Could the Colonel be the cat for you?

Have your say

Meet Colonel Sanders.

The Colonel - or Sandy as his friends call him - was rescued by RSPCA officers back in March, as his owner was, sadly, no longer able to offer him the care he needed.

RSPCA spokesman Adam Spencer said: “On arrival at Sheffield Animal Centre a few months ago, absolutely anything and everything scared this beautiful three-year-old boy, and he didn`t even feel comfortable enough to come out of his den for the first few days of his time with us.

“As always, our fabulous staff got to work comforting him and building up his confidence. We even gave him a curtain in his bedroom for a little extra privacy, to offer him the security he needed, and he really has come on in leaps and bounds in the months since.

“Although he`s still a worried boy at times, Sandy will now sit with his favourite people to enjoy cuddles, some gentle grooming and even enjoys some toy play.

“He is also more willing to interact with new people but he has to know he can trust you first.

“We often see him now chilling out by the window in his pen or in his bed snoozing.

“Sandy is developing into a very sweet and much happier boy but his new family will need to have time and patience to continue to work with him, building his confidence and showing him how great life can be.

“This handsome chap is looking for an experienced cat home where any children are older teens. and where he can be the only cat in the household.”

Could you be the one to offer this gorgeous chap a bright and happy, worry-free future?
