Socks the cat needs a new home after being adopted three times from Cat's Protection Adoption Centre in Bredhurst

A cat who has ended up being re-homed and returned to an animal shelter three times is looking for a stable home.

Through no fault of his own, 10-year-old Socks has been brought back to Cat's Protection’s Bredhurst Adoption Centre, on Matts Hill Road, time and time again.

After being pushed from pillar to post the forlorn feline is now in desperate need of a 'forever home.'

Recently diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in his pelvis and lower spine, Socks needs daily anti-inflammatories to keep any discomfort under control. Because of this, he needs a special home with an understanding owner.

Stacey Faram, deputy manager at Cats Protection’s Bredhurst Adoption Centre, said: “Socks is such a sweet cat who deserves to find a home where he can enjoy some home comforts.

“Having been adopted three times, we really hope the next time will be forever. Socks needs an understanding owner who is happy to give him daily medication to help manage his condition.

“Socks loves to be around people and is always looking for a warm place to snooze. He finds being picked up uncomfortable but is quite happy to make his own way onto a lap for some attention.”

Socks needs an adult-only home where he can be the only pet needing attention. Anyone who thinks they could be the perfect companion for Socks should call Cats Protection’s Bredhurst Adoption Centre on 01634 232 471 or email bredhurst@cats.org.uk.

As well as Socks, the centre is currently caring for many other cats, all in need of loving homes. To see other cats needing homes, people should visit bredhurst.cats.org.uk/bredhurst
