Meet dawson

Dawson is a laid back, smoochie, playful, muscular boy. He's very verbal (chirps to you to ask for pats), loves to be brushed and enjoys sitting on the lounge with you in front of the tv. He's also expert at head butting you to encourage you to stroke him. He will come to you when you call him.

Dawson is very placid, and can be shy with new people to start off with, but he warmed to his new family quite quickly. This, despite coming into our care as a stray having been patted and fed by a soft hearted animal lover, so we suspect he has lived within a loving family in his earlier life.

He gets along fine with our resident cats, grooms and sleeps with the new scared stray kitties that come into care, is not fazed with our small dog. He has bonded with one of the kittens in care called Cheddar. I'm hoping someone will be interested in adopting them both together.

We believe Dawson would fit in a home where there's another feline friend available... It may take a little time for him to settle in, but will be well worth your patience.

Dawson is vet checked, desexed and his vaccinations are up to date. He has also tested negative for Feline Aids. So, he's now raring to find his furever family to love and spoil him in return for his smooches.

If you would like to learn more about Dawson, or visit him at his Hoxton Park foster home, please contact his carer, Karen.

  • When he came into our care, poor Dawson visited the vet several times to resolve a case of conjunctivities, and to treat swollen foot pads which have now cleared up. Any contribution towards his vet expenses would be gratefully received.
  • dawson has sadly had additional veterinary expenses due to illness or injury. We are seeking sponsorship for dawson to help us cover some of those additional costs.
