Learn more about Lightning

They say Lightning never strikes twice, but my charms will be sure to strike your heart over and over! G'day, I'm Lightning. I might seem a bit rough and tough on the outside, but I'm actually one of the gentlest cats you'll ever meet. I'm a lover, not a fighter; a quiet boy who just wants a home where I can relax, lounge, eat and sleep away my days. A place I can call my own. Admittedly, life hasn't been the easiest for me so far but I'm ready to leave the past behind and start living my best life with someone who's got lots of love to give. I can be timid with strangers, however I assure you that with some patience, love and PLENTY of food, I'm sure to become the best friend you've always dreamed of. While I am a gentle big boy, being picked up isn't something I'm overly fond of, so my ideal home would be with humans who are old enough to understand boundaries. Although I do have something called FIV, it's not such a big deal. It's actually a very easily manageable condition; many cats like me with FIV may never show signs or symptoms and, with proper care, can live for many happy years. The most important things you need to remember is to keep me indoors and in a single cat household, both things I'd prefer even if I didn't have FIV. I get jealous if I have to share my human's attention and I certainly don't have any desire to go back into the harsh outdoors. If my dashingly good looks and sweet personality has won you over, then be as quick as lightning and head on down to Ipswich AWL Rehoming Centre to adopt me today!
