#Caturday: meet Mars - the lap cat ‘with a big heart’ available for adoption in Bristol
and live on Freeview channel 276
Bristol cat lovers - allow us to introduce you to Mars. He’s a gorgeous domestic short-haired moggie aged three to six years, currently living at Bristol Animal Rescue Centre and looking for his fur-ever home.
The centre on Albert Road said: “Mars is a lovely boy with a personality as big as he is. This very friendly giant loves people and lots of attention, but also appreciates some time by himself.
“He really just wants to be a lap cat, getting stroked and cuddled all day long. Mars hopes to find adopters who are happy to be squished and smothered by his love, and who will make the space for a big cat with an even bigger heart.”
Mars doesn’t play well with other cats or dogs, however he is able to live in a home with older children, aged 10 plus. Could he be your new housemate ahead of 2023?
How can I adopt Mars?
Mars can be adopted from Bristol Animal Rescue Centre, but there is an adoption process before having Mars enter your life. The centre’s adoption fee is £130 for cats, including vet check-up, vaccinations, flea and worm treatments, neutering and microchipping.
To be eligible to adopt a cat from the centre, you must meet the following criteria:
- Must be able to fit a cat flap (unless someone is home all day)
- Cat must have ground floor access to the outside (away from any roads)
- Any plans to move house or go away on holiday in the near future must be completed before starting the adoption process
- Any other pets in the property must be up to date with their vaccinations (dog, cat, rabbit and ferret)
- Everybody who lives in the property has to meet the cat onsite
- Suitability will depend on the individual needs of each cat (this will be at the discretion of the staff)
- If in rented accommodation, a letter of permission will need to be provided
