About Maximus

Handsome boy Maximus sadly came to LAA as a stray. He is a very loving young man who has had a pretty rough time before he came into our care. However, after some expert veterinary care, and plenty of love and affection from the cattery team, he is increasing in confidence every single day. Maximus loves fuss and affection, with chin scratches being his absolute favourite, and if you are lucky enough, he will even come and snuggle on your lap, often for long periods of time! He also really enjoys his food, and using food as a way to gain his trust seems to work quite well. Maximus is unlikely to want to live with any other animals as he seems very uncomfortable in their presence. However, he would probably be happy living with children over the age of 10 years. Maximus would need a quiet and understanding home as he can be very sensitive to loud noises and fast movements.

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!
