About Tuppence

Beautiful Tuppence sadly came to LAA as her owner was too ill to care for her. She is a little bundle of joy, always looking to get on your lap and have lots of fuss and attention. She can also be quite a chatty little lady, always making you aware that she is around. She would love a home that can give her plenty of attention, with someone around for most of the day, since she can get quite upset when left alone for long periods of time. She would happily live with respectful young children of at least 10 years of age, but would prefer to be the only pet so the limelight is all on her. 

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!
