Caturday: Another plea for Tutheran, who desperately needs a home

It’s very nearly 2017 and one of my New Year’s resolutions has to be to find a home for this boy... as soon as possible. He’s not getting any younger and I’m sure the cold weather of the last few days can’t be good for a cat who has to live outside. He’s not an easy cat to rehome for the following reasons:
  • He’s black and apparently these are the hardest cats to rehome (not sure why, I LOVE black cats!)
  • He’s probably about five or six years old, so not a cute kitten
  • If I’m being honest, he is a bit thick
  • He was neutered late so retains his alpha male tendencies, which means he is aggressive towards other cats, particularly other males – this is why he can’t stay here with us
  • He’s very nervous and can occasionally lash out
  • He’s never, as far as we know, lived indoors, so presumably isn’t litter trained and will also go mad when cooped up... initially.

Ok, those are the negatives. Here are the positives:
  • Six months ago he was completely wild and wouldn’t go near a human at all. He is now (mostly) tame, so think how much tamer he could become in a loving, patient home?
  • He loves being stroked
  • He used to lash out when we attempted to stroke him... this has turned into a gentle pat when you stop stroking him... in a “more please” kind of way
  • He’s neutered and, at the same time, tested negative for FIV
  • He purrs like a tractor
  • When you pick him up (yes, we can even pick him up now!), he purrs and snuggles under your chin
  • He loves sitting on your knee
  • He’s been treated for fleas!

So what we’re looking at is a potentially perfect pet, but who needs a patient home with:
  • Cat people – you have to know what you’re getting into, possible aggression initially, possible “accidents”... until it’s safe to let him out
  • No small children, due to his nervous nature and therefore potential for aggression
  • No other cats, unless you can keep them separate
  • Preferably no dogs
  • A reasonable distance from my house, so he isn’t tempted to return.

Please, please, please share this post so we can find Tutheran a home for the New Year! It’s vital that this is with a cat person who is willing to put in the work to give him a forever home. Thank you!
