The RSPCA is appealing for a special home for the one-year-old cat who has been overlooked by new owners so far at the Stapeley Grange cattery in Nantwich.

Northwich Guardian: One-year-old Clawd is seeking a new home after being abandoned by his previous owner.

One-year-old Clawd is seeking a new home after being abandoned by his previous owner.

After he was sadly abandoned by his previous owner, Clawd has become a little distrustful of people, but with some love and attention this may change.

He’s been waiting patiently since January 17 - 103 days - for someone to take a chance on him.

Lee Stewart, manager at Stapeley Grange, said: "Clawd is a playful cat with lots of energy and he will need a home with someone who can commit to offering him plenty of playtime and stimulation.

"Clawd can be a little unpredictable at times and needs an experienced cat owner who can interpret his behaviour and make allowances for when he doesn't want to be touched; he can be affectionate at times but it is strictly on his terms.

"He is very mischievous and full of personality but has a very short attention span.

"He really is a beautiful cat, he will be very challenging to start off with but with time and some love and patience will settle."

Playful Clawd has been looking for a new home since January.

Clawd is not suited to a home with children or other pets, and he will need a safe garden to go out when he is ready, and cannot be rehomed near to busy roads.
