Meet Derrick, a handsome senior gentleman with a distinctive majestic aura. He's a captivating presence with an ageless spirit and a love for exploring the world from a broad perspective - particularly when it's up high.

Derrick is still spry despite his years, demonstrating a strength, agility, and quick wit that would put younger felines to shame. However, his love for food rivals his love for exploring, so rest assured tasty treats are always on his agenda!

This independent gentleman appreciates his personal space and likes affection on his terms. He's profoundly intelligent and a quick learner, which means he can adapt to new environments with a bit of patience and time.

While not a lap cat, Derrick wishes for a quiet household where he can bask in the companionship of his family from a respectful distance. He would be more than happy to share a peaceful afternoon by your side or offer you company while you read a book or enjoy a cup of tea.

Derrick is a gentleman that requires a little understanding and patience as he adjusts to his new environment, but once comfortable, his majestic persona and delightfully unique character shines through.

His ideal living situation would be a quiet home, one without other pets or young children, where he can enjoy the serene life he adores. Derrick would make a fantastic companion for someone who loves felines for their independent spirit and unique personalities, finds joy in their company and looks forward to mutual respect and beautiful bond.

Derrick is currently in foster care having a break from the busy shelter life. If you would like more information about Derrick or wish to meet him please contact our Foster Care Co-Ordinator’s -Email
