About Binks

Gorgeous boy Binks sadly came to the centre as a stray. When he arrived, Binks was in a bit of a bad way and had a few health issues which took a little while to get on top of. However, with plenty of love, care and veterinary attention, he is now on his way back to full health. He is an incredibly affectionate boy who loves human company and lots of cuddles and love. He is massively food orientated, even letting us bath him here at the centre with the help of a few dreamies. Any potential interest will need to understand that Binks can be a greedy boy and may hunt out food in the home, especially if left uncovered. However, if you give him enough fuss and attention, you will get bucket loads of love and affection in return. Because of his love for food, we feel Binks may be better off as an only pet to prevent any food-related arguments in the home. However, because he loves attention and cuddles, he may enjoy a home with children over the age of 6 years, where someone can be around most of the day. 

Cat Care

Until a cat is settled into a new home it is essential that they are not let outside and as a general guide this would be about four weeks. However, this is dependent on the individual cat.
Whilst a cat is confined to indoors you can introduce new toys for them to play with and chase. Cat nip toys can be especially rewarding. A scratch post will hopefully discourage them from choosing your sofa to sharpen their claws! Regular grooming by you will help to cement the bond between cat and new owner and although cats are known to generally be more independent than a dog, they thrive on companionship and interactive play. Even adult cats can be persuaded to practice their stalking and pouncing skills on an old shoelace, or play hide and seek in a cardboard box!
