Lichfield charity hoping to search out without end house for cat nursed again to well being over previous 9 months

A Lichfield animal welfare organization is hoping a cat will find its home forever after being nursed back to health over the past nine months.

Mylo the cat

Mylo was taken into the care of Lichfield and Tamworth Cats Protection after its previous owner failed to meet his special needs.

The six-year-old had to have his badly matted fur shaved while his weight had also triggered diabetes, which had gone untreated.

It was the second time the six-year-old cat has been fostered after living at the charity’s adoption center in Birmingham a few years ago.

After being nursed back to health by volunteers, Mylo is now looking for experienced owners who will give him a home forever.

Volunteer Carer Sue Hocknell said:

“Despite his struggles, Mylo is a beautiful cat who loves attention and is vocal when he’s hungry.

“If I hadn’t had three cats of my own, I would surely have adopted him.

“He needs someone who can really work to keep him healthy, but it will definitely be worth the effort because he is such a loving cat.

“We think he’ll be good with other cats, but not dogs.”

The charity says it takes two people for Mylo to give insulin injections twice a day. He also needs special dry food for his sensitive stomach and regular grooming.

Anyone interested in adopting him can send an email toelfare@lichfield.cats.org.uk.
