Flash’s fresh start

Flash’s fresh start

Flash has good reason to look grumpy as he has been waiting patiently for a home for more than 100 days in the care of Together for Animals member Blue Cross.

The black and white nine-year-old came into the charity after being found as a stray but has had little interest from potential new owners.

It’s thought he had been living on the streets for seven years being fed by locals after his previous owner left the country.

The team at the charity’s rehoming centre in Burford believe he’s being overlooked because he’s looking for a special home, but also due to his age and grumpy demeanour on photos – but he is just misunderstood.

Elisha, Animal Welfare Assistant at Blue Cross in Burford, said: “He’s a sweet boy and quite a character and we’ve all fallen in love with him.

“He’s definitely a cat who prefers human company rather than a lap cat. He’s coming on leaps and bounds in cattery now, he’s very inquisitive and enjoys watching and being around other cats. He still struggles to trust people and his temperament is ‘I’m ok being in your presence, but don’t touch me’

“As his history is pretty unknown we’re looking for a specific home for him, ideally a farm/yard type home with a heated outhouse or similar. We’ll need his owners to still care and feed for him and allow him access to their home if he likes.”

Your support helps provide all the love and care animals like Flash need while they wait to find their forever homes. Thank you.
