About Trixie

Beautiful Trixie came to LAA as her owner could no longer care for her. She is a very sweet little lady with so much love to give. Sadly, Trixie is finding cattery life difficult with all the strange smells and and noises, but she is coping well with the help of lots of friendly faces and plenty of chin tickles and affection. Trixie loves human attention, and she purr's her little heart away every time she receives fuss. Trixie will need a quiet home without any other pets so that she can comfortably build her confidence with her new surroundings. She would also be best suited to a home without any young children under the age of 10 years, and must be give suitable hiding places if she feels pressured or unsure in any situation. 

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!
