About Cairo

Gorgeous boy Cairo came to LAA due to his owner moving away. He is such a sweet boy who adores affection and plenty of cuddles, often climbing right up to your shoulders to give you a proper kiss! Cairo has only ever been a house cat however being so young and adventurous we are looking for a home where he can have the option to go out and begin exploring the big outdoors as safely as possible. Cairo is not comfortable with other cats so he must be the only pet in the household. Additionally, Cairo loves humans so much that he doesn't like being left on his own for too long, therefore his new owner must be at home for at the least part of the day.

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!
