About Jet

Handsome man Jet came to Leicester animal Aid as his owner was working away a lot which wasn't fair on him. He originally came in with another cat, however they didn't get on too well so had to be separated. Jet is a lovely, sensitive boy who loves affection and spending time with his favourite human. He is initially quite a shy boy, but soon comes round with the help of his favourite treats and a few head scratches. He could live with children aged 10+ who are respectful and give him his space, should he need it, however he will need to be the only pet. We are also looking for a quiet area for Jet to live in and explore safely.

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!
