This is unfair. Sandy is “furgotten” and he shouldn’t be. It shows us that life can be competitive in a shelter. Sandy is one of 15 most overlooked cats in the UK. It is time someone came forward and offered him a home. He deserves it.
Sandy is at Katz Castle, Cobham. Cobham is within the M25 motorway and south west of London. He has been there for over a year. He is not that far from me to be honest. I might ring them up and see if they will let me do some cat photography of him to make him look as glamorous as possible.
Carol of Katz Castle is keen for Sandy to find a nice home. He was rescued as a stray cat living near a main road. He recently escaped the shelter and returned to his old territory. Carol fears for his safety because it is a dangerous area.
So why is Sandy “on the cat shelter shelf”? Well, he is a bit nervous because he was mistreated. He doesn’t like being picked up. He needs to be an only cat with no other animals in the home.
“He is never going to be a “pick up and squeeze” kind of cat but he loves people and will happily potter about in other people’s company” Carol said.
Ginger tabby-and-white male cats are usually fine characters. I sure he’d improve and become more trusting in a loving home. He is still fairly young at 5-years-of-age.
One of the problems with cats that have been overlooked for whatever reason, and the reasons are often unjustified, is that once they are overlooked and become long stay cats that simple fact can present a big barrier to adoption as people will ask themselves why has he been stuck at the shelter for so long.

You’ll see Sandy on the home page. He is sure to find a human companion now, isn’t he?
