About Thomas and Gracie

This adorable pair sadly came to LAA since their owner could no longer care for them. They are a very sweet couple who tend to stick together through thick and thin. Both cats were quite unsettled and nervous when they first arrived at the centre, but since then they have flourished into little fusspots, very rarely turning down the opportunity of getting a fuss and a head scratch. As they have been together since birth, this brother-sister paring would need to stay together when they go to their new home, since they are practically joined at the hip. They would prefer to be the only pets, and due to their nervousness around loud noises, would most likely be better suited to an adult-only home, though they may be happy living with one or two quiet, respectful teenagers. Thomas & Gracie would benefit from living in a quiet area away from any roads.

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!
