Marvin is a total sweetheart with a loving nature. He enjoys being around people, especially if they are willing to give him lots of head scratches!

This boy may take some time to settle into his new home, but once he is used to the place and trusting of his owners, he is sure to be a loving companion and lap cat. He is able to live with older children and can be rehomed to first time owners.

Battersea screens all cats for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and Marvin has tested positive. FIV is a slow-acting virus and most cats live long, happy and healthy lives. However, in order to protect other cats and to preserve the health of the carrier, Battersea rehomes FIV+ cats to homes with enclosed gardens.

Don’t worry if your garden isn’t currently cat-proofed as we can offer plenty of advice. We’ll also arrange for you to speak to a Battersea vet prior to rehoming.

If you could offer Marvin the perfect home that he truly deserves, please get in touch today.
