Meet Cheerio

Add to favourites

Chip, Chip, Cheerio! This distinguished young gentleman was not blessed with a great start to life. Because of that, he has some quirks that require a very special person to love him fur-ever!

Cheerio was a very emaciated stray. Although starved, his heart and soul is full of nothing but love for people. Cheerio is still on his weight gain journey, he is quite obsessive over food (understandably) and gets very excited to see it coming. He must eat out of a slow feeder to stop him from gobbling it in one go, and he gets three portioned meals throughout the day. Make sure to lock your snacks away, because Cheerio won’t be able to resist anything left out! Cheerio will need to be an indoor cat from the rest of his life, in a home with people who want to have a loving cat companion. Cheerio makes everyone he meets feel very special, he greets you with his meows, he jumps on your shoulders, and sometimes even gives kisses! We have no doubts that Cheerio will bring someone a lot of happiness. He just needs a special home that promises to make sure he gets all of the things to keep him a very healthy, happy and safe boy.
