About Dolly

Sweet little Dolly came to LAA as her owner could no longer care for her. She is a beautiful girl as you can see who has plenty of character to match. Dolly loves her fuss but 'on her terms' will let you know once she has had enough. She is also extremely playful, and sometimes does like to say "no that's my toy", so we are looking for an experienced owner who is familiar with cat body language to be able to read the signs if she isn't interested in interacting. Dolly would be better off in a home without any children or pets so that she can have the limelight all to herself.

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!
