Hello, my name is Lola and I am 9 years old. I am a friendly and affectionate girly on my terms. I am known for giving you a little ‘BOP’ if I have had enough. I do like to go outside but have started spending more and more time indoors. I will however need to be encouraged to do some exercise as I have been told by the kitty weight watchers that I need to safely and slowly loose 2kg to reach my ideal weight. I would prefer a quiet home with no other pets and no children under the age of 12 please. I am looking for a home away from busy roads as I have no road sense. I am a very sweet girl and can be a bit needy sometimes, I would be the purrfect companion for someone that is perhaps retired and will have plenty of time to shower me with love (on my terms of course). Do you have the purrfect home for me? Love Lola 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
