Derek - A very placid cat who is quite timid 
with strangers initially, but as soon as he knows he’s not under any threat, should soon be relaxed 
enough to ask to sit on your lap (he extends a paw towards your knee and awaits your signal - a pat 
on the knee - to allow him up).
He is quite happy being manhandled and enjoys being stroked, rewarding you with loud appreciative
He has had some limited experience with children and babies and he has never demonstrated any 
aggressive behaviour and can tolerate quite ‘robust’ play. He’ll occasionally give his younger 
housemate - The Duke – a left hook if he’s had enough play, but claws are never revealed.
Derek is used to the outdoors and he has a few friends in the neighbourhood who he seems to rub 
along without any issue. In fact, he’s been more than happy over the years inviting the 
neighbourhood strays to share his bowl whilst the Human’s back is turned.
His last check up at the Vet revealed his teeth needed some attention. He was given a full cleaning 
procedure and during this he had a few of his back teeth removed. This has not caused him any 
trouble and he returned to eating his preferred kibble within a few days.
Derek has been rather spoiled and is slightly overweight. He is currently on a diet. He is looking for a home with his best friend Duke.
