Sooty and Lucky

Gender: Male
Age: 16 and 17 years

Sooty and Lucky came to the shelter when their owner sadly passed away.

These boys were very well cared for and were obviously loved!

Both are very affectionate, although Lucky is the first one up and out of bed to greet you.

As they are both black, they can be a little hard to tell apart at first, however, Sooty has all white whiskers, and Lucky has all black! So face on, it’s a little easier to tell!

This pair have been together for so long it would be a crime to split them up, so they will be rehomed as a pair.

They have both been outside and are used to using cat flaps. They have never been around dogs or children and we think they like it that way.

Lucky has recently been found to have slightly reduced kidney function, which could be the start of renal failure, however we are told he is in the very early stages. We are keeping a check on this and for now the only thing required is a renal diet and plenty of drinking water available to him (the way he drinks is very cute, he delicately dips his toes in the water and then laps the water from there!) The shelter will be able to provide the renal food for lucky and as and when further veterinary treatment is required, we can cover the cost of this as long as he is taken to our vets (Highfields on London Road).

If you think you could give these older chaps a comfortable and happy life, please get in touch.
