About Mika

Beautiful Mika sadly came to LAA as her owner could no longer provide the care she needs. She is a bright, affectionate girl who loves fuss and company. She can be a little shy initially, especially if you move a little too fast or speak a little too loudly, but once she trusts you and knows you she becomes a real flirt. Mika is a real chatterbox and is sure to tell you when she wants a fuss or when she is asking for her dinner, so be prepared to have a good chin wag with her when she greets you. Mika would prefer to be the only pet in the home and, unfortunately, she's not too keen on children, but respectful teenagers she can handle. 

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!
