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.
