Stan
Poor Stan did not have a good start in life, he came into us with his siblings as his owner was forced by social services to release him, because his original owner had mental health issues.  We are not sure what he endured but was quite quiet and reserved when he came to us.  

Stan was offered a home but the new owner insisted we had him snap tested to make sure he did not have any Fiv.  This was negative and we always test male adult cats.   He had his first vaccination, had a full health check and was ready to go to his new home.

Poor Stan has come back to us after just one week!!  Apparently he came down with flu like symptoms, so his new owner took him to their local vet.  That vet said because the cat was stressed it now has flu.   We think this vet was a little OTT as rescue cats often come out with stress like symptoms.   Our vet would not have vaccinated him if he had already had flu!!  They did not give him enough time to adjust to new surroundings and new people, poor Stan is back with us, not knowing why he has been given up again.   Some rescue cats adjust immediately, others take time, it must be very traumatic for them to be taken from a home, settle with us and then moved on again.  If you haven't got the patience or the time for a rescue cat to settle, get one from a breeder.

Stan needs a quiet home with someone with patience to bring him out of his shell, any problems we always sort it out ourselves as our vets know our cats.   If you could give him another chance please call us. 01656 769855 please leave a message if we are too busy to come to the phone.
