So I’ve been very distracted the last few weeks. 🤩Getting to know this fella. He’s about 3, a stray for 2 years when he was abandoned. 😥He is FIV+ and sadly had one of his front legs amputated 8 weeks ago. He just moved in. 😝He’s spent every night sleeping with me and most days under the bed. 3am he ventured downstairs for a scope, using stairs for the first time. 🎖He’s the softest sweetest soul. 💞Not a hiss or scratch just purrs and has incredible trust. ⭐️No fixed name chosen yet! Apart from Hobo/Mr.Amazing 😍 Thanks to @bristolandwalescatrescue for saving him. You are amazing too. 💕🙏🏻😘 #bristolandwalescatrescue#cat#instacat#catsofinstagram#fivcats#fivcatsofinstagram#tripodcat#tripawd#tripawdlife#rescue#adoptdontshop#threeleggedcat#greeneyes#pusscat#bigcat#floof
