Beckett, from 8 Lives Cat Rescue, Sheffield, homed through Cat ChatWe were asked to take a lovely lady cat called Becky into rescue when her elderly human sadly died. It struck us when she arrived that she was a rather large and muscular lass, but she was grieving and it had been a big upheaval for her, so we kept quiet. She cried quite a bit in the night at first and we thought she had a rather deep and loud voice, but again thought nothing of it. After a few days, she was having a wash during a snuggle session, and revealed the information that she wasn't actually Becky at all! We've renamed him ‘Beckett’ and have no idea how long he'd been passing as a lady cat. Despite the gender confusion, he's been a typical soft tom cat. He loves his cuddles and comes to sit on my lap the moment I sit down in his bedroom. He purrs and snuggles until I have to move. Beckett was spotted on Cat Chat and has now been rehomed.
