Boris

Boris is still living with us in our front garden.  He's very happy and very fat.

Boris was either lost, abandoned or dumped a year ago in our neighbourhood.  I got to know him, got him neutered, and found him a forever home.  Sadly his new people thought him too noisy and greedy so I took him back.

He's now had his shots too, and is ready to find a real forever home.  Boris is probably around 3 years old, which makes it tougher to place him than a kitten but he tonnes of personality.  Boris looooves people.  He purrs all the time, adores cuddles, and likes nothing better than being fussed over. He is also super clean.

I've turned down a few offers because Boris has some rather specific needs.

Boris wants to be an outdoor cat with indoor privileges - so no apartments or home on busy roads.
Boris does eat A LOT.  So reckon a fullsized tin of cat food every two days as well as four handfuls of cat biscuits.
Boris does talk a lot.  I like it, because I like to chat.  Also he's not a whiner, he just likes to hang out and chat.


If you know of someone suitable, pass the word?

He sounds wonderful! I like the idea of adopting an older cat because then you know what they are like, their personality, and because they are more sedate. (not the crazy rambunctiousness of young kitties, so therefore household damages can be minimized.)

I love his colour and markings! He is a really handsome cat. I'm glad you make sure the potential home is suitable for him before letting him go.

I would truly give a lot to have Boris. He is just mommy's cup of tea. If I could I would please her with a new brofurr.

Oh Boris is such a cutie! It is too bad the people who took him didn't keep him, but at least he was able to get back to you and not just abandoned! We hope he finds the perfect forever home very soon!!

Boris seems like quite an individual. I hope you can find a person for him who appreciates his personality.

Boris is very furrtunate to have you watching out for him. And you go right ahead and be very choosy about who you let adopt him...he's depending on you to make a wise choice!

Ah, we were wondering who Boris is and here's the explanation. It's great he can hang out at your place until the right forever home is found.
Many purrs!
