My story

Hurley was surrendered to Abbey cats and thankfully so. He is approximately 9 or 10 yrs old and wasn’t in great shape. He was soon diagnosed with diabetes (now in remission) and he also had severely infected teeth which has all been taken care of. He is now starting to understand how feels to be healthier.

At first, it was hard for him to trust people and he didn’t like to be touched, pet and definitely not picked up. However now he loves to have his chin, head and neck scratched and kissed, gently pet on his head and back and totally enjoys it when you talk to him. He is a little independent but an amazing guy but, don’t let him suck you into feeding him too often with his persuasive ways. He can’t jump up onto the bed or sofa so if you would like him to sleep or sit with you, he will need stairs to climb up (which he learnt within a day with treats of course). He has come a long way and is showing more affection, loyalty and charming character.

He doesn’t do well with other cats, dogs and or children. He is best suited in a quiet home and will need someone who understands diabetes and take BG readings (Blood Glucose readings that will need to be taken every 3 days). Feeding should be 90% protein (wet food) 10% carbs (dry food) to keep the glucose levels down.

Diabetic in remission, will need BG levels taken every 3 days.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

***Please bear in mind that it is against Abbey Cat policy to adopt a single kitten under the age of 6 months to a home without a kitten of similar age for company.***

Due to an unprecedented demand (especially for kittens) we regret that we are unable to respond by phone to all of the applications we are currently receiving.

We are only able at this time to phone those applicants who have sent in an online adoption application, can provide a vet reference and their criteria matches what the particular cat or kittens' needs are.

We regret any inconvenience caused as we do our best to meet the overwhelming demand we are currently experiencing.

We want to make sure that our rescued cats and kittens go to good, loving homes so before we adopt, an adoption counselor will conduct a short pre-adoption interview to make sure that you and the cat are a good match.
