About Sophia

Gorgeous little lady Sophia came to LAA as sadly her owner could not give her the time that she needed. She is such a sweetheart with bags of character but she does need someone around for at least part of the day. She will also need plenty of enrichment when spending time alone at home to keep her mind busy so plenty of toys, scratch post, food puzzles etc are a must. Sophia loves to be with you and is great with respectful children. She loves fuss and is very playful, one of her favourite pastimes being the 'catnip roll' (as you can see from the picture). We are still assessing whether she would need to be the only pet i the home, but it is likely she would be compatible with a young male that is used to the company of other cats. 

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!
