About Kitty

Adorable Kitty came to LAA as sadly her owner could no longer care for her. She is a lovely little lady, who adores human company and can be exceptionally affectionate. She can be a little vocal for attention, so new owners must be prepared to have a good natter with her, especially at meal times! She can be very playful for a cat in her senior years, proving that cats, just like us humans, are only as old as they feel! Kitty would prefer to be the only pet in the home since she loves to have the limelight all to herself, but may enjoy the company of children aged 10+ providing they understand that, although she does enjoy human company, she will need her own space from time to time.

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!
