About Hope

Little stunner Hope sadly came to the centre as a stray. As you can see, she is certainly a looker, but she is just as gorgeous on the inside as she is on the outside, never turning down a cuddle and a fuss. She can be a little put off by other cats and would therefore need to be the only cat in the home, and we are still assessing whether or not she would be happy sharing her home with a canine friend, although it does seem unlikely. However, Hope would be comfortable living with children over the age of ten, especially if they have previous experience with cats and understand how to respect her and give her space should she want it. 

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!
