Hello, my name is Wendy. I came to Raystede as a stray with 4 kittens. I am approximately 3 years old. My kittens have since flown the nest, so I am hoping to find my happy ending. Since settling into Raystede I have gained in confidence around the staff and will come and say hello. However, I am not used to being touched so I can panic if I am stroked or picked up. I am looking for a quiet home with maybe one or two adults that will allow me to settle, will let me approach you and someone who will not force me to have a fuss. I am looking for a home with no dogs, cats or children please! I would like a garden to explore once I am settled as I do like to sit out in my run. Do you have the purrfect home for me? Love Wendy xx
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
