Rehoming Cats & Kittens: Highlands
Weighing in at over 7 kilograms, missing an eye, and with a pure white coat, Blanco looks impressively awesome. But in truth, he is a complete softie who wants lots of petting and affection.
Around 10 ten years old, he has been with one owner for almost his entire life. Apparently the two were completely devoted to each other. With the sad passing of his former owner, he is now in CP care, looking for a quiet, rural, mature household.
He has been well cared for, and his accompanying documents show a perfect record of annual vaccinations.  CP has rounded him off with a dental treatment, cleaning up his teeth, and the boy did not require any extractions.
Blanco understandably took a while to adjust to new carers, having been with one owner for a decade. We did not see much of him for the first few weeks. He also came with a cheeky housemate who was quite dominant over him. With her now being rehomed, he is exceptionally happy to be the only pet in the house and wants to keep it that way.
When Blanco is comfortably settled and feels completely relaxed in his new home, he will want tummy tickles and neck rubs. He stretches out his paws to ask for this, licks your hands while you adore him, and won’t let you go when you’ve had enough.
In the four lockdown months we have had him, he has been indoors-only and this does not seem to have bothered him, sleeping a lot and occasionally being entertained by the swallows nesting outside. Sometimes the recommendation is for white cats to be kept indoors – or have sun protection applied – due to high risk of sunburn, especially on the ear tips. Sounds bizarre in un-sunny Scotland, but it does happen.
We have never had a hiss, scratch, bite or swipe from this gentle giant. Blanco sets his own time scale and we will certainly indulge him
