Vince first went into the care of Cats Protection’s Gosport branch in March, after his owner could no longer take care of him.

After being adopted in mid-April, he was unfortunately returned a second time to the branch as he was unable to settle in with the children in his new home.

But Vince, who absolutely loves cuddling up with people, apparently remains upbeat, and is desperate to find his forever home with a loving family.

Kate Stapleford, a volunteer at Cats Protection in Gosport, says he deserves the chance to make a life for himself in a new home.

She said: ‘Poor Vince really wants to be in his forever home – he’s had so many ups and downs, he must be the unluckiest cat in Hampshire.

‘He is such a loving cat. He wants love and cuddles all the time.

‘At the rescue centre, we can see that he is desperate to get out of his pen and would be so much happier in a home.’

Two-year-old Vince is a white and black cat who has been vaccinated, neutered, health-checked and microchipped.

Given his past, the volunteers at Cats Protection in Gosport believe that Vince may be best suited to an adult home or a family with older children, as he has previously struggled with younger children.

According to Kate, Vince is a ‘fantastic cat’ who loves nothing more than to spend his time playing outside.

‘He loves cuddles, attention and playtime – feathers on a stick and catnip mouse toys are definitely his favourites,’ she said.

‘He loves his food and treats and also the great outdoors.

‘He seems like a hunter but just loves being around people.

‘Vince is a fantastic cat so we’re calling for anyone who thinks they could give him a home to get in touch.

‘We try very hard to match up the cat to the adopter so it is the right and perfect home.’

Cats Protection is a national feline welfare charity, helping more than 200,000 cats a year through its national network of branches.

Anyone who is interested in giving Vince his ‘happy ever after’ and adopting him can contact the Cats Protection’s Gosport branch by calling (023) 9258 2601 to find out more information regarding him.
