Ali started life at Exeter Axhayes as a very frightened boy who found straying out in the countryside. Whilst in our care, he was diagnosed with FIV which meant he needed an indoor home. This was a challenge for the girls who work here as he was so frightened and found life in a pen a very scary place. It took one of our volunteers and a few of our CCAs to help bring him around and show him that people are not scary.
After a couple of months, his confidence improved and he started to enjoy the attention. He was lucky to find that extra special owner who was happy to give him the time and patience. He has been in his home for a week now; he has come on leaps and bounds.

He hasn’t been too keen on the loud noises; he is not a fan of technology – phones, screens and people on the TV. He likes to listen to the radio and their records with them. He is slowly getting used to all of the noises in their flat.
They have told us that he likes to talk to them. If they call his name he comes out and chats to them. He has very quickly become part of the family. They have said “I had no idea quite how rewarding this whole process would be, he makes progress every day and it warms my heart. I’m a complete sucker for him.”
