About Garfield 

Handsome man Garfield came to LAA as sadly his owner was moving house and could not take him along. Garfield is a very sweet boy who is currently struggling slightly to adapt to the cattery environment. However, with each day that passes he is settling more and more and his true personality is starting to blossom. He is an affectionate boy, who loves his home comforts and soft, cosy beds, but will equally enjoy a play session with some of his favourite toys. He would really benefit from a home without any young children, but he would possibly be happy living with respectful teenagers. Additionally, Garfield must be the only pet in the household. Once Garfield knows you he is a proper little cuddle monster and he also loves a good game of fetch so would certainly brighten up anyone's life. 

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!
