Sadly I need to put our boy and girl up for adoption.
Location: South West London (will travel for the right home)
Names: Poppy and Percy
Age: 5 (born July 2008)
Colour, hair length and breed: Both domestic shorthairs, Percy is all black and Poppy is white and black
Background: Poppy and Percy were bought from a breeder in Eltham as kittens, lived on their own with their dad until cat families were amalgamated in 2009 and have 2 step-brothers and a human sibling now.
General health: Poppy and Percy are both very healthy animals. They have each been to the vet only once due to gastroenteritis. They are active outdoor cats, no special dietry needs, no previous injuries
Reasons for rehoming: We combined cat families when my husband and I moved in together in 2009. Our 4 cats get on relatively well with each other, but our older boy bullies Poppy and we have been unable to change his behaviour. She had been overgrooming due to being stressed. We have tried everything we can but we need to split them up. In addition our financial situation took a very serious turn for the worse when I had to stop working due to disability, and this means we cannot afford to be responsible pet owners to 4 cats any longer. Poppy and Percy have a beautiful sibling bond, and we want them to stay together.
Character: Percy is dopey and sweet. He taps you for affection and has never hissed or scratched. He is not a champion hunter but once came home with a massive whole cooked chicken breast. Poppy is dainty and pretty. She has a pure white belly and black markings elsewhere, a pretty pink mouth, and is very loving. She likes to lick and knead for relaxation but does relax into a cuddle on your lap for hours.
Rehomed together or separately: We really want Poppy and Percy to stay together. They have a wonderful bond and make a great team.
Children, other cats, dogs: No contact with dogs, both wonderful with our 22 month old son. Both are ok with other cats providing the other cat is not anxious or aggressive.
Indoors or outdoors: Have access to outdoors but are homebodies at heart.
Vaccinations: They are not up to date with vaccinations.
They are both neutered and microchipped.
