Hi, my name is Fred and I am 11 years old. Sadly, my owner passed away so I am hoping to find a new forever home. I am looking for a quiet, adult only home as I can be a little shy to start with until I have bonded with my owner. Once I have, I am very affectionate and loving. I do not like to be left alone for long periods of time so I would ideally need to live with someone retired or works from home. I would be fine with a small garden and generally only go outside with my owner. I will need a litter tray indoors at all times. I do not like dogs and no other cats please. I am a very handsome boy who is feeling a little heartbroken at the moment. Can you mend my broken heart and offer me a loving home? Love Fred x
As the owner you are responsible for providing everything your cat needs to keep them healthy and happy:
· Companionship - Cats can be quite independent, however many also like to be petted and stroked daily. Some cats are happy around other cats as long as they have their own place to eat and sleep.
· Physical exercise - Access to outside is very important for cats. Introduce outside time slowly once your cat is familiar with your home.
· Mental Stimulation - Activity that keeps their mind busy / toys / scratching posts / training. Cats also love to hunt, so don't be surprised if they bring you 'presents'.
· A healthy diet - Normally two meals a day of the food type and quantity appropriate. Access to clean, fresh water.
· Veterinary care - When needed. Annual health check.
· Comfortable environment - Not too cold, hot, draughty or damp. Your cat will find her favourite places to sleep! Provide a litter tray where appropriate.
· Respect of their needs - Especially ensure children know how to behave around cats to help them build a lasting friendship.
Each cat has specific needs, depending on its age, breed and type. For more info on caring for your cat please order our free pet care guide here: Pet Care Guide
