Derek has been rehomed!


Derek is a very placid cat who is quite timid with strangers initially, but as soon as he knows he’s not under any threat, will soon relax enough to ask to sit on your lap (he extends a paw towards your knee and awaits your signal – a pat
on the knee – to allow him up).

He is quite happy being handled and enjoys being stroked, rewarding you with loud appreciative purrs. He has had some limited experience with children and babies and he has never demonstrated any aggressive behaviour and can tolerate quite ‘robust’ play. He’ll occasionally give his younger housemate – The Duke – a left hook if he’s had enough play, but claws are never revealed.

Derek is used to the outdoors and gets on well with other cats in the neighborhood. Derek has been rather spoiled and is slightly overweight so is currently on a diet!

      Hi Elise, thank you for your interest in Derek. Please could you complete a homing application form. The link can be found on our rehoming page, underneath the photos of the cats, under the heading “How to adopt a rescue kitten/cat – Step 1”. Our homing officer will be in contact with you soon.

    I’ve completed the homing application form and wonder if we might be able to come and meet Derek at some point? He looks fab 🙂
