Say Hi to Indie


We are looking for a very exceptional home for Indie, he has now been in our care for a year, with not one line of enquiry.
Indie came into our care suffering from catfight injuries. As is sadly all too common with entire males, Indie has tested positive for FIV.


Indie is around 7 years old. He is looking for a home with a very understanding and patient owner. We think that Indie had been a stray for a long while and now needs time to learn to trust people again. He will need to be an only pet in a quiet adult home.



Indie has been in foster care for all of his time with us. Here is what the foster carer has to say about him.


"Indie has been with me for a few months now - he’s obviously been through some fairly major trauma as he’s very slowly building his trust in humans up. I’m greeted with an affectionate (I like to think!) hiss in the morning, and his favourite place to spend time is tucked away under the dining table. He does have a place on the sofa, where he sleeps at night, and occasionally sits on his cat tower - more often if it’s covered in treats! In the last few months, he’s managed to get a lot braver and come much closer to me so he is getting there.


On arrival in branch care he had an old injury to his leg, he requires a dose of anti-inflammatories which he happily takes with his food daily.
I don’t think he’s ever going to be a lap cat, but there’s a playful boy in there somewhere. He often chases his tail and likes to play with a catnip mouse. He needs a very patient owner who’s willing to leave him to do his own thing and come to them when he’s ready. He needs a quiet, indoor home with no children and where he can have his own space. We haven’t built up to stroking him yet, so patience really is key.
I know the right person is out there for Indie; we’ve been through a rollercoaster of a journey together, and he’s tested me at times, but seeing the progress he’s made in the past 3 months makes it all worthwhile! He’s a handsome boy who is learning to rebuild his trust in humans."
