Hello my name is James. I am a 10 year old chap looking for my forever home. I am very shy to start with and take a little while to settle in a new place and to get used to new people. Once I do trust you, I am a super friendly fella who LOVES a fuss and can get quite soppy, I have even been know to rollover and let people stroke my tummy. I am still settling into the cattery and am still quite jumpy with loud noises or sudden movements. I quite often hiss at the staff when they first come into my unit but I am learning that they just want to be my friend. I do draw courage from them making a fuss of me and they tell me that I am a lovely boy which really helps my confidence. I will be a super, lovely companion and lap cat once I am settled in my new home. I need a quiet adult only home please with no other cats or dogs and I do enjoy going outside so will need a nice garden to call my own. Can you offer me my purrfect home? love James 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
