About Storm

Gorgeous Storm sadly came into the centre since her owner could no longer care for her. Although Storm can be fearful of new situations and people intitially, with the right amount of patience and love, her huge personality soon begins to shine and the more she trusts you, the more affectionate she becomes. Storm can be a little feisty when in situations that unsettle her, and would therefore need an experienced owner who can be patient with Storm and allow her to settle in to the home at her own pace. Despite her age, Storm can be very active and loves to play with her toys, especially if a human decides to join in on the game. Using play can be a great way to help Storm bond with her new owners, and will help her to trust new people and environments. Storm would need a home without any other pets or children in order for her to feel completely secure and safe. 

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!
