest, so, I'm FIV+ which means that I need to be indoors and can't be with other cats, which is fine because I've no desire to go out now and human company is all I need. I just love a comfy place to watch the birds out of the window. I'm happy and generally healthy but do have a problem with runny poo and sometimes I'm a bit sick at night. I've had all the tests and scans and it looks like I have some food allergies and a bit of IBD. But my mum has found several foods that I can eat now and I am a perfect litter tray user.
I'm very nervous and retreat to my hidey spot when people visit, although I'm getting braver with my regular visitors. So as happy as me and my foster mum are, we need to make the difficult decision to look for a special forever home, so that she is free to help more cats like me.
I'd like a quiet indoor home without children or other pets and ideally without many scary visitors. And with people who, like me, love company and are around for lots of the day to love me ALL THE TIME .
I'm neutered, chipped and have had my first jab, so should be good to go early/mid September when I've had my second jab. Lots of love, Watkins x
