would love to find a new forever home.



Blackie is a male, desexed 1 year old black domestic short haired cat.


Blackie is a big boy who enjoys having a pat and loves a chin scratch. He is still a little shy around people but he is getting much better and starting to let his personality come through. He would be best suited to a home that can spend lots of time with him and give him time to settle in.
