Hello my name is Matrix and I am a lovely 5 year old boy. I am a shy chap initially but can be very loving and affectionate once I know you. I can be a bit boisterous at feed times and may grab at your feet if I'm hungry. I do have a bit of a sensitive tum so I need to be on a good quality diet or I may get an upset tummy. I am not so keen on young children but I may be okay to live with older respectful children. No other cats for me as I can be quite territorial. I will need to have a litter tray down all the time as I don't like going outside to toilet when the weather is bad. I do like to go out when the weather is nice but I don't wander too far so I do need a garden of my own. Do you have the purrfect home for me? Love Matrix 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
