Lincoln is a stunning, all black, semi-long haired , neutered male cat who is being fostered in Tipton, West Mids. We are guessing he is around 2yrs old and he came to us as an un-neutered stray at the end of May this year.
This handsome boy had been hanging around a couples garden for a while and they were becoming increasingly worried about him. He had a nasty wound on his head and his coat was terribly matted around his back end which made it difficult for him to even walk. At the time he was hissy and afraid of humans, but the moment we meet he decided to put his trust in me and has never once tried to hurt me and I trust him too, sometimes he repays my trust with a proper kiss right on the lips. I just love him!
Now 3 months later the hissing has stopped and I can touch him all over though I tend to only do this when he is busy eating so that he always has positive associations.
Lincoln did get adopted but I had to collect him 3 weeks later, as all my hard work with him had been undone. Lincoln was reported to be aggressive and the family were afraid of him, in those 3 weeks he had become fearful and suspicious of people again, which was very upsetting to see.
I know I’m bias but honestly since coming back he has been the perfect house guest, there has been no sign of any aggression not even a hiss, he even went back to the vets to finish his vaccinations and was as good as gold for the vet and vet nurse….and they were sticking needled in him!
This boy simply needs a calm home with someone who knows how to handle him gently and with respect. He likes other cats but he is greedy with his food so if he does go into a home with other cats his diet would need to be carefully monitored.
