Hello there, I am Billy-Cat and I am a rather beautiful British Short-hair – as you can see from my picture with the resident ‘Boss’ and reclining on my throne, I am prince of pusscats. I have rather fallen on my paws (so to speak) and now feel ready to share my good fortune, so here is my story,
My previous owner became too ill to look after me so asked the London Persian Rescue to take me in and re-home me. Luckily the wonderful and lovely ladies at the LPR knew of a home that were looking for a lovely boy after the loss of their previous Tom-cat, so called my new parents to ask if they were interested in homing me.
I have now been in my new home for nearly 4 weeks and have made friends with Miss Edwina Jane (the 16 year old furry Miss who rules the roost), and a 9 year old black-labrador who is kept in-check by Miss Jane, the tortoises, the chickens and the fish.
It took me two weeks to really come out of myself. For these first two weeks I lived under my new Mummy and Daddy’s bed. One day, suddenly I felt able to come out and explore. Since then I have helped Miss Jane rule the roost, have secured my day-bed on the blue-chair in the kitchen (see picture), and ensured that the Big Black Labrador knows that I am boss….or second in command as Miss Jane will always be boss! I now roll on my back for a tummy-tickle, I demand 4 meals a day, I ask to go out, I demand cuddles, I sleep on Mummy’s bed and I claw at the door to come in/go out.
I am especially good at helping Daddy read the paper on Sundays and I love my new little boy who I live with. He has a fish in his bedroom and I love stalking it. My new family are so happy to have me and are looking forward to a very happy and long life together.
I love the LPR and I love my new home.
