Salutations and felicitations dearest peasants. I am Sir Frankland of Scarborough (hitherto) and would be delighted to bestow my honourable presence upon your company. With near to a decade and a half of experience in instructing less fortunate beings than myself in all methods of entertainment and diversions, I have decided to retire. Therefore, I believe I would be a most esteemed addition to anyone who needs a touch more snuggling expertise in their life. In truth, I'm a sweet old man who has probably seen better days. I came to Cat Haven in pretty bad condition because my owners knew they couldn't look after me properly. I needed to have mats clipped off and my teeth taken care of, but now I'm ready to find a loving forever home. Here follows a character reference from my foster carer:
"Frankland is a strange mix of regal looks and silly stretches. He warms up quite quickly to head scratches and will make sure he gets his share of attention, without being too needy. He loves to be stroked and scratched right before bedtime, and may insist on some skin contact by lying right on top of your chest (or in your neck), but will move without fuss.
He is a genuinely sweet character, low maintenance, well domesticated and has not actively tried to escape even once. As with any cat, he enjoys his spot in the sun, and will also sit and stare out of windows or through screen doors for extended periods of time. He is an early riser, but with some coaxing and routine he settles down quickly. He is also a sucker for anything that smells of fish and that is normally a sure-fire way to entice him.
For an older gentleman, he still has a lot of spring in his step and a curious nature, but don’t expect too much in the form of chasing fake mice or playing with toys. He has fallen in love with his scratching pole and this keeps him entertained when he wakes up early. Since he is considered elderly, he does seem to have slight problems with his vision, only when it comes to seeing water in his bowl. He prefers to have his water run into a bathtub where he knows he will find it. Frankland would be well suited to an older person/couple or even a family with older kids, as he may get frightened by loud or unexpected noises."
Frankland has a heart murmur. The murmur has been assessed by Cat Haven veterinary staff as mild (grade three or less) and not likely to cause any adverse effects on your cat’s health. It is still advised that you have your primary care veterinarian monitor the heart murmur each time your cat has their annual health check. If you would like to discuss this further with one of Cat Haven’s veterinarians please ask one of our grounds staff to assist you in booking a consultation. Cat Haven does not take any responsibility for any subsequent conditions or issues that may develop in the future as a result of this condition.
To meet me in foster care please contact our foster care department on:
The foster carer will then be in touch to discuss this further and arrange a meeting. If after leaving your details you have not heard from anyone after 48 hours, please let us know. Once you’ve decided to give a foster cat or kitten a furrever home you’ll need to come to Cat Haven in person to complete the adoption paperwork before taking them home. We can’t wait to hear from you!
