This lovely boy is called Ash. He was an entire tom, not microchipped and had been hanging around in Stantonbury Fields, Milton Keynes. Ash had clearly been in the wars, he had bumps all over his face and a split on his ear. He had missing fur on his head, neck and shoulders. Ash was covered in scratches and cuts. Poor lad was in a really poor condition and was not keen on humans at all.
Ash was checked over by a vet who suggested it was possible he would FIV+. He moved into foster care with Mandy, shortly before the UK went into lockdown. With vets closed unless it was for emergencies, Ash patiently waited for his tests. Mandy used this time with him to gain his trust and to show him that it Is okay to trust people. Since then, Ash has come on leaps and bounds.
Luckily, the vets recently started taking appointments again. Ash has now been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. The vets also confirmed that Ash is FIV+, meaning he would need an indoor home.
Ash is currently recovering from his dental, and will hopefully be ready for a new home in the coming weeks. He has become quite the celebrity with MK Cat Rescue and we can’t wait to see how much further he progresses.
