Meet our new friend Billy!


I emailed the RSPCA on the off-chance they had a cat with FIV. If we have to keep Kitten in, it’s only right that we rehome a cat with the same condition. Especially since these cats spend a long time waiting for someone to take them home. Luckily they had one, Mr Billy.


He’s a big ex-stray tom, the exact opposite of what we were hoping for. We thought a small girl would be best to integrate with Kitten but hey! Billy was there and he’s the sweetest cat I’ve ever met. He loves being stroked and plays with all the toys I’ve made that Kittensie won’t touch.


Kitten’s not too thrilled – I think he enjoyed a couple of weeks being the only cat – but so far no fighting, just an entente cordiale that will hopefully turn to friendship. Not bad for two big tom cats shut up together.



  1. Hopefully they will become the very good friends! Good luck.

  2. Thankyou for being so thoughtful and brining such a huge smile to my day, and love and family to Mr Billy :))))

    1. You're making me blush! Honestly, I hate visiting the RSPCA because I want to bring them all home but can't. It's too sad seeing them all vying for your attention and then having to choose one - luckily we didn't have a choice this time so it was a bit easier. Sad too though :(

  4. He's an orange kitty...they are wonderful! Good for you for giving him a chance. Giving a rescue kitty a home can have it's challenges (we've had some with Mr. Bernard), but it's oh so worth it.

    1. It'll be nice to have some white fur on the carpet for a change! I'm currently experiencing the challenge of the litter tray at the moment. I know he used one at the RSPCA but he still seems to prefer the carpet :)
