Adorable boy

Barney is a timid cat and is looking for a special, understanding and patient home.

Now I have arrived at your home, everything is strange and I don’t feel good.
Do not feel impatient if I don’t sleep in my new basket. Yesterday I slept in the dirt.
Do not be terrified if I gobble up my food. Yesterday I had to do it to survive.
Do not get angry if I pee on your floor. Yesterday it did not matter.
Do not be sad if I am afraid of your loving hand. Yesterday I did not have one.
Have patience with me, it’s your world but not yet mine.
If I trust you, I can give you the greatest gift I have to give. MY HEART.
All I need is a bit of time to adjust.

Adorable Barney came into rescue after a kind couple were feeding him on the streets for a while. They wanted to help him so we took him in. Barney has sinus damage from contracting cat flu as a stray. The damage is permanent but apart from causing him to be congested, this causes him no issues. He has special powder in his food that stops his mucus building up. Anything sinus related will be covered by the rescue. He’s a super sweet boy who is a little nervous of touch but loves to take treats from our volunteers hands and just generally hang out with us! He’s a very social boy with other cats so other friendly cats in the home is a must for Barney. They will definitely help build his confidence in his new surroundings. Barney will need a home where his new family is willing to put the work in to gain his trust. He deserves it after everything he has been through. Barney would be happy with an indoor spacious home. All he needs now is someone to give him a chance! Please apply if you think that could be you.
