Meet MO

Mo is the sweetest, most beautiful and affectionate senior citizen you will ever meet. He loves to be brushed and stroked and will sit there for hours while you pamper him. He adores attention and TLC and will lie on his back purring his heart out for a brush and a tummy rub. Mo is still very playful and don't be fooled by his age, he runs, jumps and plays like a kitten at times! At 10 years young, Mo was abandoned and left to die by his previous owner, severely neglected and starving. Mo lives with his foster carer, 2 children, a gentle cat friendly dog and 2 adult cats who are also Himalayans.

He is not fazed by any other animals as long as they are not aggressive and he will fit in to a home with existing pets and/or children. Mo is quite afraid of my 4 year old son though and would best be adopted by a family or individual with older children. Mo will only be adopted to the very best of homes and preferably to an individual who has knowledge of the Himalyan breed and care. He will need a family with time to pamper him and give him lots of love and he will reward you with his sweet and affectionate purrsonality. Unlike most Himalayans, Mo is not double coated so his beautiful fur is quite easy to maintain. His care will involve brushing at least once a day which he absolutely adores and he will need to be an inside cat only as he is quite afraid of the outside world.

Mo is litter trained, desexed, wormed, flea treated, microchipped and vaccinated and he is available for adoption now. Mo needs to stay on a high quality diet as he has had food allergies in the past but healthwise, Mo has had a full veterinary check and he is very healthy with no issues. Enquiries regarding Mo are more than welcome and
