This is Patch and he's an older boy being at least 13 years young. There's nothing he likes more than a lazy walk, and a snooze, a bit of fussing and then a snooze and perhaps something to eat and then, you guessed it, a snooze. Patch came into us when one of his owners passed away and he was left in a home where he decided that the visiting small people were not his favourite thing. He likes being quiet and snoozing (did I mention that earlier ?), loves a fuss, but noise and young people are just not his thing. Patch needs somewhere where he can rest and be loved. He is getting slighly stiff joints now, so we have him on medication and the new owner would need to continue with these. As you can see his eyesight is starting to fail a bit but that doesn't seem to bother him to much (don't need to see when you are snoozing)!

The Peterborough Telegraph is running regular spotlights on animals that need new homes to support the work of animal charities in the Peterborough area.

This week the spotlight is on all kinds of four-legged friends: cats, dogs and rabbits. 
The Peterborough and District Branch of the RSPCA do so much to rescue, nurture and subsequently rehome animals in the area. They have continued to operate throughout lockdown and within a small radius are still permitted to rehome these animals.
