 Meet Newt,

Newt was brought to Freshfields by a very caring member of the public who took in a couple of stray cats. One being Newt and the other ‘Floyd’. However, as both cats were unneutered males, this very quickly caused issues and some upset between the two cats.

They were separated when brought to Freshfields on admission. This has helped both cats improve dramatically, and they have both really started to shine.

We would definitely describe Newt as a needy boy, who loves nothing more than to get attention. He really does need someone who has a lot of love to give and who can reassure him that he is safe and loved.

Newt had some tests done while staying here at Freshfields. He is confirmed FIV+ which means he must be rehomed on his own and there must not be other cats in the home. 

This also means that Newt must be an indoor cat. It would be great if he could have access to the outdoors with a catio. However, we understand that this might not be possible, so we are open to indoor only homes provided it is appropriate for Newt.

If you are interested in giving Newt his forever home then please do fill out an application form and email it to us at

If you would like some more information or would like to chat about Newt being FIV + the cattery staff would be happy to answer any questions.
