Toby has been described as Britain’s loneliest cat as he is facing a second Christmas without a home of his own after being rescued from a household where there were 46 pets. He is currently in foster care organised by the RSPCA in Canterbury, Kent.
He found the shelter difficult and was therefore removed and placed in foster care. He is 11 years old and described as a black cat but, in fact, he is a tuxedo cat with a beautiful white triangular shaped area of fur on his chest.
In total, Toby has spent 332 days in the shelter. The average waiting time there is 28 days. He is a great cat as he is sociable, friendly and also interactive. He has all the usual good domestic cat traits and would make a wonderful companion. Fortunately his carer provides a decent home by the sound of it because he has spent sunny summer days in the garden. He does, however, need a genuine home of his own.
“We’d love to see him in a new home for Christmas, there must be someone out there looking for an older cat for some company.”
Older cats make great companions. They know the ropes and I am sure Toby would settle in well as in the right home he’d be very appreciative.
When he was rescued from what appears to be a cat hoarding situation, he was accompanied by 14 other cats from that home and all the others have since found a new home. That’s a bit sad and I hope somebody picks up on this article and contacts the RSPCA in Canterbury, Kent to adopt him.
Tuxedo cats are not unpopular. I looked after a female rescue tuxedo cat (a cat that I personally rescued from the streets of London) for most of her life and she was a wonderful cat companion to me.
