Wobbly kitten's search for a forever home goes on hold due to lockdown

Coronavirus and the ensuing lockdown has scuppered many plans.

But it’s not just your tattoo appointment or big work change that’s been put on pause – our feline pals are being affected too.

Little Lofty is a four-month-old kitten who had just been given the green light to start looking for his forever home when the nation went into lockdown, leading to Battersea suspending the rehoming process.

This certainly isn’t the first challenge Lofty has faced.

The rescue kitty was born with cerebellar hypoplasia, an incurable neurological condition that causes his head to involuntarily wobble.

He arrived at the charity’s London centre with his two siblings when he was only seven weeks old.

But the kitten won’t let his condition hold him back.

For now he’s staying with one of Battersea’s foster carers, Roxy Mok, and is making the most of lockdown life.

Roxy says: ‘We’re playing together a lot at the moment to make sure he’s getting the stimulation he needs.

‘He really loves his feather toy and stuffed animals.

‘He’s also fond of a nap or two and is honestly just the sweetest little cat.

‘I know he’ll make a wonderful pet when the time comes and in the meantime, he seems quite content keeping me company.’

Once the lockdown ends, Lofty will restart his search for a permanent home.

In the meantime, you can help Lofty and other cats like him by donating what you can to Battersea online.

Oh, and if you’re taking up knitting to tackle quarantine boredom, go ahead and make a blanket for cats in need.
