How do I tell if a cat is healthy??

I am looking a beautifull ginger tom tomorrow who is 3 years old and was a stray.

He has been at a foster home for last 4 months (cats protection people) and has been neutered, micro-chipped and vet checked.

I was wondering if I could tell what his health was like.

I know he's been vet checked but is there any other sign of ill health I can look for?

Thanks in advance.

So it's been vet checked, but you still want the opinions of complete strangers who have never seen the cat in question and have no relevant qualifications in cat health???? :whistling::whistling::whistling::whistling:

Surely not?

I'm sure the cat will be fine, and healthy. I have a ginger tom and a ginger and white tom, who are both one today :) and right little pains in the backside aswell, lol

Someone with some catty experience may well know more as I have never owned a cat.

Whats wrong with a second opinion. Vets are like doctors they are not always right :p

Apparently a few things you can check are....

Clean bottom, wet nose and no discharge from the eyes (or anywhere else!).

Thats about it, but the Cats Protection people so their job very well.

hi make sure the cat does not have dirty ears or gunky eyes and it does not have cat flu like sneezing as this is a killer for cats and check for fleas as they can take a while to get rid of with no treatment there is pleantyy of treatment for fleas these days:)

My cat came from a charity that fosters cats out, his carer was able to give me his vaccination certificate-updated from during his stay with her, she also gave me a tub of the food he had been currently eating so he wouldn't get a stomach upset from an immediate change of diet .

good decision cats are good first check it if it likes you

check they have no history of skin irritations as insurance companies wont cover previous conditions .
