Wobbles the cat searches for a quiet home before his 19th birthday

Elderly cat Wobbles is getting on a bit.

The black cat will turn 19 in July – or 92 in cat years – and is seeking a home to move into before then, where he’ll be loved and comfortable for his final years.

For now, he’s in RSPCA care, since he was taken in back in April, when his previous owner moved to new accommodation where the cat wasn’t allowed to live.

Staff at Stubbington Ark, run by the RSPCA Solent branch, welcomed in Wobbles from the Hampshire area and have been looking after him while he searches for a forever home.

Now, staff are launching a special appeal to find the cat a home before his birthday.

Deputy manager Kirstie Blakeley said: ‘Wobbles is a true gent and a real favourite here at The Ark.

‘He absolutely loves being around people and enjoys nothing more than being stroked. He gives you a head butt if you stop!

‘He’s a chatty boy who likes to meow and purr, loves having a daily brush, and would love to live with someone who is around most of the time to spend quality time with him.

‘He’ll be 19 soon and we can’t bear the thought of this lovely lad being homeless for such a big birthday.

‘We really hope we can find him the purr-fect home in time for his celebrations.’

Wobbles – a fitting name, as he’s becoming a little wobbly on his feet in old age – is after a calm and quiet home where he will be the only pet.

Vets have found early signs of renal failure, so he’ll need to stick to a special diet to manage this, and he’s currently recovering from surgery to remove a lump from his head.

The old codger is also on medication for arthritis and his blood pressure.

Wobbles – currently 18 years and 10 months old – is looking for a calm and quiet home where he will be the only pet and can spend the rest of his life living in comfort.

‘Any new owners will need to take the costs of his ongoing medication into account before taking Wobbles on,’ Kirstie added. ‘However, we believe he is worth every penny and that his new family will feel very lucky to have him.

‘We’ve decided to reduce the adoption fee for Wobbles to just £25. Hopefully that will give his new owners more cash to spend on his medication from the offset.

‘This gorgeous puss really deserves to find a wonderful new home where he can enjoy the love and attention he has been used to, and where he can live out his days without a care in the world!’

If you think you could give Wobbles the perfect home to live out his twilight years, you can find out more about him online or fill in this form and email it over to enquiries@rspcasolent.org.uk.
