Charlie is a chunky, cream & white, neutered male cat being fostered in Tipton, West Mids. We don’t know how old he is but estimate he may be between 5 and 7 years.
Charlie is unrecognisable from the sickly, frozen to the bones, sad stray who came to us a month ago.
Charlie had spent around 3 years living under a shrub, eventually he was given a kennel when this winters weather set in but by then he was looking very unwell (as you can see from the photo).
He had a low grade flue with infected eyes and a sore mouth but thankfully that is all that our vets found wrong.
He is looking and feeling so much better now but new owners should know that he may need eye drops again in the future if any of his symptoms flare up again. He has had a broken tooth removed too and we’re hopeful that he will be able to start his vaccinations very soon
Charlie is such a lovely lad, he’s not keen on having eye drops but despite wriggling with all his might, he has never tried to scratch or bite. He is such a gentle giant but will occasionally give you a little nibble when he’s feeling particularly fussy.
He is having some extra fibre in his food to help him go to the toilet but apart from that, he’s perfect!!
