Physical Description

Angus is a big-boned, boofy tabby who is an ex-Tom cat. He has the big jowls that we associate with male cats who have been undesexed out on the streets for a while after reaching adulthood.

Known History & Temperament

Angus was trapped in an industrial area by a volunteer, who took him into care from there. From there, she has been working with him over a few months to get him more used to human company. He has come a long way!

Cattitude Level

  • Shy, gentle, tentative
  • Scared and shy – prefers cats to people

Interests and Hobbies

Angus is rather food motivated, and food is the way his carer has got through to him so far. He will come out of his crate and let his carer pat him while he is eating – though when he realises what’s going on he protests and backs away.


Angus is still in the midst of socialisation, so he’s not quite your typical cranky moggy just yet. He is rather a bit exasperated about having to be near humans so much – but he’s getting better!

Purrfect Home

Angus needs a home where his social rehab can continue. Ideally he’d have access to a secure cat enclosure so he can enjoy outdoor time while staying safe, and keeping others safe. But if there is no enclosure, he needs to be kept indoors, as he’s FIV+.

Health Notes

Angus tested FIV positive which wasn’t a surprise to any of us. Other than that, he’s a healthy boy and we see no reason why he can’t live a good, long life.
