Tigger came to us when his previous owner was taken into care.
Tigger had been a very loved cat, but due to his previous owner’s illness, he wasn’t receiving all of the care he required. He was diagnosed as diabetic, but went untreated for a long time.
Tigger is currently on short term foster with one of our best foster carers and even though it has taken a while, with the hard work and dedication of said fosterer, his condition is improving. Tigger will be part of our long term foster scheme as he requires insulin at 2x 12 hour intervals and a special diet. He would also need regular checks at the vets. Kelly, his fosterer, has also been doing his glucose curve tests at home in order to give a more accurate reading as he is comfortable and content in the home.
Tigger is fine with other cats and is even currently living with a small dog, which he doesn’t seem bothered about in the slightest.
Being part of the long term foster scheme means that his new human will love him and take care of him like their own, but the shelter will help towards the vet bills and medication costs if needed.
If you think you could provide a great home and care that Tigger needs, please pop to the shelter to chat to the manager.
If you are interested in adopting Tigger, please visit the shelter on Wed and Fri 1:30pm - 3:00pm or Sat and Sun 1:00pm - 3:30pm
