Meet Billy

Billy

Little Billy is like a puzzle waiting to be solved. Just like solving a puzzle, you will need a little patience to earn his trust but with lots of love, he's sure to come around and when he does, it will be like music in your heart.
Billy had a rough start to life but with a little patience, he has learned to trust his carers. He can be a little unsure at times and will retreat with new people. He is very inquisitive so toys are sure to spark his interest and lots of play will help him to continue to grow his confidence.
All great masterpieces take time but the reward is more than worth it! You will see this with Billy as you slowly form a bond and in return he will roll over for pats and give you lots of purrs. He is such a sweet little boy that will blossom in a home environment.

Billy is used to sharing with cats and would love another catmate that he can head bump and hang out with.
