Meet Aston. (Oxfordshire Wildlife Sanctuary)

Male gender

Age – 10 years old

Breed – Domestic Shorthair

Aston is looking for a forever home – could it be with you?

This adorable, fun cat has a lot to offer, including love, food and cuddles.

He has a manageable skin condition which requires lifelong medication, costing less than £20 a month.

His new owner should also be aware that he has a history of bladder stones, so he should follow a specialist diet.

Although he can live with children aged 10 and up, Aston would prefer to be the only pet in the house.
