About Mau Mau

Adorable boy Mau Mau sadly came to LAA as his owner could no longer care for him. He is such a sweet, loving cat who adores fuss and affection, even sneaking on your lap for more love if he trusts you. Mau Mau is quite a sensitive soul, and is taking a little while to adjust to his surroundings here at the centre, but he never misses a chance to have a cuddle with one of the team, which is helping him understand that this isn't such a scary place after all. Mau Mau would need to be the only pet in the home, since he seems to prefer his own company. Although Mau Mau is incredibly affectionate, ideally he would feel more comfortable in a quiet, adult only home, although may be happy living with experienced, respectful teens.

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!
