Hi, my name is Ragamuffin and I am female aged 20 years! I was adopted by a lady in 2012 from Raystede but sadly I have come back as my owner was moving and not allowed to take me. It is very sad that I find myself looking for a new home at my age but hopefully someone will love me for the time that I have left in my latter years. I am currently in a foster home as I did not enjoy myself in the cattery and was a bit grumpy! I am doing really well in my foster home and I am very playful and affectionate. Sometimes, I do just want to be left alone but I am an old lady so I don't want fuss all of the time. I will sometimes sit on your lap and I will be brushed if done in short periods. I don't really need a garden and may be able to live with a calm dog as long as they know that I would be in charge. I would be fine with older children. I do have early renal disease so I do need medication and a renal diet ideally. If you would like to meet me, please contact the cattery and they can arrange for me to come back to Raystede to meet you. Is there someone out there willing to love me warts and all? Love Ragamuffin 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
