Baba is a very special boy.

Adopted as a youngster, he returned to Sheffield Animal Centre recently to look for another chance at happiness, as he enters his golden years.

RSPCA spokesman Adam Spencer said: “Baba is a shy boy who finds change difficult, and hid away in his den for the first week or so, watching the world go by from his safe place.

“He also overgroomed awfully and pulled his own fur out, we think partly due to stress and partly as his skin wasn`t in the best way.

“He has been under the vet’s supervision for this since he arrived back and, with medication, he is now much better and happier.

“He may need medication to keep him comfortable for the rest of his life. Other than this, Baba has no known health issues.

“Although he was shy initially, once he bonds with his carers, he slowly but surely allows his true, gorgeous personality to shine through. He is very loving, affectionate and charming and does enjoy a groom when he`s in the mood. It`s important that he gets help with this and that he is groomed regularly, to keep his thick, hairy coat in good order.

“Baba is looking for an experienced cat home, where he can be the only pet and where any children are teenagers. He needs to be able to settle in and get used to his new family and surroundings at his own pace with lots of love and support.

“We`d be looking for Baba to go home on a trial/foster basis initially, so we can ensure he is happy and comfortable before he is officially adopted.”

Could you offer this sweet boy the happy home he so deserves?
